Sustainability with Style – Pioneer Millworks Designer Oak Flooring Collection

Over the past thirty years Pioneer Millworks has crafted a national reputation for manufacturing some of the finest reclaimed & sustainable wood flooring, siding, paneling, and decking — made responsibly right here in the U.S.A. in their employee-owned mills in McMinnville, Oregon and Farmington, New York.

Recently the company partnered with celebrated interior designer David Senise of Spectrum Design Group for their new European style wide plank white oak flooring line — Natural Expressions Collection. This collection is a perfect example of Pioneer Millworks ability to meet high quality standards while remaining committed to their triple bottom line ethos of people, planet, and prosperity.

The Natural Expressions Collection

Partnering with interior designer David Senise for this designer flooring collection, the Pioneer Millworks team expertly combines elements inspired by nature to bring thoughtful sophistication and grounded aesthetics from the natural world into commercial & residential spaces.

“This collection conveys a connection to the natural world — looking at things like pine needles, toasted wheat, and acorns, adopting them into the color palette through tones and finishes that speak to the times in which we live,” explained Senise. “For me personally, developing this collection with Pioneer Millworks was a wonderful opportunity to create a more natural look and feel than other flooring options on the market and provide a truly modern palette for designers and homeowners to utilize that is also healthy and responsible.”

Made with their sustainably harvested FSC® Certified Casual White Oak, the Natural Expressions Collection utilizes an 8” wide plank format paired a highly durable all-natural UV Cured Hard-Wax Oil finish, giving any space an organic flow by allowing each board to express a variety of wood grain patterns.

The twelve stunning natural color finishes and dynamic oak wood grains of the collection inspire scenes of dense forests, flowing fields of wheat, and enigmatic thunderstorms rolling in over the landscape. With names like Nantucket Fog, Toasted Wheat, and Warm Umber, each unique color option in the collection takes on a life and personality of its own. Staying true to their roots, the Pioneer Millworks team diligently worked to make sure the Natural Expressions Collection is also as sustainable as possible, because to them, sustainability is not only a priority — it is a fundamental part of their ethos.

Naturally Good

The heart and soul of the Natural Expressions Collection is Pioneer Millworks sustainably harvested FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified Casual White Oak, which is primarily sourced from a family-run forestry companies in the Appalachian region of Pennsylvania. The casual grade boards are produced by utilizing the upper section of oak trees above the first branches, which gives the flooring its signature character while minimizing waste during production.

Additionally, the collection’s UV Cured Hard-Wax Oil finish is free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) to minimize off-gassing of noxious fumes and maintain healthy indoor air quality.  

Made right here in the U.S.A., this high-quality flooring collection is about more than just delivering a durable flooring product in stunning designer colors, it is about helping homeowners’ and designers to create one-of-a-kind spaces that are healthy for both people and the planet.

“Design has always been a reflection of the times in which people live,” says David Senise. “Today people are more environmentally conscious and have an innate desire to bring nature into their daily lives. This collection gives designers a palette of colors that convey a connection to the natural world that highlight the beauty and simplicity of the wood.”
