Raising the Floor

The floor has been elevated.

Raised beyond it's traditional station as a field of color or texture background, the floor serves as a more integrated feature. As important as the objects it supports.

Wood is comfortable in both modern and traditional settings. Also, it's infused with a quality of contradiction — soft and hard, smooth and textured, organic and industrial it'd be difficult to imagine a circumstance in which it wouldn't harmonize.

Tile: Here, dappled colors beneath a white sofa
nearly hold it aloft in their warming energy.

Look closely: A shower. An enclave of stone and tile in a woody disguise.
