Manhattan Forest Products will showcase its reclaimed and custom wood products at the LuxeHome showroom, opening in June.
LuxeHome, a collection of premier boutiques for home building and renovation, announced that Manhattan Forest Products, manufacturers of restored and reproduced premium hardwood flooring, will open a showroom on the first floor of The Merchandise Mart in Chicago.
Located in the Design Resource Center, Suite 163, the new space is a primary showcase for the New York-based company’s collection of reclaimed and custom wood products.
“We all know we have a responsibility to keep this planet healthy,” says Ron Sauer, vice president of Manhattan Forest Products. “People recycle cans and newspapers, we recycle Manhattan’s buildings. So far we have saved over 1,600 acres of forestry. That’s an area twice the size of Central Park and this is just the beginning.”
The company's mill in upstate New York converts reclaimed wood into flooring, beams, furniture and millwork following “green” principles. The mill is run on electricity generated by solar and wind power, and factory wood waste is recycled into wood pellets, while metal debris from the reclaiming process such as nails, bolts and conduit are recycled.
“Manhattan Forest Products is such a special company, not only because they source reclaimed woods from Coney Island and Manhattan Water Towers for residential and commercial projects, but also the style, color and design of the floors are unique,” said Katherine Flaherty, MMPI’s vice president for building products and special projects. “It’s a compliment to LuxeHome, which offers a wide variety of world-renowned kitchen, bath and building products in more than 115,000-square-feet of space.”

Q: We are having a problem with shrinkage. We make furniture, but someone else sells and delivers it. This person claims he did everything correctly, including opening the furniture wrapping (we wrapped the furniture with shrink-wrap and it was fairly well sealed) and letting it acclimate to the house climate. When the customer moved in, they said the furniture looked really wonderful, but within a week, it started to warp, open joints and crack in a few places. We are so careful to keep our plant at 40 percent RH and check the MC of the lumber. This is frustrating! Can you help?

Q: What is ring shake? How do we detect it in our oak lumber? Does this shake cause a bad odor or other manufacturing problems?
