This week we sat down with a local Portland business we admire, here’s what they had to say!
Question 1: What is Viridian Wood’s mission?
At Viridian, we speak for the trees. We exist to give new life to the precious woods we reclaim, to reduce demand for new lumber, and to make our community a better place for us being here.
Question 2: Why did you choose Portland?
This quote is on our website, but it really sums it up: “We love where we live, and we want to ensure the highest quality of life for generations. It’s why we do what we do.”
Question 3: How could home owners use Viridian wood at home?
We do a lot of local floors and fireplace mantels. We also see customers putting in reclaimed wood accent walls, especially to freshen up an older home.
Question 4: What do you wish clients knew before they came to see you?
A lot of installers think working with reclaimed wood might be more difficult. In most cases it installs exactly the same as any other flooring or paneling
Question 5: What are you optimistic about?
We combined our office, showroom and production in St. Johns late last year. It was a lot of work, but in 2016 we get to the good stuff! It’s awesome having everyone in one place, and it’s paying off with lots of new pre-finishing capabilities and very fast delivery. We’re on a creative roll right now, and we have some really exciting new tabletop and paneling products coming out in 2016.
