The rich red and brown tones deepen with age, becoming more beautiful as time goes on. A cherry floor will lend a sense of timeless elegance to design styles from traditional to contemporary. You’ll feel elegant every time you step in a room with a cherry floor, almost like you’ve wrapped yourself in silk.
It Started with a Grandfather Clock
As the 19th century dawned, most farmers and artisans still kept time by the sun. A few wealthy householders owned a clock. Only the very rich enjoyed the status—and the pleasure—of a musical tall-case clock. They played up to 12 different popular songs—on the hour or on demand. Most were made in Connecticut from the rich-hued, resonant cherry wood for which the Connecticut River Valley is known.
By 1830, Connecticut was the clock-making center of the world. Almost 50 years later, native son Henry Clay Work composed “My Grandfather’s Clock,” giving the clock the charming moniker we know today.What story will you tell about your floors?
