Pioneer Millworks reclaimed barn siding received two Grand Prize awards from the Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E.) for specialty food retailer of the year at the 2010 A.R.E. Design Awards. Pioneer Millworks salvaged barn siding was used as wall treatments in interior and exterior applications at both the Starbucks Coffee Company’s 15th Avenue Coffee & Tea Shop and Roy Street Coffee & Tea Shop.
“We love working with retail designers; there’s always a custom component and some new way of approaching a space. Our antique wood offers character and history and intrigue, something fresh sawn wood can’t accomplish. Using salvaged barn wood in the 15th Avenue Coffee & Tea and the Roy Street Coffee & Tea brought the projects a warm palette of color, added texture, and an honest material with great history,” said Jered Slusser, Pioneer Millworks, designer sales.
