HomerWood Premium Hardwood Flooring has garnered two ADEX (Award for Design Excellence) awards-the distinction awarded byDesign Journal,a leading international design trade magazine. Competing from among a record 2,000+ entries, HomerWood received ADEX Gold for its superior Oil Naturals Finish and top-level Platinum for one of its hot custom hardwood flooring designs.

“Being chosen as a Platinum and Gold winner of the 2012 ADEX Awards brings the kind of third-party validation that money can't buy,” said HomerWood General Manager Paul Walker.

A sculpted, time worn and color washed floor earned HomerWood Platinum ADEX. These hand-scraped surfaces with various color washes create a floor that was inspired by today’s demand for a time worn look with a matte finish, according to the company.

One of the unique offerings in HomerWood’s revitalized Custom Capabilities. Customers can choose from one of the company’s pre-selected designs or create a personal design. HomerWood’s custom looks run the gamut from color-washed visuals to liming, an antique wood treatment which leaves traces of white in the wood’s open grain.  

Gold ADEX went to HomerWood’s Oil Naturals finish that ties in with the “natural” look. The oil finish is extremely low-luster and brings out the graining and texture of the wood and creates a smooth, subtle patina, HomerWood noted.

“We’re proud to offer our customers award winning-products. We focus on developing stylish designs and quality products,” said Walker. “Couple this distinction with the performance qualities of its floors, the company’s dedication to sustainable flooring products and its commitment to service the industry, and you have a winning combination.”

ADEX is one of the largest and most prestigious award program for product design. Categories for this award include furniture, flooring, fixtures and finishes. Winners of this award are published in the AprilDesign Journal.
