and the most Prestigious Awards Program
Hallmark Floors wins GOOD DESIGN® award | The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd. present the Museum’s annual GOOD DESIGN® Awards Program for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world.
Hallmark Floors True Engineered Hardwood Collection has been recognized by The Chicago Athenaeum as an innovation in the FLOOR+WALL COVERING category. The True collection is truly amazing with stunning colors and features. Hallmark Floors is the first to master this revolutionary technology of replicating “the bog-wood process” that occurs when logs lie buried in lakes, river, and waterways for hundreds of years, deprived of oxygen and sunlight.
We are proud to be voted as an industry leader in manufacturing by The Chicago Athenaeum.
“The emphasis of the GOOD DESIGN® program is on quality design of the highest form, function, and aesthetics a standard beyond ordinary consumer products and graphics. The Chicago Athenaeum’s GOOD DESIGN® program forwards the ideals of a design process that embodies product excellence and endurance and strong public identity.” – GoodDesignAwards.com
UNIQUE WOOD DESIGNED BY NATURE AND TIME
The True Collection:
Some of the most spectacular-looking woods were created by healthy trees falling into adjacent swamps, wetlands, lakes, and rivers, lying buried for hundreds to thousands of years. Deprived of any oxygen and sunlight, they werepreserved from decay by absorbing salt, tannins and minerals’ resulting in the most beautiful, partially fossilizedtimber in a wide range of colors.
