SAN DIEGO, CA – Eldorado Stone, manufacturer of the world’s most believable architectural stone veneer, continues to capture the character and warmth of classic American barn wood with the debut of Dawnwood and Stratuswood, the two newest color palettes for its award-winning Vintage Ranch™ profile. Dawnwood, which presents a whitewashed beige barn wood, and Stratuswood, a warm-toned and earthy gray, expand upon the color offerings in this popular stone veneer, allowing designers and homeowners to craft a contemporary design while incorporating the timeless beauty of some of North America’s most iconic structures.
“Designers are shifting away from the icy, cool grays often used to achieve a modern aesthetic, which means now is the perfect time to give a contemporary twist to our Vintage Ranch profile,” said Sarah Lograsso, Director of Marketing. “With the introduction of Dawnwood and Stratuswood, we’re excited to give professionals and homeowners the perfect textures to modernize their designs with warmer neutral hues while incorporating the charm of aged barn wood.”
The introduction of Dawnwood and Stratuswood drive a growing trend of warming up the icy cool neutrals that typically characterize contemporary spaces. These nostalgic new color palettes incorporate subtle warm notes of beige and taupe while uniquely interpreting the weather-worn texture and patina of barn wood. In addition to Dawnwood and Stratuswood, Vintage Ranch is available in four other timeless shades: Doverwood, Foxwood, Parchwood and Saddlewood.
Made of concrete, Vintage Ranch is an authentic wood plank stone profile that has received numerous awards, including a “30 Most Innovative Products” award from Beautiful Kitchens & Baths, a “Top 100 Product” from This Old House, a “Top 101 Product” from Building Design & Construction and an International GOOD DESIGN™ Award. Each plank is carefully hand painted to display the unmatched beauty and depth of natural textures.
