The latest additions to our line of products are Real Wood Box Beams.  Available in four distinctive texture styles, and offered in three-sided and four-sided options, they can be used to create a particularly gorgeous box beam ceiling.  Made of virgin wood, they are each painstakingly faux finished to match the color, texture, and character of real vintage barn wood as closely as possible.

Through a mineral-based wood treatment that acts as a reactive stain, the wood responds to moisture just like antique barn wood does.  When they get wet, they darken in tone.  And when they dry, their color gradually lightens.  The result is a beautiful, weathered color that lends a truly rustic charm to any design.
