The core value of Grain Designs lies in the material we have chosen to work with; our name is an expression of this value. The meaning intended by Grain Designs is that it’s an investigation of the finest details of a single piece of wood, the physical wood grain. However, there is a more eloquent underlying meaning. The investigation of “grain” isn’t just the wood grain suggested above, rather each minute detail such as knots, nail holes, and character marks that tell the story each piece of wood. Grain is also an ode to our region as North Dakota and even some Grain Designs team members were raised on agricultural roots.
The map illustrates the location of Grain Designs salvage projects and where we’ve sourced reclaimed wood from. Below the significance of reclaimed wood is explained a bit more in detail.
