‘Imperfect Beauty’ Inspires Cladding


Windfall Lumber now employs reclaimed wood in a wall cladding line that reflects the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi, or imperfect beauty.

The Tumwater, WA-based lumber company has embraced the concept in its Sabi Cladding Collection. 

According to the company, the collection is comprised of four distinct finishes and textures.

Reclaimed Wood

Sabi wall cladding is made from Douglas fir and hemlock, reclaimed from solid and glue laminated beams and lumber that came from deconstructed industrial, agricultural, and residential buildings in the Pacific Northwest.

All of Windfall Lumber's architectural products are made from reclaimed and sustainably harvested wood.

The company says the wall cladding can be finished in neutral, earth-toned colors and the tongue-and-groove boards are four and a half inches wide and a half-inch thick. They are offered in two- to eight-foot lengths.
