Product 4: Arbor Series Wood Veneers
A slimmer alternative to traditional paneling, the Arbor Series Wood Veneers are paper-thin (rather, cardstock thin, for persnickety shoppers) slices of real wood. These veneers are coated with a polyurethane finish, and can then be installed just like contract wallcovering on most interior spaces: walls, ceilings, workspaces, etc. Though made from hardwood trees, the veneers are so thin that many less trees are cut down in the production process, and the trees themselves come from "plantations, which are carefully managed to ensure the forest's health," according to the Arbor Series website: http://www.arborseries.com/index.html . The product comes in everything from Ash to Zebrawood, and a variety of cut styles designed to maximize harvest.
