Q: I am a reporter for a Canadian TV network. I have read a press release re “Real Wood Floors: Look Beyond the Ordinary” from Canada Newswire, the release was sent by National Wood Flooring Association. I am very interested in making a feature story on the new flooring trend stated in the press release.

We are most interested in reclaimed wood floors, hand scraped distressed floors and customization trends like borders, medallions, inlays and mixed media (stone, granite and even leather), etc… Do you have any referrals for me?

A: ..If you want to know anything about medallions, I have a friend who runs Olde World Flooring and he specializes in this. He makes his own, and they are quite fantastic. His name is Allan Macdonald,
