When designing projects with smaller budgets, Brown specifies prefinished, engineered wood floors from Mirage/Boa-Franc. Available in various wood species, the collection offers “a way for a client to get a real wood floor at almost half the cost of a traditional wood floor,” he says. It comes in 3/8-inch-thick strips with micron V-joints on all four sides. Brown used American walnut flooring for this project. Mirage/Boa-Franc, 800.463.1303; www.miragefloors.com
