Peach Pit Floors

The Peach Pit floor we spotted over at inhabitat falls into the category of super cool, if not yet super green...

Apparently, Peach Pits (or "pips") are a traditional flooring surface in South Africa. Stone Fruit Floors has updated the process. According to the company's website, the pits are arranged by hand "onto a glued surface and filled with a silica sand and resin mixture, then sealed with a twin pack urethane."

Resin and urethane are not exactly music to our ears, but to be fair, we're not sure if it would be possible to create this floor without the miracle of plastics and satisfy today's demand for durability. Still, we like the use of a waste product, and we're dying to experience what that floor would feel like underfoot.


It's like an updated, warmer version of exposed aggregate concrete.
