Original hardwood flooring is a huge win in both old homes and new ones, as it adds so much character and warmth to a space. But you haven’t seen hardwood floors like the ones Erin Napier of “Home Town” recently installed in her family’s country house, and it will be hard not to become absolutely obsessed with them.

“Even a dusty, cluttered mid-construction peek of the girls’ Folly floors by @mirthstudio at our country house make my heart beat fast!” Napier captioned the March 16 pic. “HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SUCH COOL HARDWOOD FLOORING?! I can’t wait for you to see the custom design we did with Mirth for our own bathroom flooring.”

“WOOD?!” actor Chris Sullivan commented. Another follower added “How is that wood? I’ve never seen anything like it! Soooo cool!”

Mirth Studio specializes in creating the world’s first patterned hardwood flooring. After installation, these floors mirror the look of vintage and antique painted hardwood that is able to withstand years of walking, dancing, jumping, and shuffling.

The environmentally-responsible hardwood tiles are made and printed in South Carolina. The product was created by founder and creator Sally Bennett, who wanted to have a hand-painted floor in her home but couldn’t find a pre-painted product that could be installed.

And looking to stay away from cold tiling and cement, Bennett decided she needed to fill the gap in the market. And Mirth Studio was born.

Installing Mirth Studio hardwood tiles is a breeze thanks to their tongue-and-groove design, and the tiles can be installed over existing flooring or glued down to the subfloor.

Mirth Studio has expanded to offer peel-and-stick wall decals and flooring, porcelain tiles, and standard hardwood planks, too, so you’ll find something for every room of the house over on the company’s website.
