The Anderson Family of Brands, which includes Anderson Hardwood Floors, Appalachian Hardwood and Virginia Vintage, was purchased in 2007 by Shaw. The transition was smooth and the Anderson brand of flooring is still the same great quality as when the Anderson family owned the company for four generations. Anderson has always been a leader in the hand scraped flooring side of the business, and they continue to be at the front of the industry. Since being acquired by Shaw, Anderson has brought to the forefront some great new products.
With the Lacey Act taking effect in early 2009 Anderson searched for ways to provide their customers with products that had the look and feel of exotic flooring, but were made from domestic species. A new collection was born, Anderson’s Exotic Impressions which contains species like maple and birch. The maples and birches are colored and put through a special process that gives them the look and feel of exotic species like Ipe, Brazilian Cherry, Santos Mahogany and many others.
This step proved successful for Anderson Hardwood Floors and the product has done well in the marketplace.
Hand scraped floors has always been the most successful product Anderson had to offer the hardwood flooring industry. The have hand scraped floors in every branch of their family of brands. In Anderson they have the Della Mano series, Sierra, Hickory Forge, and Cimarron. In the Appalachian side they have the Casablanca, Vineyard, Piazza, and Colonial Manor collections. In the Virginia Vintage, all of the products are hand scraped and this collection continues to lead the industry in style and design.
Anderson although owned by Shaw floors now continues to lead the industry in style and quality. Look for Anderson to come out with new product ideas that push the envelope of design, elegance, functionality, and quality.
