16 • June 2019 NEWS SCOPE VENEER STONE Precast concrete veneer leader Eldorado Stone LLC in San Marcos, Calif., continues to capture the character and warmth of classic American barn wood with the debut of two color palettes for its Vintage Ranch profile. Dawnwood, which presents a whitewashed beige barn wood, and Stratuswood, a warm- toned and earthy gray, expand on the stone series' color offerings, allowing designers and homeowners to craft a contemporary design while incorporating the signature of some of North America's most iconic rural structures. "Designers are shifting away from the icy, cool grays often used to achieve a modern aesthetic, which means now is the perfect time to give a contemporary twist to our Vintage Ranch profile," says Eldorado Stone Director of Marketing Sarah Lograsso. "With the introduction of Dawnwood and Stratuswood profiles, we're excited to give professionals and homeowners the perfect textures to modernize their designs with warmer neutral hues while incorporating the charm of aged barn wood." Eldorado corrals color options for Vintage Ranch barn wood series Vintage Ranch Dawnwood (left) and Stratuswood profiles. Each plank is carefully hand painted to display the beauty and depth of natural textures. The introductions drive a growing trend of warming up the icy cool neutrals that typically characterize contemporary spaces, she adds. The nostalgic new color palettes incorporate subtle warm notes of beige and taupe while uniquely interpreting the weath- er-worn texture and patina of barn wood. In addition to Dawnwood and Stratuswood, Vintage Ranch is available in Doverwood, Foxwood, Parchwood and Saddlewood shades. The authentic wood plank stone profile has received recognition in consumer and trade channels, including a "30 Most Innovative Products" award from Beautiful Kitchens & Baths; "Top 100 Product" and "Top 101 Prod- uct" designations from This Old House and Building Design & Construction; and, an Inter- national GOOD DESIGN Award.
