Brandon Claborn is an owner and creative designer of Hardwood Design Company. He believes you need to think in ways others don’t to be different and unique. It is this belief that sparks his creativity of our hardwood products. He is passionate about sourcing and developing materials that are not overly saturated in the design market to offer our clients a product unlike any other. It is this passion that led him to the sourcing and development of unique wood species such as our Texas Mesquite and Texas Post Oak. He chooses wood species that provide an artistic canvas rich in character, grain, and sustainability. You will find Brandon working in our manufacturing shop daily developing hardwood flooring colors, styles, and improving on our authentic processes. He is a firm advocate of authenticity and true old world craftsmanship. It is why we texturize and finish all Hardwood Design Company products by hand. It is not the most efficient method, but the results are unparalleled in the aesthetics and authenticity of an old-world craftsman.
