Industrious Senescence: The Artistry of Wood and Craftsmanship by Anthony Hughes

Anthony Hughes’ ‘Industrious Senescence’: Where Nature Meets Craftsmanship in Flooring

In the heart of nature’s tapestry, there emerges a fresh eloquence of wood and craftsmanship, stirring souls and invoking wonder. Brought forth from the visionary depths of Anthony Hughes, the series christened “Industrious Senescence” draws the awe of many, pushing the boundaries of what the world perceives as mere ‘flooring.’

Each plank, graced by the gentle touch of sand, reveals the whispered stories of its grains. Thereafter, a dance of screen painting imprints it with shades of humanity’s making. This juxtaposition – where raw earthiness marries the mechanical vestiges of urban life – adds an unanticipated grit, tinged with the warmth of timber.


Beyond the simple juxtaposition, Hughes graces each piece with deep flocks, twinkles of metallic, soft suede whispers, and twines that weave tales of yore. Each step taken upon this canvas evokes myriad sensations, a symphony of textures that beg to be felt, pondered upon.

But this artistry does not remain static. As days blend into years, the crafted floors evolve, fade, wearing away layers only to reveal a new story, a fresh color, an untouched design, waiting to share its own secret.

The critics, with their discerning eyes, hail Hughes’ passionate foray into this artisanal realm. For while he dances with innovative possibilities, he remains grounded, ever-conscious that these are more than mere designs; they are sanctuaries that will cradle countless memories in homes around the world.
