Bark House

Reclaimed Designer Wall Panels

Bark House® Poplar Panels are one of the most extraordinary products that we offer. When applied, they present a mesmerizing and textured reclaimed wood paneling that inspires awe and disbelief among spectators young and old alike.


The Art of Harvesting Tree Bark Panels

We estimate that no more than one in a thousand trees will yield a sheet of bark large enough to become one of these rustic treasures. Harvested in the same manner as our Poplar Bark Shingles, timing and skill are critical to the success of unrolling an unbroken full cylinder from a log.

Due to limb scars, epicormic knots, growth stress, bird peck, and lightning scars, no two panels are ever alike –  are all textural variances that can be present that give each sheet its own unique identity. The distinct colors that flow from the north side to the south of the bark also reveal the direction the tree faced throughout its lifetime.


Rustic Wall Paneling for Any Design

Our Poplar Panels are flattened, kiln-dried, and precision squared in order to make direct applications simple. We also offer vacuum laminated to various substrates for use as cabinetry inserts, stand-off wall mounts, or for exterior walls. The deeply furrowed and rugged outer cork provides the same outdoor protection as our bark shingles while also exhibiting amazing interior acoustical benefits.

Whether you need total bark wall covering or a just small accent, interior or exterior bark siding, or a product specific to a commercial or residential project, our Poplar Panels will create a stunning focal point for any space you choose.  For design ideas, take a look at our Poplar Bark Panel Gallery

We’re getting fabulous, fabulous response.  There’s an incredible interest in organic materials, for the more sensual side of clean, modern design.  When the bark was installed in Denver, everyone had to touch it.  It’s a powerful and compelling material.  We were all smiles. It’s an intellectually compelling product as well as a really physically beautiful product. And it performs well. It’s a sheer joy. We’ve all been wanting more.  The bark installation is right on the money.
