Is pickled pine back in style?

My doctors office was redone in a very contemporary modern feel, and I noticed the floors were pickled pine. I haven’t seen that since the late 80s, but it looks surprisingly fresh. It made a very cool and airy feeling in the office.

Pickled pine, Pecky cypress and the various wood species that stain in an intense way are definitely coming back. The key is new stain processing with two and three step processes that create depth and complexity. I just had 10 six over six cypress windows stained with a whitewash base, Khaki second coat and faded charcoal semi-transparent finish. No faux sanding, or revealing the lower levels artificially. the balance of the layers works if applied properly.

Thanks for the photos, OP. When people say you're worse than Hitler, I always say otherwise.

I prefer my 50s knotty pine kitchen and basement.

R2 here. Lange looks more like my windows that that bedroom. I'd post a picture, but they were just done. I'll take a couple and post them if the thread is still alive tomorrow. Properly done it's 3 dimensional, and looks a little like exposed ocean pier wood at low tide.
