Materials and Processes
At Oshkosh Designs, we utilize a variety of natural hardwoods, metals, stone, glass, and leather, allowing our artisans to create a limitless array of designs that span the breadth of classic and contemporary styles. See our list of inventoried materials. We incorporate traditional techniques with modern precision laser and waterjet technology for true artisan quality with quick turnaround times.
Our Environmental Commitment
Oshkosh Designs is committed to environmental stewardship. We are proud that our manufacturing plant is a 100% zero-waste facility. We utilize every scrap of material we bring in and even collect sawdust for use by local farmers in and around Winneconne, Wisconsin.
All of our lumber is purchased from FSC-certified suppliers. Our inlay wear-layers are 5/16″ thick, which allows us to conserve hardwood while providing more than enough workable surface if refinishing is required. We utilize a water-based pre-finish to minimize VOC emissions, both for the benefit of our customers and the environment, and all of our products are CARB compliant. Additionally, we use 85% post-consumer waste glass, and incorporate reclaimed materials whenever requested.

Oshkosh Designs began in 1991 as Historic Floors of Oshkosh. Working to restore a beautiful historic home near the University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh, the team was unable to locate a manufacturer who could recreate the home’s original exquisite parquet flooring and hardwood floor inlays. So they set out to craft it themselves. Word soon spread of the quality craftsmanship and, with that, our company was born.
Oshkosh Designs has undergone significant growth since its founding in 1991. What began as a niche company focused on the restoration of wood floors and wood floor inlays has expanded into an innovative design studio and manufacturing facility that crafts decorative installation art for historic and contemporary homes and businesses. The name was changed from Historic Floors of Oshkosh to more accurately reflect our product line, which now includes wall accents, fireplace mantels, stone flooring, wall dividers, furniture, and a wide variety of other home décor products. In 2011, the company was purchased by Brenda Kubasta, a highly motivated and passionate business leader with over 12 years of industry experience. Brenda’s expansive vision has continued to bring Oshkosh Designs into homes and businesses throughout the world.
Through all of these changes, one thing hasn’t changed: our dedication to manufacturing premium-quality handcrafted products to order, while maintaining rigorous environmental standards, right here in the USA.
