Walking into Originate Natural Building Materials Showroom is an adventure in texture, color and materials. The business specializes in interior finishes that are environmentally friendly, non-toxic, durable, and made from natural, renewable, and recycled resources. See and touch samples of an amazing array of products made from recycled plastics, plant materials, glass and more. These innovative and unique materials are as beautiful and durable as traditional interior finishes. Products include everything you need to remodel your home including: countertops, cabinetry, flooring, paint, stain, fireplaces, and salvaged building materials. Originate was established in Tucson in October of 2003 to serve as a local and regional source of environmentally sound building materials. Here homeowners and designers have a place to see and touch these materials. The showroom is in a lovely rehabbed warehouse in the Historic Warehouse Arts District at 526 N 9th Avenue.
Originate celebrated its 10th anniversary on October 26, 2013. This achievement is remarkable in the face of the recession which hit the housing market very hard in Arizona. Originate navigated the downturn in the economy and continues to function as a business and community resource, open Tuesday–Saturday and by appointment. The owner, Natasha Winnik and the Originate staff, enjoy sharing knowledge about natural building materials and helping clients make informed decisions during the design and build process.
Looking ahead, Originate is now offering consulting and design services including: commercial and residential design, project management, healthy building materials selection, and client advocacy. Originate staff are masters of healthy and beautiful interiors ready to help with your next project. Call 520-792-4207 for appointment or information.
