Wood-floor inlays used to be just for the rich. But the advent of laser saws changed all that. Now floor art is within the reach of nearly any homeowner, and Decorative aims to please. Choose from affordable stock patterns (like the 6 3/4-inch accent blocks shown below, starting at around $65), or design your own custom inlay or border, in domestic or exotic wood. No job is too small or too large, says president Jim Garth. He's not kidding: If the company
can make a 36-foot, $120,000 medallion for a Saudi Arabian prince, it can certainly handle a compass rose for your entryway.
