What is now LV Wood was founded in Buffalo NY by my father, Jim Caroll. After having worked as a master antique refinisher, my father developed a true Reverence For Wood, and that was what he called his first company.
In the early 1980’s he noticed the rising trend in wood flooring, watching as it gained in popularity over carpet and linoleum that had been the norm for so many years. In 1985 he opened Buffalo Hardwood in a modest storefront on Hertel Avenue, in the predominantly Italian neighborhood of North Buffalo.
With his wife and partner Carolyn Caroll at his side, Pops and CC as we affectionately called them, placed the company atop the wood flooring industry. They won prestigious awards from the National Wood Flooring Association for their uniquely high end work, year after year. As a young boy I remember being very impressed seeing all of those big trophies lined up in the small showroom.

The second one walks through the narrow door to the large flat, the effect is palpable. The city noise is gone, and one is welcomed by the pleasant smell of wood. This is a haven of calm. And inspiration. The flat is richly decorated with modern art, exclusive furniture and, not least, bespoke solutions in wood.
After serving as a private home for a number of years, the large flat in the heart of Copenhagen is now a Dinesen Home, which captures the essence of the family-run company: the passion for wood, architecture and design, the high level of quality, close client relationships and the desire to provide a source of inspiration.
Attention has been paid to every single detail in the redesign of Dinesen Home. The indirect light, which is a signature feature for the designer, creates an evocative setting for the many elements to be explored. The books on architecture, art and photography in the small office. The plank table, which has been dyed with Linseed Oil in the colour note Paris Blue, as an homage to another inspiring metropolis. World-class glass and photographic art. Wild flowers and grass.
To embrace both the past and the future, the flat is furnished with customised classics as well as modern Danish and international furniture. The mood is Nordic and light but with international substance and appeal.
Warm and natural essence of living.
