Helene Curtis Industries, founded in Chicago in 1927, was a leading producer of personal care products. In the 1930s, shampoo was only available in beauty salons, but because of the popularity of the product and the demand the company saw, Helene Curtis decided to create Suave, which would be available for retail sale. Suave remains one of the top selling personal care brands in the US today. The Helene Curtis headquarters, located in Chicago, was built in 1912. Like many buildings from that time, it eventually fell into a state of disrepair and was unfortunately no longer safe for people to use, so it was set to be deconstructed. We knew immediately that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share such a cool piece of history, and we acquired gorgeous Reclaimed Antique Heart Pine lumber that will be milled into reclaimed flooring! This is a special, limited-supply product!
