Elemental Hardwoods has expanded its exotic hardwood flooring line with the addition of Black Mesquite, a hard-to-source wood species known for its extreme stability, durability, distinctive character and chocolate and gray brown grain patterns. Sourced sustainably from the high desert Chaco region of northern Argentina and Paraguay, Black Mesquite has become a favorite for homes and offices looking to add a warm, rustic flavor to their flooring applications.
Dense, with a silky texture, wild grain and character, Black Mesquite possesses a range of lustrous brown and gray-brown colors that will darken some with age. Its extreme stability, rivaling the most stable woods on the planet, makes it not only highly workable, but also a top choice for glue or nail down applications, especially in difficult environments.
Elemental Hardwood’s Black Mesquite flooring is currently available in unfinished square edge TG4S in 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch thicknesses, widths that span from 3 to 8 inches and 1- to 7-foot lengths.
