Elemental Hardwoods has expanded its exotic hardwood flooring line with the addition of black mesquite, a beautiful, 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 Hardwoods was founded in 2000 to provide flooring specialists, distributors, and their customers with an exotic mix of beautiful imported hardwoods, some of which are not available anywhere else in the country. The company’s extensive knowledge of the marketplace combines decades of experience immersed in the Amazon River Basin with a passion for the wood, people, and Amazonian cultures with a strong ethos of long-term forest and community sustainability.
