Columbia Flooring's Hardwood Essence Collection in Santiago Hickory

Columbia Flooring has launched its new Hardwood Essence Collection, a line of hand-sculpted engineered hardwood planks. Hardwood Essence is available in three species -- Santiago Hickory, El Dorado Maple and Augustine Walnut -- and eight finishes.

The 5-inch planks are crafted from five plies of North American hardwood, with the top ply hand-sculpted to create a slightly rough-hewn texture and rich, aged patina of early American timber. The collection is offered in a 1/2-inch thickness with sculpted edges and ends.
