Brazilian Lacewood hardwood flooring is one of the most unique species Elemental offers. Also known as Leopardwood, it is characterized by vibrant golden colored quartersawn flecks and a rich medium-to-dark reddish-brown color. Elemental’s Brazilian Lacewood (Roupala montana) is a sister species to another South American Lacewood (Panopsis rubellens) and true Australian Lacewood (cardwellia sublimia), also known as Northern Silky Oak.
Don’t be fooled by the other Lacewood varieties; though they are very similar in appearance, both are substantially softer than Roupala montana. Elemental’s Brazilian Lacewood has a hardness rating of 2150 lbs, which is very close to Brazilian Cherry (2350 lbs). The other two have a rating of approximately 800 lbs, which is closer to softer domestic species such as Southern Yellow Pine and Douglas Fir.
Elemental currently stocks Brazilian Lacewood in 3/4″ x 3-1/4” & 5” widths; lengths are 1’-7’. The product is clear grade and only available prefinished.
Lacewood hardwood flooring from Elemental Hardwoods Products is a great choice for customers that are tired of traditional varieties such as oak and want a more unique, exotic floor.
