Wenge (also known as African Rosewood), features a incredibly bold grain pattern as well as a very distinct color. As a matter of fact, Wenge is used as a “standard color” in many coloring systems. It is often sourced by interior designers and architects for its unique look, solid durability and inherent stability. Wenge is a great wide plank flooring choice when you want to make a bold statement.
Beside being a great wood for floors and staircases, Wenge is also prized for its resonant qualities. Many instrument makers use it in the construction of drums, guitars and other instruments.
Wenge is the product of the Millettia Laurentii, a tropical timber that grows mostly in the Congo, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea.
