Ebony Flooring and Ebony-Stained Wood | FlooringStores
Scientific Name:. Ebony is a dense black hardwood, most commonly yielded by several different species in the genus Diospyros , which also contains the persimmons. Ebony is dense enough to sink in water. It is finely-textured and has a very smooth finish when polished, making it valuable as an ornamental wood. Species of ebony include Diospyros ebenum Ceylon ebony , native to southern India and Sri Lanka; Diospyros crassiflora Gabon ebony , native to western Africa; and Diospyros celebica Makassar ebony , native to Indonesia and prized for its luxuriant, multi-colored wood grain.
Years ago, I wrote an article about real ebony hardwood. This article is about the ebony species, rather than ebony stained hardwood floors. I was recently interviewed by Architectural Digest about the pros and cons for ebony stained wood vs true ebony, so I thought I would share some of the differences between the two.. These days, dark hardwood floors are all the rage these days.
