A subtle backdrop to aesthetics ranging from traditional to contemporary, South Mountain’s Monterey hardwood flooring melds hardy natural tones with hand-scraped or wire-cut surface detailing at a competitive price point. The 3/8-inch by 5-inch boards are available in species such as oak, maple, birch, and American hickory and are coated with six layers of a UV-cured Treffert-brand aluminum oxide finish. Watch for new additions to the line this year, including gray and off-white colors and an oil-finished smooth surface. South Mountain Flooring, 516.487.3510; www.southmountainflooring.com.
