Dura Supreme Cabinetry has introduced a new wood species to their product offerings, Rustic Hickory. Rustic Hickory is known for its dramatic rustic appearance and color variation as well as knots, burls, mineral streaks and pitch pockets. Color will vary from creamy white to dark brown. Knots and character marks will be random and prevalent in all shapes and sizes.
“This beautiful wood species offers versatility with rustic appeal. Rustic Hickory works well with transitional and even contemporary designs where grain texture and knots create an intriguing look. Hickory with a “Morel” finish creates a soft, gray hue that works so advantageously with neutral and gray environments,” explained Karen Wistrom, Vice President of Marketing for the Company.
