Research by Spa Laminates has revealed that 90,000 people visited its website,, between September 2003 and August 2004.

The site contains more than 200 veneer examples and Spa Laminates said a top choice for architects and designers is microberlinia Brazzavillensis – otherwise known as zebrano or zebra wood. This is closely followed by three of the darkest veneers available – American black walnut, wenge and Macassar ebony.
