I have seen cork flooring in a super busy place and am stunned at how 
beautifully it has held up.  while we do not have it in our CommonHouse, it is 
in the large health food shop in Kingston, Ny.  It gets many many many people 
walking on it-- and rolling carts as well as commercial delivery handtrucks 
over it.  It has been there several years of rough wear and it looking good.

Does anyone have cork flooring--like this: ? I've heard/read 
good things--that it's eco-friendly, hygienic, has more give and cushioniness 
than wood, absorbs sound well, etc. It seems like it would be a good compromise 
when you need to get your flooring redone. But I don't have any personal 
experience with it, myself. I don't think it lasts as long as well-finished 
flooring, but I think that it probably holds up longer than carpet... I'm 
just speculating on that, though.
