Plywood and cheap linoleum!

If you can even find linoleum (real linoleum) anymore, it would harken back to the early 1900’s.

You could always look around at some of the architectural recycle/resale places. I salvaged a house in Indiana that was built from pieces of a river boat in the 1800’s and the fellow I salvaged it for sold all of it to some place in NYC that sells only used stuff.
Some of the floor/deck boards were white oak, 16-24” wide and 25-30’ long.
They were also 2” thick and heavy as my ex mother in laws biscuits.
All of them were back hollowed with a draw knife to help prevent cupping. You could see the marks where the draw knife started and stopped.
