When it comes to wood species, there’s a whole world out there. African woods range from the large figuration patterns of Limba and zebrawood to the very fine grain character of makore and sapele. Indian rosewood and Macassar hail from Asia and evoke the refined millwork and furniture of the deco era when these woods were stunningly popular. South American varieties such as purpleheart and Brazilian cherry offer rich, saturated color that will make a strong, high-craft statement for flooring. For a more rustic craftsman look, eucalyptus and reclaimed redwood are effective options. Travel beyond oak and explore the wide world of wood.
