January 29, 2010, Newsletter Issue #16: Brazilian Hardwood Flooring

Tip of the Week

When it comes to beauty and strength, Brazilian hardwood flooring is at the top of the list. Two varieties of this exotic hardwood flooring are the Brazilian Cherry and it's cousin, Brazilian Teak.

Brazilian Cherry, also known as "Jatoba" in South America, is quite popular due to its similarity to oak ... only it's twice as strong! The main color of Jatoba is dark orange or reddish-brown, with dark brown or black streaks. Brazilian Teak or "Cumaru" is quite similar to Brazilian Cherry, but its hue is a warmer brown with not as much red tone. As far as hardness goes, Brazilian Teak is one of the hardest varieties of wood in the world!
