Brazilian Cherry

One of the most popular exotic hardwoods, it’s not difficult to see why: Brazilian Cherry's breathtaking reddish-brown heartwood is lined by dark black bands, giving it not only contrast but amazing depth as well. The floor will darken over time to a soft reddish-brown when finished with a water-base finish. Beyond its beauty, Brazilian Cherry is incredibly strong.
