If you're looking for a wood that can start conversations, consider the resplendent warmth and character of Coumarou. This tropical hardwood is one of the most unique and durable hardwoods you'll find.

Choose from a resplendent range of colors and styles

Ranging from tans to reddish browns, Coumarou gives you plenty of color options to choose. Over time, the colors will mute slightly, giving Coumarou even more warmth. In addition to flooring, Coumarou makes wonderful wood decks, cabinets, and more.

Grease, liquids and contaminates brought into the house could discolor wood. Consider Cabot Polyurethane oil-based or water-borne to protect wood from stains and keep the floor easy to clean. For floors, consider Cabothane Floor Finish in water-borne for a glass like clear finish.
