Welcome back to Fantastic Floor Presents, the only blog series that shines a spotlight on the most popular hardwood flooring materials available today. This week we're featuring one of our most popular South American products: Tarara!
Tarara hardwood flooring, also known as Canarywood, is a colorful, exciting exotic hardwood from the forests of Brazil and Bolivia. It's heartwood varies in color from bright yellow to deep orange, with long streaks of black, purple, and red throughout. This dramatic contrast gives the wood an especially vibrant, exotic look.
Like most exotic hardwood varieties, Tarara hardwood is a very durable flooring material. It is also, however, very easy to work with, making it popular with woodworkers and furniture makers. The interlocked, irregular grain pattern and uniform texture is dynamic enough to catch the eye of house guests, but versatile enough to complement almost any home design scheme.
