OVENGAL | In Depth

This stunning wood from West Africa can easily be mistaken for Walnut due to its appearance, although it is more similar to Indian Rosewood. Not many flooring companies use this wood, even though it is reasonably plentiful and sustainable. Like most African woods, it's not only beautiful but reasonably tough, and it will make an amazing looking wooden floor for an adventurous designer.
