Exotic Hardwoods: Ipe, The Brazilian Walnut

Known as ipe or ironwood, Brazilian Walnut is one of the toughest hardwood floors available.

Pros: Ipe is so strong and hard that it’s often used for exterior decking.

Cons: Ipe is so difficult to fabricate that many floor installers may balk at taking on this wood.

The environmental question: Harvested from Central and South America, Ipe was once regarded as one of the better options for exotic hardwood, but more recently it has come into question as heavy demand has reduced the availability of FSC-certified supplies.

Environmentally conscious consumers should verify that their wood is sustainably harvested as indicated from certification by the FSC.
