Exotic Hardwoods: Kempas

Kempas is a reddish-pinkish brown wood from Indonesia and Malaysia that attractively darkens when stained. Kempas creates no drama in your home; it just provides a good, solid hardwood floor that lets other parts of the room shine.

Pros: This is a durable wood that is reasonably priced for an exotic since it is rarely used for purposes other than flooring.

Cons: Kempas will progressively darken with exposure to sunlight.

The environmental question: Kempas wood comes from Malaysia and Indonesia, and there are concerns about large quantities of this wood being imported illegally.

This is not an endangered species, but responsible consumers are advised to check into where their wood is sourced and how it is harvested.
