Knowing the Exotics: Tigerwood Hardwood

The perfectly-named Tigerwood announces itself with its wildly contrasting wide grains. Tigers, zebras, any animal with stripes come to mind with this truly exotic-looking flooring.

Pros: Tigerwood is all about the drama that this flooring brings to a room. It also has very good resistance to moisture.

Cons: Sunlight may fade those darker stripes, evening out the contrasts that first attracted you to this type of wood.

The environmental question: Harvesting practices vary widely on this unique wood that is native to South America and the African Congo. Organizations such as Rainforest Relief list Tigerwood as one of the species to be on alert for.

Although it takes some research, it is best to choose the flooring that is not only FCS-certified but also verified to come from managed second-growth forests rather than old-growth sources.
