Sucupira (bowdichia nitida)

Sucupira is a most unusual and striking timber. Warm chocolate and chestnut brown colour with a wide variation of grain and figure within a stable colour variation. Subtle hints of a shimmering golden overtone enhance sucupira and give it a warm glow.

Sucupiras grain has the appearance of pheasant feathers, and with its silver gray slightly waxy over sheen combined with the rich red brown heartwood will be a feature in any interior where an unusual timber is valued.

Strong, hard and heavy, sucupira is used for structural work and boatbuilding as well as finest flooring.

Sucupiras fine dense grained appearance is perfect for period country houses where it compliments the warm aged patina of 18th century Honduras mahogany furniture. But it is also a timber at home in contemporary interiors where a dark warm brown wood is preferred rather than the dense matt black/brown of wenge.
