Morado Wood Flooring

Morado Wood Flooring

Morado flooring, also known as Bolivian Rosewood flooring, is a high-quality, stunningly decorative timber that brings striking beauty to any surface. Grown in South America, the rosewood tree matures to incredible sizes of up to 100 feet. Whilst it is most known to originate in Bolivia, you can also find Central American and Brazilian Rosewood. We sustainably source this Morado and set about transforming it into a floor fit for everyday life.

The Morado wood floor we create is called Darwin, which is available in both plank and herringbone.
