Tajibo flooring, also often referred to as Ipe or Lapacho, is a South American wood species that grows in humid subtropical forests. Similarly, to Morado the timber can be found in Bolivia, with the trees maturing at around 25 metres tall.
This is a rarely seen exotic wood which contains dark and black heartwood colours. The sapwood is much lighter in colour meaning you get beautiful colour variations throughout every board and block. Tajibo is also known for its durability, and we make sure that every plank is FSC-certified to assure that the project meets your environmental expectations.
What is Tajibo Wood Flooring?
Our Tajibo wood flooring comes in the form of Birnham, a satin lacquered floor, with a micro bevel profile.
Part of our Specialist woods collection, this floor has intense golden hues that contrast with dark brown colours and swirling grain patterns within the wood. The floor adds warmth and natural feeling to every surface.
Available in plank and herringbone format, these 19mm thick South American boards are versatile in their application. Plus, with planks available in lengths of up to 1.4m, you can create an amazing interior design with these Tajibo wood floors.
Characteristics of Tajibo Wood Flooring
The Tajibo wood species is known primarily for its delightful natural range of colours.
From greenish and golden browns to intense black highlights, you can expect a wide range of colour variation, with no two boards or blocks every truly being the same. The gran pattern showcases this beautifully.
You’ll find something new to draw your eye every time you visit a Birnham surface, keeping your project fresh forever.
The wood is also extremely dense and hardwearing. Paired with an engineered construction and a thick wear layer, Tajibo flooring will last the distance in even heavy traffic commercial projects.

The best rooms for Tajibo Wood Flooring
Tajibo will lighten and experience tonal changes slowly and naturally throughout the passing of time as it oxidizes to your environment, meaning your project will hold nature in it throughout its entirety. This makes the wood a great choice for a space that wants to keep constant interest, and where the floor is the backbone of the project.
Commercially the tones are great to link to brand identity and create strong statements. Whilst residentially the warming tones can provide a sense of comfort.
Due to a 6mm wear layer, the boards and blocks can be sanded when necessary, so you can return the wood to its ‘just bought’ feeling for decades and beyond.
As a result of this time denying construction, Birnham feels at home in any space looking to utilise to natural tones and character – be it for a cosy lounge area, or a bustling pub floor this exotic wood will feel perfect in place.
