Lyptus

Lyptus is a unique, sustainable wood species that has become popular with many homeowners.  It resembles Mahogany with its grain texture and rich, red coloring but it has more color variation.  Lyptus is a hybrid of the Eucalyptus plant and is grown on plantations in South America that are certified to Brazil's sustainable forestry standards.  A notable environmental advantage is that trees grow to full maturity in 15 years (compared to 50+ years for most domestic hardwoods).  Color is primarily a rich, red brown but can vary dramatically from light pink to very dark brown.  Our darker stained finishes temper some of the color variation for a unique and attractive look.
