Iroko – Chlorophora Excelsa

Often called “African Teak”, it is highly resistant to staining. Used throughout the world for boat decks, piers and lab surfaces. Iroko starts as a pale straw colour and with oiling and exposure to daylight, darkens to a chestnut brown colour. It has a tight interlocked grain and a natural oil which makes it particularly suitable for use in wet areas.

Available as: Worktops, End Grain Chopping Boards, Tables, Wall Racks, Shelving, Overmantels and Home Office.

Our Timbers

We only use the finest furniture grade timbers classified as FAS. With the exception of Iroko, we only use American timbers. Whilst the cost is far higher than their European counterparts, the quality is far higher.
