Sucupira is mainly used for high-end flooring in large rooms. It has a medium grain with regular but marked veins. Its colour ranges from dark brown to reddish brown streaked with fine and clear veins, creating a warm and enveloping atmosphere. The colour will darken over time. Very dense and stable, it resists the passage of time, shock and temperature variations.
