Ipe Wood, commonly known as Brazilian walnut, is a stunning South American exotic wood. Ipe is a hard, robust wood that is inherently resistant to decay, abrasion, weather, and insects. It has a density nearly twice that of most woods and is up to five times tougher. It has a medium to darker brown tone, similar to mahogany, and has the charm of a great interior wood while also lasting a long period. Ipe Wood timber has grown in popularity as a low-cost alternative to teak.
