Kuku guarantees to captivate your attention with its dark deep rich tones that occasionally are highlighted with shades of lighter wood. Kuku exhibits very familiar colours and textures that can be found in some of the more recognizable hardwoods such as American Walnut. The difference, however, is in Kuku's unique dark swirling patterns that result in each plank becoming a distinctive part of the finished floor. The extreme changes in the grain gives Kuku floors a dynamic, constantly fresh approach with which more traditional floors can't compete. Kuku fits comfortably in both rustic and formal settings. Its beautiful chocolate colour blends smoothly in settings from libraries to studies and offices, where its beautiful colour is simply breathtaking. Kuku is truly a floor that is both versatile and fresh; it is very seldom offered outside its native tropical country.
