Warm and welcoming, American Cherry gives off a distinct aura of class. Freshly cut, the wood is of an orangey cast. However with exposure to sunlight, the tone of the wood will darken to a deeper, more pronounced reddish-brown colour. This sensitivity to light is one of the many charming characteristics of Cherry wood and allows each and every American Cherry floor to evolve, over time, into a unique work of art.
