Eucalyptus Pilularis, or commonly known as Blackbutt, is a timber that is synonymous with the Australian landscape. It comes as no surprise that it’s also one of the countries favourite materials to build flooring from. It’s durable, beautiful, warm in tone and transcends fads and fashion. With excellent technological advancements, the unique markings of the timber have been replicated across timber-look products too, such as hybrid, laminate and vinyl floorings.

Commonly found across the East Coast of Australia, the timber will be right at home across a range of architecture and interior styles.
