I am working on tiling my bathroom and my wife picked out the white brazilian pecan plank tiles. I was thinking it would be nice to find a way to use the ‘real’ species for other stuff like a mirror, shelves, etc. The thing is I can’t find any explanations of brazilian pecan and at this point I’m assuming it’s made up. Any pointers or is it too fake to even have a real counterpart? They also have a non-white variety tile that may prove more useful in picking what their inspiration was.

Thanks for your suggestions.

I can’t get the links to open. Copaiba is the trade name for brazilian pecan. It can be very light to very dark. Common uses include flooring. Good luck.
