  • Description: Palo Blanco hardwood flooring, or Exotic Hickory as it is sometimes called, is cream colored, yellowish-white to yellowish-brown, sometimes sporting brown striping.

Palo Blanco flooring is a beautiful, pale yellow wood with distinctive black striping that is sure to catch the eye with its contrast while soothing with its soft tones.
