Designed for the luxury market, the product measures 5/8-inch thick and has tongue-and-groove end joints to fit tightly together. Boards measure 12 feet long and come in three widths.

With a choice of metal, wood, or concrete bases, the tables come in a wide range of designs with glass accents in turquoise, slate blue, earth tones, and other colors.

Ipé decking tiles are easily installed with the I-Connect system, which lets the tiles float over existing concrete, wood, or other surfaces. Installed as a patio, walkway, landscape feature, or rooftop deck, the stunning tiles offer rich dark brown and olive tones that can be maintained with a penetrating wood sealer, or allowed to patina to a silvery gray. The exotic hardwood is naturally resistant to rot and decay and offers the durability of teak at a fraction of the price, the maker says.
