Light Mango Furniture UK
Mango wood is a hard, dense wood which to be long lasting needs to be properly seasoned and kiln dried, which in the case of Indonesian Mango means a period double that of other tropical woods like Teak or Mahogany. Mango wood displays colour properties unlike most other woods, it has a wondrous close grain which varies in colour within each tree, changing from a light tan colour all the way through green and grey hues to a mid to dark brown. It is this stunning grain which makes mango wood furniture desirable, providing a charming rustic look to any home.
The strong timber is also a great choice for furniture due to its mechanical properties. It is a pleasure to work with and takes cutting and turning easily. The multi-hued grain looks best in large flat panels and sweeping curves which allow the splendour of the grain to show. The wood looks especially beautiful crafted into large, simply formed items such as bookcases or tables, letting the grain sell itself rather than requiring ornate features.
Mango wood furniture is one of the most sustainable timber products on the planet, being made from what is essentially a waste by-product of the massive mango fruit industry in Asia. As the trees are continually being cut down to create space for younger trees which will produce more fruit, it would be a shame to waste such a valuable and decorative commodity hence the mango farmers sell on the timber to subsidise their livelihood.
