Solid mango: unusual, sustainable and hard-wearing.
As specialists in premium, artisanally produced solid wooden furniture, the quality of the pieces we offer is of the utmost importance to us. The woods we select retain the nobility of the tree and its living beauty. Each variety of wood selected is characterised by its own unique features.
When the mango tree is mentioned, you immediately think of its fragrant fruit, but did you know that it is also a very dense wood with stunning characteristics? The mango is native to Asia and is an exotic wood that offers a rich palette of tones, ranging from a deep honey colour to dark brown with a beautiful grain. Although the mango tree is singular in its appearance, it is also singular in its qualities of robustness and density... and, the icing on the cake, it is a fine example in terms of environmental protection: the tree is exploited for the wood industry when it reaches maturity.
The visible grain is very attractive and displays shades of brown, yellow and rosy through to red! The colouration is due to a botanical phenomenon, "spalting" which is specific to the mango tree and produces this multiplicity of effects, making each plank of wood unique.
The mango tree is highly valued for its aesthetic characteristics.
With great density, mango is considered to be a hardwood that is strong and stands up to knocks and bumps and the passage of time. It is very popular in furniture making for all types of interior use and, if properly protected, is ideal for bathroom cabinets.
The mango tree takes time to live its first life before being cut down, the periods during which it bears fruit make the wood denser and harder.
The grain is very pronounced and varied, forming striations of great elegance.
