Mango may be a tasty fruit, but now the wood from it's tree is adding taste to many different types of furniture. Quality furniture such as cabinets and tables are now being made from the lumber of the mango tree. What makes this type of wood such an interesting choice in furniture is that it can be found in different colors, such as shades of pink, dark brown, and light brown.
Mango wood is considered a sustainable material because it is a non-endangered type of wood and because of how quickly the tree grows along with how large the tree can get. In a short time a tree can grow to between eighty and one hundred feet and up to around three to four feet wide. With other types of wood seeing an increase in price, mango wood has become a popular alternative for use in making many types of furniture.
Furniture companies that use this type of wood must inspect it properly before crafting their piece, as the heartwood of the mango tree can develop fungus. This is why it is important to inspect and treat this type of wood prior to making it a piece of furniture.
While light and dark brown colors are the most typical colors found in mango furniture, the color of the heartwood can produce other colors. The colors found are usually pinkish in nature and depend on the time of year the tree was cut down as well as where the tree was located.
While mango wood is a hard wood, it is much softer than many other types of wood, which makes it easier to manipulate and shape. For a stunning choice in furniture, some manufacturers use a combination of both dark and light brown mango wood. Since this wood is especially receptive to cleaning and polishing, entertainment centers and cabinets are among the most popular choices. It's durability and strength also make this a great choice in making beds, tables, and chairs.
This furniture is likely to continue to become a more popular choice due to the fact that it is easy to work with along with the fact that it is also available in various shades of brown and pink. It looks as though more and more households are likely to become part of the mango furniture revolution in the near future.
