Is mango the new oak?
Many people are now turning to mango wood as an alternative to oak for furniture. A relative newcomer to the UK furniture market, mango is fast becoming very popular. This hardwood is not only beautiful to look at, but also strong and durable making it the perfect choice for furniture pieces with both character and strength.
Advantages of mango wood
As a hardwood, mango is sturdy, yet it is one of the softer hardwoods, which makes it ideal for cutting and shaping into furniture. It is also highly resistant to water, which makes it great for a family home. Despite its strength and durability, mango is a relatively lightweight wood, so if you ever need to move your furniture around, buying mango will make it much easier.
Sustainability is key
One of the biggest advantages of mango wood is its sustainability. As a society, we're all becoming more concerned with looking after our planet, and here at Oak Furniture UK, we are committed to ensuring our furniture is sustainably sourced. Mango trees are predominantly grown in Asia for their fruit. Once they reach a certain age the trees start to produce less fruit and are cut down and replaced with new, young trees. Once upon a time, all that wood would have gone to waste, but now it is made into beautiful furniture.
Beautiful colours and patterns
Mango wood furniture has a distinctive look. The wood has a slightly rough texture, giving it a more relaxed and rustic feel. The patterns in the grain can vary, giving it a very natural appearance. This means each piece really is unique, and the swirls and whorls of the grain look particularly beautiful in larger pieces of furniture such as wardrobes and side-boards.
Easy to look after
Our mango wood furniture is easy to care for, and won't need much work from you. Avoid placing it too close to a radiator or in direct sunlight, as this can dry the wood out. The wax or lacquer we use to finish our furniture reduces the need for polishing, so a quick wipe and buff are enough to keep it looking as good as new.
