Mango Wood Furniture From India
What is the ‘king of fruits? How did the paisley pattern originate? What is common between ‘Kent’, ‘Keitt’, ‘Haden’ and ‘Alphonso’? The answer to all three questions is – mango. The mango tree originated in South-East Asia, mainly in the Indo-Burma region, almost 4000 years ago. After traveling from India to East Asia in the 4th-5th century BC, the journey of the mango tree continued to the western world after Vasco Da Gama reached India in 1498.
While the mango tree is famous all over the world for its aromatic and succulent fruit – of which there are over 1000 varieties – not many people are aware of the other ‘gift’ we get from the mango tree: mango wood.
What is Mango Wood?
Obtained from the evergreen mango tree, mango wood is a type of hardwood with a dense grain and a coarse texture. Even though mango wood is a type of hardwood, it is soft enough to be cut and reshaped into various shapes. It was this quality of mango wood that encouraged furniture manufacturers like Suren Space to bring the wood out of the forests of India and eastern Asia and into their furniture workshops.
Mango wood comes in a whole kaleidoscope of colours, ranging from light to golden brown. Spalting – or the coloration of wood due to the presence of fungi – is common in mango wood. Spalting creates various streaks of colour in the mango wood, like black, green, yellow, amber and sometimes even pink. These unique ‘designs’ make mango wood very attractive, and a popular choice for all types of furniture.
Mango wood has some inherent characteristics, which make it ideal for the creation of outstanding furniture pieces.
- Durability – Mango wood is extremely durable and lasts for many years. This quality makes it perfect for creating bespoke furniture pieces, as per the client’s requirements. Suren Space has an impressive collection of bespoke furniture, a significant section of which is made from mango wood.
- Easy to carve – This ‘soft hardwood’ is easy to carve. That is why master furniture craftsmen like Suren Space are able to create exquisitely carved works of art in furniture.
- Water resistance – With the right treatment and coating, mango wood becomes highly water resistant. Such water-resistant wood is ideal for outdoor furniture, since it can withstand exposure to the elements of Nature.
- Easy maintenance – Who doesn’t want ‘no fuss’ furniture? Mango wood requires very little maintenance, making it the ideal choice for heavy use furniture. That is why many hotels, resorts and restaurants choose Suren Space’s mango wood furniture. Low maintenance furniture is also easy on your pocket!
- Stains well – Wood stains work wonders on mango wood. Stains are used to preserve the grain of the wood, give it a beautiful colour and increase the durability of the wood. Mango wood’s dense grains and beautiful patterns are enhanced by the use of wood stains. Using this technique, Suren Space creates beautiful, customized mango wood furniture, highlighting the unique patterns of every piece of wood.
History of Mango Wood
Mango wood has been around for centuries. The journey of this very versatile tree began in ancient India, from where it traveled the world. Buddhist monks in the 4th and 5th centuries BC are believed to have carried mangoes with them on their voyages to Malaya and eastern Asia! When the Portuguese began to operate water routes to and from India in the 16th century, the mango – both fruit and wood – reached the rest of the world.
As the world became aware of the qualities of mango wood, it began to be used in various industries. One such industry was the furniture industry. With the passage of time, mango wood tables, chairs and cabinets gained popularity. If Suren Space had been around in those days, mango wood furniture might have become a household name long ago!
Popularity of Mango Wood Furniture from India
‘Wood furniture’ is a term that encompasses a vast range of wooden furniture items. One of the most popular varieties of wooden furniture is mango wood furniture, for a number of reasons.
- Sustainability – Environmental protection is of utmost importance in today’s world. While wooden furniture is very attractive and useful, it is very important to choose wood that is easily available and not an endangered tree species. Mango trees take a comparatively shorter time to reach maturity (around 15 years), and once the fruit bearing age is over, can be used as raw material in the furniture industry. That is why furniture market leaders like Suren Space prefer eco-friendly, sustainable alternatives like mango wood.
- Affordability – Stylish furniture that is competitively priced – a dream come true? Suren Space’s extensive range of mango wood furniture is just that: beautifully designed, stylish and inexpensive.
