Mango Furniture AKA Babool

Mango Wood is a tropical hardwood from an evergreen tree, most of us relate the Mango Tree directly with Mango Fruit overlooking its versatile ability to be used in Furniture making.

As you are most likely aware the Mango Wood tree bears nutritious Mango fruit, it is highly sustainable and is allowed to grow until it bears fruit no more, once this stage of the tree’s life has been reached it is then cut down to be treated ready for use as timber.

Like Sheesham, Mango is also a very attractive hardwood it is very strong and durable however it is not as dense nor nearly as heavy as Sheesham which makes it much easier to maneuver or move around from time to time.

Here are some popular examples of our beautiful Mango Wood Furniture, from light to dark wood finishes including the all time classic range known as Dakota Mango Wood Furniture.

Sheesham Wood Vs Mango Wood. So which one do I choose?

Both of these Woods are hardwoods that are very long-lasting, durable and strong, with natural beautiful grain markings. However, Sheesham is most definitely more durable than Mango and the beautiful Wood grain variations are visibly clear to see this also represents a much higher grain variation and capacity.

Both of these materials are excellent for making solid wood furniture however as with all natural wood some pitting, knots and minor splits or cracks may be present in the wood, such naturally occuring defects may be filled with filler during the manufacturing process. Please keep this in mind before purchasing as such so called naturally occuring defects are to be expected and only considered to be part of, or add to the character of these beautiful furniture items.

Colour Of Finish & Overall.

What colour is Sheesham wood? Sheesham, also known as Indian rosewood, is a popular type of wood used in furniture making. It is usually a reddish-brown colour, but can vary depending on the tree it came from.

Sheesham wood is native to India and Pakistan, and has been used in furniture making for centuries. The wood is famous for its durability and strength, making it ideal for pieces that will see a lot of use.

Today, sheesham wood furniture is popular all over the world for its unique look. The warm colour of the wood makes it a popular choice for homes with a more rustic or traditional decorating style.

Overall Sheesham = Variable Wood grain with colour variations (2 tone appearance) May have speccles usually caused by limestone within the soil, gray flashes, other variable colours in the finish may also be present.

What colour is Mango wood? Mango is a beautiful, light-colored wood that ranges in colour from pale yellow to rich golden brown. The grain is typically straight and the texture is smooth, making it a popular choice for furniture and cabinetry.

Mango trees are native to India, where they have been cultivated for centuries. The wood is very strong and durable, making it an ideal choice for both indoor and outdoor furniture. Mango wood has a high density, which makes it resistant to warping and insect damage.

With regards to colour of finish no piece is never entirely the same as the next, hence we would always recomend viewing all images for products within the same range, colour of an item may be somewhere in between the colour of the entire collection of items shown. The colour of items may also appear different from one device to another, screen colour profile and brightness can also affect the colour you see on screen so please use image colours on screen as a guidline only. If you are trying to match existing furniture we would recommend making contact with us prior to purchase.


In a nutshell, both types of hardwood discussed above produce nothing but beautiful furniture, which one you should choose basically boils down to your own personal preference and decor.
