MANGO OR SHEESHAM?
Which wood is suitable for you.
When browsing our store you will notice we stock two types of wooden furniture,
the following information has been provided to assist you in deciding and choosing which wood type is more suitable for your needs.
Sheesham is a beautiful Indian Rosewood, it is found in India where most trees are allowed to grow for as long as 25 years during which they can reach upto a staggering 30 meters tall, the main tree trunk can also reach around 1.5 meters in width!
The wood produced by these trees is very dense, heavy and very strong this makes it perfect for manufacturing strong and durable real solid wood furniture, the wood grain and colour variations makes each piece even more so unique, this furniture is very hardwearing which if cared for correctly can last the owner many years to come.
Due to the variation in wood grains each piece of Sheesham Wood Furniture is truelly unique in its own way this means one piece will never be exactly the same as another giving it it’s own unique appearance and character.
Here are just a few examples of our Jali Sheesham Wood Furniture finished in the stunning and very popular Honey Colour stained finish.
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 nomore, once this stage of a Mango trees life has been reached the tree is then cut down to be used for timber.
Like Sheesham Wood, Mango Wood 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 is ideal if you wish to be able to easily move your Furniture from time to time.
Here also are a few examples of our Dark Walnut Brown stain finished Dakota Mango Wood Furniture.
Sheesham Wood Vs Mango Wood. So which one do I choose?
Both of these woods are hardwoods which are very strong, durable with natural and beautiful markings. However, if you want a smooth finished wood with natural marking in a smooth colour, sheesham wood may be your choice.
Sheesham wood is more durable than Mango and has a much higher grain capacity, the overall texture of a stained finish on Sheesham wood is somewhat more intense than compared to Mango Wood however as previously mentioned Mango is still very strong yet lightweight compared to Sheesham it is therefore much easier to manouver and move around.
