Mango trees are best known for the succulent juicy fruits they produce, however mango wood is being discovered as a lovely richly-grained wood that works well for a variety of projects. A dense and relatively hard wearing wood it is very durable and requires little or no maintenance.
After some 20 years or so a mango tree ceases to bear fruit so the plantation growers cut down these trees and replant with new, maintaining fruit production. The cut down trees are thus a ready source for furniture production, an excellent example of re-usability and sustainability.
The Mango Range from Cumbria Oak comprises a variety of items for living and dining, from tables and chairs to cubist style shelving systems combining the warmth and subtle textures of the wood with modern designs suitable for today’s town or country living.
