Mango wood is one of the most desirable materials for home furniture and wood furniture – whether you’re looking for dining sets, consoles or bookcases. Mango wood has a deep, luxurious hue which is long lasting and continues to deepen with age. Its tough exterior is highly resilient to knocks and scratches, and is an ideal material for family homes. Check out some of our top picks after the jump.
When it comes to picking timeless pieces of furniture for the living room, you can’t go wrong with mango wood – its tough, hardy exterior and deep, dark tones are perfectly suited for contemporary style furnishings. Storage and display units, like bookcases, shelving and stand alone units look striking in bold, simple shapes with chunky shelves and minimal blocks. Abstract shapes can add pizazz and personality when coupled with this luxurious material, with asymmetric shelf units that can create stunning visual impact in any space. To really go all out, you can opt for full scale display units in bold geometric shapes, which add both practical display and storage space, as well as creating an artistic visual feature for your home.
Another must have for the living room is a striking coffee table, that can form the centre of a room, as well as making it an inviting place to be. A mango wood coffee table looks both luxurious and cosy, with simple shapes that can work well with any style of furnishing, from vintage and retro styles, to edgy modernism. A useful alternative to coffee tables is a nest of tables, which provides a handy range of different size options, perfect to dot around the home, or create a graduated display.
Mango wood can also be versatile in the dining room. A simple but well-made solid wood dining table can set the tone for your dining space, with an unfussy but attractive dining table that can accommodate a large number of guests – ideal if you love to have people around. As well as dining tables, another useful part of a dining room is the side table or console table – perfect for storing dining accoutrements, such as cutlery or drinks. Opt for a well sized console table, with additional drawer space – to give you maximum versatile space to play.
As well as the home, mango wood furniture works well in home office spaces too. From bookcases to cd racks, mango wood furnishing is a great all round material to add versatility and character.
