Midlands UK (PRWEB UK) 30 September 2013
Mango Hardwood is an up and coming trend for use in all sorts of indoor furniture for many different markets.
On a recent buying trip in Northern Thailand, The Garden Furniture Centre have started promoting this trend in their own catalogue with a beautiful range of Ornamental Furniture, hand carved from Mango Trees.
This includes a variety of Stools and Side Tables carved in a variety of styles from One and Two Turn Tables to Elephant Stools and Tables in an S-Shaped design.
Mango Hardwood is considered eco-friendly due to the fact that the trees are only harvested for use in furniture when they have reached the end of the use of their useful, fruit-bearing life. By doing this the crafts-people in Thailand are helping to reduce the deforestation of other, more endangered species of wood.
From a buyer's point of view this timber looks beautiful - the presence of Spalting gives it an eye-catching, kaleidoscope of colours from the golden-brown heartwood that contrasts with the lighter, yellow coloured outer wood with occasional splashes of red in some pieces as well.
Jon Haimes, Director of the company, said, 'We've had a selection of hardwood side tables and stools in our range for a while but these have needed updating. When I saw the Mango Hardwood carvings I jumped at the chance to introduce them to a Western Market due to their instant, eye-catching appeal and the high quality of the craftsmanship."
The full range can be seen in The Garden Furniture Centres range of Hand Crafted Wooden Garden Ornaments shown below.
