Sheesham or Mango? | Wood Types | Customer Information Page

Whilst browsing our store you will notice we stock two types of real wood furniture,

Sheesham Furniture & Mango Furniture

The following information has been provided to help you decide and choose which wood is suitable for you.

Let's start off with 

Sheesham Furniture.

This wood is a very dense Indian Rosewood, it is found in India and most trees are allowed to grow for up to 25 years during which they can reach up to a staggering 30 meters tall, the main 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 beautiful, solid, strong and durable furniture which if cared for correctly can last the owner many years to come.

Due to the variation in wood grains each piece of is truly unique in its own way this means one piece will never be exactly the same as another giving it its own unique and distinctive appearance in character.

Here are just a few examples of our Jali Sheesham Furniture finished in the stunning and very popular Honey Colour stained finish.

Mango Furniture.

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 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 or Mango. 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 is more durable than Mango and has a much higher grain capacity, the overall texture of a stained finish on Sheesham is somewhat more intense than compared to Mango however as previously mentioned this is still a very strong timber yet lightweight compared to Sheesham it is therefore much easier to manoeuvre and move around.

FYI. Sheesham is also known as Indian Rosewood, Mango is also known as Babul.
