The term “mahogany” is thrown around a lot, much like cedar, but we only use it to describe authentic mahogany.

Typically found in Central and South America, we’ve sourced our mahogany from quality farms in Fiji. This equally magnificent mahogany has a more varied grain pattern because of the younger tree ages, but it is an equally beautiful and durable wood that would enhance the exterior or interior of any building—plus, it is reasonably priced compared to the rarer Latin American or Honduran varieties.
