Rosewood is the rarest, finest wood of all. We carefully source the best species of rosewood available anywhere, allowing us to lend each piece a certain character that exudes boldness, strength, and unparalleled elegance.
It belongs to the genus, Dalbergia Sissoo genus, which stands for qualities such as power and longevity. This genus of rosewood is akin to the Brazilian kind, and both these types are way better than the one from India, basically because of the number of pores in it.
Rosewood incorporates the most stunning heartwood, covering shades of golden orange to greenish-black. Heartwood can be found intermingled among shadier layers in either an interlocked or straight pattern, depicting a stunning ribbon. It is also characterized by the magnificent heartwood, varying in hue from golden, orange, red and deep brown to green and black. The heartwood is interspersed with darker streaks in a straight or sometimes a narrow interlocked pattern, giving off an almost ribbon-like appearance.
In contrast to other woods, rosewood has resistance when it comes to root diseases. In fact, this immunity slows down decay and termite attacks. This means that it does not need any preservative treatment. In this way, consumers get to enjoy their antique rosewood furniture.
