Handmade and hand-finished by skilled artisans in India, the Montego Dining Collection is certain to elicit the envy of your dinner guests. The table and chairs are crafted entirely from solid Mango wood and uses time-honored construction techniques to ensure lasting quality. Styled with bold symmetry and generous proportions, the dining table is truly a conversation piece--with its large surface, dovetailed table corners and brace style legs. The table is flanked by slat back chairs with a simple inset pattern that enhances its bold character. Open chair backs provide a refreshing contrast to the bold table but mirror the level of back support found in solid seat backs. Solid wood chairs feature hand-applied saddle carvings that provide a surprisingly comfortable seat, the finishing touch for the Montego Set.
Mango is a beautiful hardwood that has been used throughout Southeast Asia for decades and is now becoming popular in the West due to its far greater sustainability over popular hardwoods such as oak or teak. Primarily used in agriculture, a mango tree stops producing quality fruit after about twenty years and needs to be cut down. Harvesting the wood completes nature's natural cycle without depleting the world's forests. Mango wood is a hard, dense wood, displaying color properties unlike most other woods, with green, brown and yellow hues.
