Mahogany is a darker reddish brown wood, rich in color. It lends itself to more classic spaces with darker furniture and trim, and darker floors. It makes a great desk in a home library, or a table in more formal dining spaces. The grain is straighter and more uniform than in the other wood species. Mahogany is more expensive to source as it typically comes from more tropical climates. Mahogany is very heavy, hard, and durable.
