For traditional settings to opulent interiors, wooden pieces are naturally grounding and feel right at home amongst busy patterns and motifs. A table setting with artisanal, hand-turned chargers and serving pieces is rich in texture and replete with old-world romance.
For minimalist or modern settings, adding natural wood elements can break up monochromatic schemes without overdoing it, lending the perfect touch of warmth to make a space feel welcoming. Inherently tactile and beautifully textural, hand-turned bowls and vessels make sculptural statement pieces in their own right and understated focal points for open shelves, countertops and coffee tables.
Mango wood is highly sustainable (hooray!) and renowned for its dense grain, making it an extremely durable hardwood that is as strong and hardwearing as oak! Its appearance and longevity depends on level of care. If you like a worn-in look, you can knock it about and revel in any acquired imperfections. If you prefer for natural pieces to remain as good as new, then following a few easy-care instructions will ensure they last for years to come:
Simply use a damp cloth to clean and dry immediately with a soft cloth —that’s all there is to it! No need for oil, as the wood is already treated with food-safe, water-based stains and lacquers. Also, never leave wood soaking in water, put in the microwave or in the dishwasher. Voilà!
Off the beaten path near the border between Spain and France lies the ancient riverside city of Bilbao, the heart of Basque Country. Steeped in culture, gastronomic renown and tradition (the local dialect pre-dates the Romance languages), this historic region has evolved into an equally modern well-spring of architecture, art and design. Our Bilbao collection celebrates this fabulous fusion of old and new, featuring artisanal mango wood pieces that naturally articulate this unique and beautiful balance of timeless elegance.
