Mahogany is a lustrous, reddish-brown hardwood native to the Americas, prized for its deep and rich colour. As a result of increasing trade between the New World and the Old during the eighteenth century, mahogany became especially popular in the production of fine European furniture, particularly because of its even, straight grain, and its relative lack of imperfections.
Mahogany, which darkens warmly over time and is rendered even more beautiful under polish, is one of the most common woods used in European furniture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and antique mahogany furniture, whether from the period of Louis XV, from Georgian England, or the Belle Époque—all of which are represented below in Mayfair Gallery’s collection—remains much sought after by collectors today.
