This 30th Anniversary edition of my queen size Anniversary Bed has a beautiful sunburst veneer pattern of African Mahogany (Khaya) on its head and foot board. The curly figure of the Khaya veneer creates a stunning look. The head and foot board's top edge glow with a band of Yellowheart wood and a thin line of Yellowheart adds a contrasting boarder between the face veneers and the leg structure.
African Mahogany is a common name for a variety of species of trees in the mahogany family, native to tropical Africa and Madagascar. It is a pale reddish brown in color, relatively hard, and has open pores. It is suitable for exterior use, but in turn an excellent choice for furniture due to the attractive sheen of its surface when finished.
A tropical hardwood harvested in Brazil, yellowheart has a natural, fairly bright yellow coloring which makes it an interesting accent wood.
