Satinwood is found in India and Sri Lanka. It has a rich golden colour and an almost reflective sheen. Satinwood is traditionally used for high quality furniture.
Goncalo Alves (aka Tigerwood) is a hardwood with a dramatic, contrasting colour scheme, that some compare to rosewood. While the sapwood is very light in color, the heartwood is a sombre brown with dark streaks that give it a unique look. The wood’s colour deepens with exposure and age and even the plainer-looking wood has a natural lustre.
Georgian era was a period in British history dating from 1714-1837, the Georgian era after the Hanoverian kings George I, George II, George III and George IV.
