The Majestic "Rain Tree" - Suar
Suar wood tree, also known as Albizia Saman or Monkeypod, is a large tropical rain tree that can grow up to heights of 25m. Characterized by its umbrella canopy, the tree naturally creates an insulated, cool climate underneath its thick, leafy branches. Due to its crisscrossed interlocking grains, Suar wood is resistant to cracking from wood movement and is highly sought-after for its robustness. Moderately heavy but extremely strong, Suar wood is highly resistant to decay and dry-wood termites. These characteristics make Suar wood highly favourable in fine furniture making compared to other woods.
When considering its hardiness and striking wood grains, Suar wood makes a fitting choice for sizeable table tops like conference tables and dining tables. However, it is not limited to colossal table tops as its beautiful wood figure makes it befitting as an exquisite centrepiece in any working or living space.
SUAR WOOD CARE
While Suar wood’s appealing finish is attractive to artisans and builders, its special grain texture makes it particularly suited for carving and an ideal choice for designer tables. The wood does an incredible job at retaining moisture and not drying out, especially when it is properly taken care of. Herman Furniture makes certain that our Suar wood is of top quality and only requires basic maintenance (water and mild soap) to maintain its grandeur.
