Example of Kingwood

Kingwood is a rich brown colour with purplish tones. It was used as a veneer or for parquetry decoration, particularly in France.

Often confused with Rosewood, this lighter, more orangey wood from the same species can share a lot of similar aesthetic attributes to Rosewood. It has a defined grain with darker brown and black patterned outlines contrasting against a lighter background.

Kingwood is a native wood of Brazil, sourced from the Dalbergia Cearensis species of tree.
