Satinwood at Patrick Sandberg Antiques

Satinwood became popular in the latter part of the 18th century. During the Hepplewhite style revival of the mid-Victorian period, it became popular again.  The satinwood by this time was a deep orange colour. It was used for veneers; inlaid decoration and the pale colour made it suitable for painting. 
Satinwood (Ceylon Satinwood) is a native of Southern India and Sri Lanka and has an illuminating, shimmery yellow/ gold appearance. It was more commonly used in combination with Coromandel to create a dramatic contrast.
