Mexican Style Pine Sideboards
Mexican Style Pine Sideboards is an ideal way to bring natural materials into your interior design. This exotic type of pine is grown in many countries including Mexico, the United States, Brazil and Argentina. These trees grow in thick clumps that produce beautiful, bold, black, dark wood. The wood is so dense it makes the pine trees almost impossible to work. The hard work and slow growth are what has made it such an attractive material for furniture and flooring.
Because of the high price of lumber in these countries, most furniture makers simply use chips or scraps from this rich forest. Although chip wood can be useful in building machinery, it takes away from the natural beauty of each piece. These pieces are usually not painted or stained, although there are several styles of finishes available to add a unique touch to your Mexican Style Pine Sideboards.
Corona Sideboards is the latest styles in Mexican furniture design. Similar to the "corona" fixture found in old Mexican colonial architecture, the corona-shaped sideboard is formed by the crossing of two beams. The natural light shines through the wood as it catches the light from the surrounding rooms. The unique feature of corona-sideboards is that the panels are perfectly square and the full board spans across the length of the entire board.
Each Mexican-style sideboard is uniquely shaped because the wood is not from the same tree. Some are straight with the corners meeting in a V-shape, while others are slightly twisted. Some are slanted while some are even. The wood comes in different colors such as light brown or rich mahogany and is considered to be among one of the hardest types of wood grown.
These unique sideboards are an excellent choice for any room of your home. They blend in well with traditional Mexican decorations and are just as at home in a formal dining room or a cozy family room as they are in your living room or game room. These boards can be made with a variety of wood stains including mahogany, espresso, cherry and teak. They also come in a wide variety of colors such as black, red, blue, and pink. The unique spicing used on each board will help to make them stand out from traditional sideboards.
Although the traditional Mexican style pine sideboards are no longer made, you can still find some beautiful reproductions of this popular furniture. Many furniture dealers offer Mexican-style sideboards made with beautiful cedar. These reproductions have a realistic texture and are available in beautiful shades of brown and gold. You will love how much character these pieces have and how easy they are to furnish with matching pieces.
