Not your mother's kitchen island. Positioned on locking caster wheels, the Matheson Kitchen Island is your mobile kitchen command center. Made from bleached plantation-cut mango wood, the Matheson features two removable baskets, two drawers with nickel drawer pulls and a bottom rack for storage. The surface is not food safe, so keep your favorite cutting board nearby. The mango wood used to build our furniture is the byproduct of commercial mango plantations. The most commercially sought-after mangoes grow in the early years of a mango tree's life, meaning trees are harvested and replanted shortly after peak fruit production while the wood is still young and strong. On the soft end of the scale for hardwoods, mango trees are susceptible to fungi in the sapwood, which yields a unique black color in the wood's naturally swirled grain pattern, lending itself perfectly to creating unique, hand-crafted furniture.
