Ohh...didn't see you're from France. Acajou = Mahogany. I thought there was some new type of wood out there that resembled mahogany.

You're right.

Steve, Curlykoa owner, say : KAYA. African wood. Mahogany family.

That is beautiful in it's simplicity, proving that a lot of "bling" is not necessary when the craftsmanship and design speak for themselves! I enjoy browsing your website and have gained considerable construction knowledge from it, even if Google translation isn't the best!
