There’s a reason US General Andrew Jackson garnered the nickname ‘Old Hickory’. Hickory is one of the hardest and hardiest of wood species and was once the go-to choice for axe handles, chairs, ladder rungs, wagon spokes, and a variety of sports equipment such as tennis rackets, hockey sticks, skis and fishing rods (Wood Magazine). Technology advances in the 20th and 21st century has meant that synthetic materials are now used in the manufacture of most of these products. Hickory, however, remains a popular choice for furniture and wood flooring. Mirage features 16 beautifully durable hickory products over 4 collections: Admiration, Herringbone, Imagine, and Natural.
