The Beauty of Nature
For the Steinway Crown Jewels, our expert have acquired some of the most beautiful, impressive and valuable woods found on earth. In the selection process, factors like the wood’s expression, grain and colouration were as important as adherence to international sustainability regulations.

Mahogany Pommele and Indian Apple are also available to embellish the upright pianos with their unique power of expression.
