EAST INDIAN ROSEWOOD
Originating from South Asia, the East Indies, and Sri Lanka, this precious tobacco-colored wood with thick veins stands out for its individual grain and a warm, deep lustre
Kewazinga Bubinga is a highly desirable wood from West Africa. Its unique, richly contrasting grain and soft, bright sheen give this piano a wonderful lightness and irresistible charm.
Koa wood is unique to Hawaii and is not found anywhere else in the world. The color can range from reds to chocolate browns. Koa has a fine grain with a medium-coarse texture, but it is the figuring that sets Koa into a class of it's own.
This very rare precious wood from Sulawesi has a fascinating texture with a deep black color and a reddish-brown that pulses with breathtaking power.
Tiger mahogany, one of the most beautiful variants of exotic mahogany, is known for its striped appearance. Its reddish-brown finish gives it a rich and handsome look.

Also known as Pau Ferro in Brazil, Santos Rosewood has a wide variance in color ranging from light tobacco to dark Violet.
Walnut wood is warm and rich in color. A dense, fine-grained hardwood, Walnut is perfect for a timeless look.
Figured Sycamore is a maple by genetic makeup and is among the most valuable native broad-leafed trees in Europe.
Ziricote is native to Central America and the color ranges from medium to dark brown with a striking pale yellow sapwood that shines through the bold dark color of the wood.

Your STEINWAY & SONS piano can be the perfect expression of you. Whether it's a subtle difference, such as the all-silver hardware of the STERLING STEINWAY, or a more eye-catching statement, such as a red POPS STEINWAY, we invite you to find a SPECIAL COLLECTIONS STEINWAY piano that best suits your home and your style.
STEINWAY & SONS has collaborated with some of the most notable artists and designers of our time to create a special series of pianos that reimagine what uncompromised expression looks like. Custom built at our STEINWAY & SONS New York and Hamburg factories, our limited editions combine classic STEINWAY craftsmanship, with inspired and expressive designs — making each LIMITED EDITION STEINWAY both a majestic musical instrument and a completely unique work of art.
STEINWAY & SONS upright pianos are handcrafted to the highest standard of quality in the same factory as our grands, using the same materials, techniques, conditioning processes and craftsmen. The only difference is that they’re built in the “vertical department,” where those same processes are vertically oriented. The result is the world’s finest upright, living up to the STEINWAY & SONS name in every respect.
