The ponderous magnificence of Victorian sideboards and half-testers has ceased to appeal to us, and mahogany itself has acquired from its associations a certain amount of opprobrium that it does not at all deserve, for it is a lovely wood, and it has many uses in the modern house. Some of these Mr. Lewis will describe this afternoon, as well as those of the newer woods that have lately come into vogue.
