Any thoughts on this. Our furniture in Living Room is a brown Mahogany (Stickley). The Roland, Kawai, and Yamaha Mahogany all looks too Red/Cherry IMO. Rosewood from Yamaha looks like a better match.

I really like the way the black pianos look. The Piano will be in the same room as the Mahogany furniture, but not within 8-10 feet of any of our major furniture pieces.

Any thoughts on how a black piano would look in the same room with mahogany furniture?

Possibly looking now at the Yamaha S306/S308.

Thanks

I think that mixing woods is just fine. Mahogany usually has a reddish tinge to it and I think it looks good with black. A lot of Asian design mixes blacks and reddish woods. In my living room, I have a black wine cabinet and black book case next to my Mahogany piano. And in my family room, I have mahogany accents with more solid black furniture (TV entertainment center). I have had no complaints and think it looks pleasing.

I mainly did it because I couldn't find any furniture to match my already mahogany/reddish furniture. Therefore, I just did the complete opposite and chose black and black/espresso.

If you like it, that is all that matters!

I agree. Black mixes well with any dark wood furniture.

Black is the traditional piano color and goes with any decor, other furniture or wood finishes. However, this is mostly true for glossy "piano black". The matte-finish "satin black" on some Rolands wouldn't look as good. Also, be aware that glossy black shows dust and fingerprints badly. It takes some care to keep it looking nice.
