The texture depends upon how the piece is finished.

This is solid mahogany flooring -- very dark with a reddish tint and harder than walnut:

You could be referring to Rubberwood, Hard Maple, Soft Maple, Alder or Hickory. Cherry also fits this description and it is made of 25% sapwood and 75% heartwood according to http://www.osbornewood.com/woodtypes.cfm.
