Parawood, also known as Rubberwood, is considered to be environmentally sound as it uses plantation trees that have been felled at the end of their cycle of latex production and new trees are grown. The wood, therefore, is harvested from a renewable source. Parawood s latex production begins when it is about five or six years old and continues until it is about 25 to 30 years. These trees grow to about 75 feet-80 feet high and are extensively used for making furniture. These trees are native to Central America, India and Indonesia.

Customer reviewsGreat design, sturdily built, easy to finish.
I liked the first one enough that I bought a second one for another room about a year later. I ve been using the first one for about two years and it shows no sign of getting wobbly. They re well constructed. The stools were easy to finish. I had to do some sanding. Some parts needed more work that others but nothing I wouldn t expect in unfinished furniture. Don t know what kind of wood these are made of but I saturated them with several applications of Danish oil and they look great. Great design and proportions--the seat is a comfortable size. It is scooped but only slightly. It isn t obvious unless you look at it carefully but it is scooped enough to make me happy. The legs have screws at each of the joints but it s done in a way that the screws are hidden.
