Durable and Resilient
Plastics and other materials can be weak and wear particularly easy, it doesn’t have the same efficiency as wood does. Wood is a natural resource and it is particularly hard, making it perfect for tables and chairs, where heavy things will be placed on it often. It lasts a very long time due to this fact too. When joined correctly, it should last a lifetime.

Gentle for the Environment
