Do you know what is the superiority of this International Concepts Shaker Style Bench?
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 reviewsCan t go wrong with International Concepts
This was a great purchase exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a sturdy six-foot bench to use every day. I have a small bay window area and this bench is almost wall to wall. It works as a window seat as well as a dining bench my small dining table is in the bay . I already have four International Concepts bookcases so I know the quality of their pieces. I looked locally for a six-foot bench without luck. I saw some on line but they were too expensive. The Amazon price is a great bargain, not to mention the speedy free shipping. This is a wonderful piece I will always have and enjoy.
