|Cottage Tables are made from parawood. Rubberwood is wood from the Pará rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis), often
called the rubber tree. Rubberwood, also called parawood in Thailand, is used in high-end furniture as it is valued
for its dense grain, attractive colour, minimal shrinkage, and acceptance of different finishes. It is also prized as
an "environmentally friendly" wood, as it makes use of trees that have been cut down at the end of their
latex-producing cycle. The older practice was to burn the "useless" tree.
