Give your dinner guests plenty of space with the Weston Home Clifford Dining Table with Extension Leaf. This dining table is constructed of engineered wood and rubberwood with ash veneers. A warm walnut finish highlights the distinctive wood grain pattern. The geometric trestle base and hourglass design on the tabletop give it a modern look. It will seat six to eight people comfortably.
The Beauty and Benefits of Rubberwood
Hailing from the maple family of trees, the rubber tree is used in the manufacture of high-end furniture. This durable Asian hardwood is valued for its dense grain, minimal shrinkage, attractive color, 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.
A Note About Engineered Wood
Often referred to as MDF, which stands for medium density fiberboard, this particular type of engineered wood is made of compressed wood fibers and has several benefits, including affordability, consistency, durability, and resistance to warping.
