What is Parawood?
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.
Scientific Name: Hevea Brasiliensis
Density: 7+ (Birch: 7, Ash: 8)
Strength Group: B6 (same group as maple)
Who is International Concepts?
International Concepts was founded in 1979 as a manufacturer of ready-to-finish furniture. As a 30+ year old company International Concepts has greatly evolved into becoming a leading supplier of both finished and unfinished furniture throughout the U.S. with one mission in mind. Offer the most beautiful, quality home furnishings at a tremendous value. We are based in Thomasville, N.C. (a neighboring city to High Point, NC, the city known and widely recognized as being ‘the furniture capital of the world’), where we employ 200 dedicated North Carolinians.
Parawood is durable, strong, tough and resilient. If well-cared for, it will last for many years.
You can use the same methods to clean your parawood furniture that you use to clean furniture made from any other wood. Once a year, you should wash it with a solution of soap and water, taking care to dry it thoroughly with a clean cloth; standing water is the enemy of any furniture finish.
Can be bought unfinished or finished. Easy to stain – paint to your own style.
Plantation grown to promote ecological balance. For every tree cut, a new tree is planted as a replacement, harmoniously maintaining natural balance.
Very cute and sturdy table – one person assembly!One person can put this together alone. It is very sturdy and arrived in perfect shape – no defects at all. Perfect size for my small space. My only disappointment and the reason I took off one star is, the finish is pretty “soft”… I slid a cardboard box across the table and it left marks. That was disappointing, but for the price I can’t complain too much, you can only see the marks up close.
Perfect SizeGreat little table for our breakfast nook. I stained it. The only downside is that there were a few nail holes filled with wood putty that didn’t stain well but if you are just painting this table, it would be fine.

Good table, if it arrives without damageI ordered 2 tables. One arrived perfect. The other one had a crack in the pedestal near the screw receptacle. It is not visible once you assemble the table, but the crack makes that table weak. Looks like it may fall off after some use. Assembly for that table top was little harder because the screw did not line up with the receptacle due to the crack.There is no option to contact seller. The only option is to return the whole table. It is not easy to pack it all up and return it. I wish there was some way they could just replace the part that is defective. It will be a waste to send the whole table back and get a new one shipped to me.I will wait to see if I can contact the seller before returning it.

Nice quality, raw woodI love this little table as it is a perfect size and easy to assemble. I chose to just wax the bottom and paint the top and spray with polyurethane to seal. Also, I added small 1″ wheels to the bottom that already had the threads to screw them in.
Great for small areaThe drop leaves are easy to use & I only need one up most of the time. Great for playing cards. The center pedestal is nice for knees not bumping on a 4 legged table. Very sturdy even for elbows on the table. This gets daily use & price point perfect.I would buy again.
QualityThe table is basically what I expected, a little disappointed in the painting quality though. You might say someone did a rush job on the table. I am very satisfied otherwise !

Great Buy!This arrived as expected and packaged very well. The instructions were clear and the table easy to assemble. The color of the table top (Cinnamon) was a bit lighter than expected – so in hindsight I should have purchased the unfinished table. I did not have any leveling issues with the drop leaf. The table is very nice. I would purchase it again.
