There are pieces of furniture that simply light up any room they are placed in, particularly those that are custom-made for the house they are in. The only problem here is that pieces like this could be rather expensive, and after some time begin to look rather outdated and obviously weathered from use. Handcrafted pieces like the Gia 5-piece counter dining set, however, are able to withstand the test of time and stay beautiful and tasteful in design.
The Gia 5-piece dining set is amazing in that it could fit in almost any dining area while providing comfortable dining for 4 people. This set is painstakingly crafted with Mindy veneers hand laid in a stunning Reverse Diamond Match, and it really is no wonder if it becomes more of a conversation piece than anything else in the room with it, as guests are sure to notice how it stands out.
The table is designed with 2 shelves that are not only quite handy but were also intentionally built as such to provide additional stability and strength to the table itself. It is, after all, a table, and regardless if it is used for full meals or just snacks and coffee with guests, it is always a great idea to have a sturdy table that will not rock no matter what you put on it.
The stylish wooden chairs that come with this set were built to look good and feel good, and on top of that, stay that way for a very long time. Chairs with long legs are typically not expected to last long as this design is often the best example of strength being sacrificed for style. The beautiful wooden chairs that come with the Gia 5-piece counter dining set, however, will not only seat people comfortably, they will also stay firm and comfortable for the years to come, thanks to being made of rubberwood.
Is Rubberwood Ideal as Furniture Material?
Rubberwood is fast becoming a favorite for both furniture makers and buyers alike, as the material is being recognized not just for its high durability, but also for its affordability as a furniture material. Some of the known benefits of rubberwood include:
- Fairly fire resistant
- High scratch resistance
- High resistance to cracks and shrinkage
- Fairly flexible (but not elastic, as the name might suggest)
- Darkens with age (develops a beautiful tone after some time)
- Retains staining patterns well (good for water sealing)
- Janka hardness rating of 995 lbf (4,426 N)
- Environment-friendly/highly sustainable
Timeless Style and Class You Need to Experience
Being made of rubberwood, some might think that the Gia 5-piece dining set might also be prone to the disadvantages associated with the use of this particular furniture wood. The truth of the matter is, the issues associated with rubberwood are also benefits just waiting to be realized.
High Moisture Absorbency
A common misgiving about using rubberwood is the fact that it readily absorbs water, making it less than ideal as outdoor furniture. This property, however, also makes rubberwood retain stains and seals very well, including water seals. Once it absorbs whatever stain is preferred along with a proper water seal, rubberwood furniture becomes elegant and highly resistant to moisture damage.
Anyone who has ever gone around shopping for furniture would know that hardwood is quite expensive. Furniture made of hardwood might be among the sturdiest ever built, but they are also among the pricier ones, which is more than enough to make many buyers think twice. Despite not being a hardwood, rubberwood is moderately hard, and with proper treatment and finishing, becomes surprisingly sturdy for something so light. On top of that, the density of rubberwood is highly ideal for machining, making it an ideal wood of choice for artistic creations.
Tendency to Change Color
Rubberwood is known to change tinge when exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun over time. Many believe this will make any furniture made with it look old in no time at all. In the hands of people who know how to make use of this fact, furniture made of rubberwood becomes a canvas for artistic use with the sun. The change in tone and tinge, done properly, will give it a new character and make it appear like a completely different set, with little to no additional cost.
