Customers tend to rely on qualities like the beauty of design, functionality, appearance, attractive grain, colour and strength when it comes to furniture products. Indoor furniture must look beautiful and remain functional, while outdoor furniture and playground equipment must endure harsh climatic conditions and exposure to insects, dust, and moisture. Most of the Canadian wood species available in India are light in colour as compared with traditional species used by Indian craftsmen. This allows them high versatility as they can be coated with clear or light lacquers to maintain their lustrous sheen, or stained to resemble other darker varieties. The species listed below have the required versatility and attributes to meet the challenge in both indoor and outdoor environments.
