Wood is the foundation of furniture construction. And there are two types of wood used in making these fine stuff for your Crown Asia house and lot for sale! Such wood are the solid wood, that comprises both softwood and hardwood wherein the former comes from lifeform trees called gymnosperms that normally stay green all throughout the year (they do not shed their leaves), while the latter comes from deciduous trees (denser wood whose leaves are shredded every year).
