Cherry is one of the hardest woods and has the highest density, therefore it withstands years of use and keeps its color and finish. A cherry wood table is a nice addition to any space, from an occasional furnishing or a cocktail table to a full sized cherry wood table for a dining room.

A cherry wood table can bring warmth to any room and may come in many different styles from classic to contemporary. Cherry as a finish can range from a light shade to a deep burgundy finish. In addition, a cherry wood table generally features a glossy shine which brings out the natural beauty in the wood grain.
