Southern Pine is what we use for our standard softwood. This wood has tons of knicks, knots, cracks and imperfections. We can’t control the amount of knots or imperfections this wood has, as it is a natural part of its nature. These woods are classified as a softwood because they tend to dent and scratch easier than hardwoods (obviously). They also tend to move more throughout seasons, so keeping a consistent humidity in your home will help it last for years to come! Budget friendly, but gorgeous!
Hardwoods are a generational piece. Although more expensive, it may be the last table you purchase. The wood itself is more scratch and dent resistant which helps keep its natural beauty over time. and is more stable through humidity changes and seasons.
