Cypress is nicknamed as the “eternal wood”. Cypress has a strong tolerance to environmental elements and has been known as the world’s ‘wood of choice’ for thousands of years. Very few woods match the properties of cypress when it comes to sturdiness and strength. Cypress wood can be easily identified by its handsome, straight grain that portrays a gorgeous array of colors. This unmatchable beauty is enhanced by life long durability. Cypress contains a naturally occurring chemical called Cypressine that preserves and protects it from decay and insects. Because no harsh chemicals are needed to protect the wood, our products are Eco-Friendly and allow Cypress Moon to be labeled as a Green Furniture Company! In addition, cypress has little tendency to warp, twist, or cup. It even matches up to teak wood in outdoor performance, yet cost sometimes 10 times less. Because of its beauty, natural durability, and broad versatility, cypress’ popularity continues today!
