These standards relate to decorative materials and different furniture categories. Some of them are required to be produced from the production technology, and some are standardized from the materials, and their importance is self-evident. For example, “Redwood” (GB/T 18107-2017) is regarded as the standard of the mahogany industry, and the category of redwood species determines the direction of the development of the entire industry.
