Rosewood furniture is not to everyone's taste but if someone likes it, he or she would probably want to decorate the home in the same style. As a result the cost can be prohibitive for a salary earner. There are several types of rosewood: yellow (huanghuali), the rare zitan (red sandalwood) and red (hongsuanzhi). The price also differs according to source and rarity. The price of different rosewood furniture depends on other raw materials used and the skill of the carpenter.
