All our solid teak furniture is handmade by craftsmen from recycled teak. The teak is taken mainly from old houses and bridges that are being demolished to make way for new.

Traditional and Contemporary Styled Solid Teak Furniture
We only produce traditional and contemporary solid teak furniture at our factories in Burma.Each piece is unique and not mass produced, our furniture has a timeless elegance and will last a lifetime. We ship our furniture from Burma to Hua Hin each and every week of the year.

A Common Myth
Many companies stress the age of their teak and use this factor in justifying price. All reclaimed teak is old, when you consider the trees growing life, then its second life as part of a construction, your reclaimed teak will always be around 80 to 120 years old. We offer a solid range of teak furniture at a very fair price, guaranteed.
Rubberwood/Parawood/MDF/Particle Boards/Veneers

Indonesian and Malaysian Teak.

None of these materials are used in the manufacture of our furniture. These materials
soon lose their showroom lustre and won't stand the test of time.

The product we offer is not competing with the lower priced imitations, our furniture is suitable for heavy use and will last a lifetime. Many hotels, restaurants and bars have our furniture in daily use, we have a large portfolio available upon request.

Furniture should be used and admired, choosing a lower priced option will often leave you feeling cheated in both these aspects.

"if we wouldn't have it in our home rest assured
we wouldn't send it to yours"

 

Materials

Materials are the backbone of our designs. Only the best is used: Burmese reclaimed teak; Italian leather of the highest quality; as well as a plethora of other materials, both modern and classical, used in interesting and ingenious ways.

Italian aniline leather

Leather is imported directly from Italy and is a natural grain Grade 'A' leather. The cushion pads are flame retardant and comply with the relevant EU standards. We use a rigid hardwood frame which was originally designed for the UK market, which we still supply. We also export to USA, Canada, Japan and Korea. We can make the sofa or side chair to your specifications, with minimal additional cost.

Whats available out there ?

The majority of leather available in South East Asia has it's origins in China, the leather is often described as 'easy clean' The leather is artificially embellished top grain veneer. Many sofas also contain imitation leather especially on sofa backs and below the cushion/seat line. The product we offer is not competing with the lower priced imitations, our furniture is suitable for heavy use and will last for many years, we also have our sofas and chairs in daily use in hotels, restaurants and bars. We meet many customers who admit to 'banning' their more robust friends from using relatively new sofa's and chairs. Furniture should be used and admired, choosing a lower priced option will often leave you feeling cheated in both these aspects.

Sometimes we find old teak logs, these were discovered in a dry riverbed. These logs were turned into teak flooring and installed at a hotel in the UK.

We source most of our teak from old colonial houses which were awaiting demolition. The teak and parts of old buildings come in all shapes and sizes, we try to recycle everything in the manufacture of our furniture.
