Crafted in and imported from Indonesia – the home of reclaimed teak furniture.
There are over 17,000 islands across Indonesia where teak was traditionally very widely used for house and boat building. In recent years a preference has developed for other building materials meaning that there is an abundance of reclaimed teak available in many different forms.
Superb Craftsmanship in our Reclaimed Teak Furniture
This fantastic Boat Bench is an ingenious example of reclaimed teak furniture. Every one sold is built to order so you are buying something totally bespoke.
The craftsmanship is superb. The original integrity of the boat as a functional working tool has been cleverly modified to create a practical and original seating area.
Look closely at the supports on the bottom and you’ll see that individual pieces of reclaimed teak wood have been cut and shaped to provide a stable platform to keep the bench level.
The seats and table have been incorporated into the original framework of the boat leaving flat panels behind each seat that are perfect for displaying flowers, ornaments, etc.
The dense, oily qualities of the wood make it perfect for outdoor furniture.
Do your bit for the environment with Reclaimed Teak Furniture …
Millions of people across Indonesia and many different species of plant and animal rely heavily on forests for their livelihood. Deforestation is a major issue here. So by re-using teak that has been cut years ago we are recycling the old and preserving the new.
In years to come these pieces will have antique status – in fact many probably already have – so not only is it a bench but also an heirloom for the future.
And let’s face it not everyone can say they own an old Indonesian fishing boat that has been converted into a bench.What a talking point.
