Many people come to Bali specifically to purchase furnishings and accessories for their homes.

Much of this stylish, high-quality furniture is designed in-house; it is often custom made and is very much in demand by five-star hotels.

Overall, the concept blends Oriental, tropical and minimalist design. Many of the traditional furniture designs are Dutch inspired Javanese, enhanced with whimsical charm and often embellished with intricate hand carvings of flowers and birds. The teak timber comes from Java, from youngish trees 20-30 years old. The product of mature trees is rare, expensive and environmentally unacceptable as it is not a sustainable resource.

However, some of our rustic pieces that have been fashioned from old teak planks salvaged from demolished buildings of the Dutch Colonial era. The natural colour of teakwood is a richly grained golden brown, but it can also be tinted by applications of oil, or stained to suit the distressed patina and heavier antique style. One of the beneficial properties of genuine teak is that it is resistant to termites.

‘Christophoras’ is an extraordinarily beautiful, richly grained, teak dining table, which focuses on the natural splendour of the material through the craftsmanship of a solid top fashioned from a single piece of wood. The table’s well-balanced, simple yet sophisticated design combines sensuality, proportion and exotic contours, enhanced by masterful joinery. This product is an exquisite piece of furniture that is durable, enduring and conceived to become vintage.

Please browse our catalogue of teakwood antique and antique style furniture and accessories, ranging from rustic tables, chairs and benches created from tree roots, as well as tree stump stools, to more classic fine dining styles. Each one of these cherished pieces has a warm presence and a relaxed beauty that would complement anyone’s home.
