DecoTeak® unique furniture benches have been manufactured out of a combination of recycled Indonesia fishing boats and solid teak wood. The benches can be used either indoors or outdoors as accent pieces, display, or functional benches. The combination of rustic recycled boat wood and finished solid teak give the benches a modern contemporary feel that will accent both modern, traditional, transitional, or rustic decors. Use these indoor outdoor teak and recycled boat wood benches in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room, hallway, patio, or garden. Since they are made of both authentic fishing boat wood, and teak wood they will weather the elements.
Each DecoTeak® piece is unique and handcrafted by our village craftsmen. No two pieces are identical in color, or wood. Each bench is manufactured from recycled boat wood that derive from boats washed ashore during the Tsunami, or older boats that would normally be destined for firewood or the junk yard. We reclaim these old fishing boats and utilize the wood to make modern furniture pieces of our own design. In Asia traditional fishing boats are multi colored and the pride of the family that owns them. Each piece of furniture retains the original coloring of the boat it is made from and will vary in color from piece to piece. No two benches are identical, and each are a work of art in themselves.
Every piece of DecoTeak® recycled boat wood furniture will bear the personality and characteristics of the boat from which it was manufactured by our craftsment in Indonesia. The boat wood is processed but we retain the rustic feel and nature to it. The boat wood will be rough to the touch, and might include nail holes, non-structural cracks, and other roghness as found in the original boat material. Although these products could be used in the shower, we do not recommend them as shower benches or stools due to the roughness of the wood surface. However they are ideal as general seating when wearing clothes and the roughness will not interfere with the recycled teak and reclaimed boat wood functionality or comfort.
