DecoTeak® unique coffee tables, accent tables, and end tables are made out of salvaged recycled reclaimed boatwood. The wood is naturally aged from actual use in the water with the personality of the original wood complete with cracks, holes, nail holes that give these pieces their unique personality. No two products are ever the same in color, and reflect the original materials that the pieces came from. Fishing boats in Indonesia are often owned by individual families. They can range in size from very small canoe like boats that hold one fisherman to larger more commercial style fleets that go out to sea. In either case Indonesian boats are typically pained in bright festive colors by each family with pride.
These furniture pieces are crafted in small rural seaside village on the island of Java by craftsmen that have often been making furniture for several generations. We found this workshop during our travels in Indonesia in a rural seaside village on the island of Java. We purchase directly from the workshop with no middle man or distribution chain, and sell directly to the consumer. This is why we can offer these pieces at a fraction of the cost of what you would typically find in a small boutique furniture, or interior design shop where these are currently sold.
The boatwood benches can be used either indoors or outdoors as accent pieces, display, or functional benches. The combination of rustic recycled boat wood give the coffee tables a shabby chic feel that will accent both modern, traditional, transitional, nautical, or rustic decors. Use these indoor outdoor teak and recycled boat wood tables in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room, hallway, patio, or garden. They are great as a small coffee table for small urban interiors and lofts, or as a end table, or as smaller accent tables. Since they are made of both authentic salvaged fishing boat 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 and salvage 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 piece is 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 craftsmen in Indonesia. The boat wood is processed but we retain the rustic feel and nature to it. These have been crafted within Decoteak's unique contemporary furniture designs. 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.
