Only the highest quality Teak wood materials are used by Teak House Design Ltd from the best and oldest plantations in Central Java, Indonesia. These sustainable plantations created by the Dutch almost two centuries ago are now owned and managed by the Indonesian Government.

The Indonesian Forestry Dept “Perum Perhutani” stringently controls the cutting and replanting programme, thus ensuring not only a constant supply of mature logs, but also providing considerable local employment.

Teak House Design Ltd guarantee to use only wood sourced officially through the Perum Perhutani plantations

Genuine Teak (Tectona Grandis) has a high natural oil content which is  impervious to extreme weather conditions and naturally resilient to rotting over a period of many, many decades without the need for protection.

For many centuries teakwood has been the mainstay of shipbuilding and marine constructions such as wharves and docks etc. These days it has become de-rigour on nearly all the multi-million pound yachts you see in the marina, fitted not only for its longevity under extreme conditions but also for its beautiful appearance.

Over the last 150 years teakwood has become the most sought after and prestigious of timber for outdoor garden furniture, and now due to our unique manufacturing and purchasing methods it is used exclusively on our stylish outdoor buildings.

Due to its high natural oil content, teakwood requires no protective maintenance, EVER!

It’s rich golden tones show off the woods natural beauty to its best effect, but can be lightened or darkened to suit your individual preference.

All other products of a similar design on the market are made from softwood which has to be chemically treated to achieve any reasonable life span outdoors. All other manufacturers offer quite limited and restrictive guarantees, which on products of this value do not appear to give good value for money, on what is not an insignificant purchase price.

Good quality Teak, properly made, is a purchase for a lifetime’s enjoyment, and even to be passed down to the next generation. Its timeless beauty and sophisticated elegance will be appreciated more and more as time goes by and will make you the envy of your friends for having something “truly special”
