There is no denying that, when furnishing your home, solid wood furniture is one of the best choices to make. However, an even better option is purchasing solid wood teak furniture. The reason I can make such a statement is because as a designer and retailer, I have seen many products and furniture designs over the years. Those that stand the test of time, and the wear and tear of family life, are wooden furniture pieces crafted from solid hardwoods – and solid teak is one of the very best hard woods available. It has a very tight grain and is even perfect for garden furniture as it is hardy enough to withstand the unpredictable British weather.
If you are in the process of updating your home then remember that line – ‘natural beauty is always best’. Your home is your castle and is your personal space away from the outside world, so it does not need to be heavily made up and over decorated. Wooden furniture pieces and coordinating accessories will create a natural look that is soothing in appearance and easy to maintain. In the living areas, try to combine soft, inviting sofas and occasional seating with a teak wood coffee table left in its natural finish; this will show all of the beautiful grains and history in the timber.
If you love the idea of your furniture telling a story, then choose reclaimed teak wooden furniture. These pieces are crafted from aged pieces of teak wood, which has been salvaged from old colonial buildings, railway sleepers and boats. Every piece of wooden furniture will have different characteristics, patchwork, and an added benefit is that the timber has been allowed to mature naturally, and therefore will be even more durable and hardwearing.
In the dining area, beautiful solid wood teak furniture is an absolute must! This room is where you will eat every day and where you entertain guests for dinner. A solid teak wooden table will last for many years and when left in its natural colour it teams beautifully with both leather and upholstered chairs. Add a sideboard or display unit and you will have created a very sophisticated area.
