Furniture with Soul

A distinct, straightforward design and stylishly uncomplicated approach to a variety of seating solutions. The reclaimed teak used to hand-build this teak wood dench originates from bridges, homes and other buildings throughout India, most dating back to the Colonial Era, and was salvaged prior to demolition of the structure. During the salvaging process, nails or bolts are removed from the naturally durable wood, and any large holes are patched with smaller wood pieces. Knotholes, slight cracks and indentations can be expected and do not compromise the piece’s structural integrity but rather add character to the design. Due to the hand-built construction process, slight variations that enhance the piece's character should be expected.

Beauty + Utility + Longevity

Each piece is designed with three equally important factors in mind; beauty, utility, & longevity. As furniture is always seen first, it must visually spark something in the imagination or soul. A piece of furniture has to fulfill a purpose. It has to be able to function within a space, and it has to last. In both utility and aesthetics, a product that is created from real wood, incorporates timeless design, and has simple inner beauty - will be passed along to friends, relatives or otherwise cherished. Whatever the case, the life cycle of this furniture is greatly extended by these simple principles.
