Throughout history, teak has been the king of hardwoods. From the priceless planks of Thailand’s Palace in the Clouds, Henry VIII’s River Barge, Titanic’s first class promenade deck, Noel Coward’s elegant Jamaica hideaway, to the benches in London’s royal parks recycled from Queen Victoria’s ships, teak transports you to an unparalleled, luxurious, leisurely life.
Ancient Burmese and Thai royalty considered teak to be a royal tree. Recognized for its durability and unequaled, rich beauty, it’s been one of the world’s most valuable timbers throughout history, the first choice to construct and decorate many royal residences and religious buildings, along with the great sailing ships that endured and circled the globe, laden with silks, spices, and teas.
Teak is also ecologically sound. Our owned and operated Costa Rica, Mexico, and Panama plantations are your sources for sustainable teak, which are harvested without harming the rainforests where teak is indigenous.
So whether you are considering flooring, furniture, or an entire edifice, for the touch of casual elegance, the feel of posh pleasure, which adapts beautifully to either classic or modern styles, consider using the wood of kings and live like one yourself.
