Why Choose Reclamied Teak Furniture
All furniture manufacturers have a responsibility to use high quality and aesthetically pleasing wood. 4 Living believe that the responsibilities don’t end there, and that it is also important that our wood sources are ethical and environmentally sustainable. For this reason we have chosen to supply only reclaimed teak furniture.
The furniture from 4Living’s teak range are sourced from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified forests. This means that the forests are well managed and, most importantly, are replanted at the rate they are harvested. This process is sustainable and allows the teak to be replenished.
Teak usually grows in tropical climates such as South East Asia and the Caribbean. It is an extremely dense wood and is renowned for its versatility. The oils naturally found in teak make it resistant extremely resistant to water and adverse weather conditions, which makes it a popular choice for outdoor furniture, sculptures and shop fronts.
The rich and unique grain of teak is a great foundation on which to build a relaxing and comfortable home. The beauty of solid wood is that, much like a fingerprint, the grain will be different every time: multiple pieces of teak furniture will always be unique enough to avoid looking like a mass-produced set. If you want to create a warm and comfortable environment in the living room, bedroom or dining room, reclaimed teak is a great way to go due to its naturally warm yellow tones. Our collection of teak furniture encompasses the perfect balance between the traditional warmth of natural wood and contemporary, angular designs.
Whereas furniture made from a softer wood may require layers of glazing and paint, the natural oils in reclaimed teak furniture remove the need for any such treatment. The lack of chemical varnishes only adds to the eco-friendly status of this furniture.
