Reclaimed teak is a fantastic material for striking, beautiful furniture that’s made to last. We use it for everything from beds to garden furniture – but we’re very proud of our range of coffee tables. Here’s what you need to know...
Why choose a teak coffee table?
A coffee table is so much more than a handy place to put your latte – it's the centrepiece of a sitting room, and a chance to make a real design statement. Which is where teak comes in.
Teak is one of the most elegant and durable natural materials. Coming from the tropical hardwood tree, Tectona grandis, teak is a strong, hardwearing and attractive wood which is ideal for making high quality items that will stand the test of time.
Strength and durability
Originating from Southeast Asia, teak has been used to make a wide range of different things over the centuries, including boats, bridges, railway cars and buildings – not to mention beautiful furniture!
Teak contains a large amount of natural oils and rubber, held within a tight grain, which also makes it resistant to weathering, dry rot and pests, and means that unlike many other woods, it doesn't require any additional treatment.
Teak is both timeless and distinctive, which makes it perfect for use in any living room, from traditional to more contemporary settings.
Our reclaimed teak has been seasoned for many years, resulting in a beautiful mature grain with a rich colour.
At Raft, we are the world's leading manufacturer of recycled teak. From our factory in central Indonesia, we employ more than 300 highly skilled local artisans to create beautiful and exclusive designs from pre-existing items.
We make our furniture to order, and prepare our teak to the best possible quality and highest longevity using state-of-the-art solar kilns. All of this means that you can enjoy unique, stylish, practical and environmentally-friendly items that you can be as proud of as we are!
