The furniture pieces you will see here represent some of the custom furniture that we have ever made, extended with handcrafted wood furniture pieces made by small scale furniture craftsmen and artisans involved in our partnership program. It is only small part of the solid wood furniture that Indofur and partners have made, to show what we were capable of.
Indonesia's tropical hardwoods
Mahogany and teak wood are the most widely used hardwoods in Indonesia furniture industry. Both species considered as eco-friendly wood since they were grown in timber plantations, state-owned production forest and community-owned FSC certified plantation.
The world largest timber plantation is found in Java island, owned by Indonesia state through PERHUTANI a state-owned forest enterprise. The company strictly control the planting and harvesting cycle of the timber in 2 million hectares production forest of Indonesia. This is to preserve natural resources while providing high-quality wood to industries. The size and the age of the harvested timber limited, the timber age has to be more than ten years old before it harvested.
Seasoned teak wood
Perhutani plantation harvested timber is known to be the best wood available in Indonesia, usually straight and has few to none dead knot. As shown in the photo above, the tree branches are cut before they grow to allow the trees grow straight.
Each piece of our furniture is made of harvested solid wood from the sustainable forest, teak plantation, and reclaimed wood from demolished building. The furniture is handcrafted using a sturdy construction such as dovetails and tenon - mortise mixed together with floating panels fastened with dowels, screws, and reinforcing corner blocks. These traditional furniture construction and joints have been tested for centuries, and still used at the moment.
