Wood! That We Use

Understanding the Benefits of Wood

Type of Wood

Teak (Tectona grandis)

Durability: Teak is renowned for its exceptional durability and natural resistance to rot, pests, and the elements, making it an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor furniture.
Appearance: It has a beautiful golden to medium brown color that matures to a silver-grey if left untreated, with a straight grain and a smooth texture.
Maintenance: Teak requires minimal maintenance due to its natural oils, which protect the wood. For indoor furniture, occasional dusting and a light oiling will keep it looking its best.

Mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla)

Durability: Mahogany is a dense hardwood that is highly durable and resistant to decay, making it suitable for long-lasting furniture.
Appearance: It is valued for its reddish-brown color that darkens over time, and for its fine grain that gives it a smooth finish. Mahogany is often chosen for its classic and refined appearance.
Maintenance: Regular dusting and occasional polishing with a good quality wood conditioner will maintain its luster and protect the wood.

Shirish (Albizia species)

Durability: While not as well-known internationally as teak or mahogany, shirish is a durable wood used in furniture making, particularly in South Asia. It's known for its strength and lightweight properties.
Appearance: Shirish wood can vary in color but often features a light to medium brown hue with an attractive grain pattern. It can provide a more contemporary look due to its less traditional use in furniture.
Maintenance: Similar to other hardwoods, maintaining shirish furniture involves regular dusting and the use of wood-specific cleaners and oils to preserve its natural beauty.

Considerations When Choosing a Handmade Bed

Style and Design: Look for a bed that complements your bedroom's decor. Classic designs often feature elegant lines and may include intricate carvings or headboard designs that showcase the natural beauty of the wood.
Size and Proportions: Ensure the bed fits your space not just physically but also visually. Larger rooms can handle more majestic designs, while smaller rooms may benefit from simpler styles.
Craftsmanship:The quality of craftsmanship will greatly affect the durability and appearance of the bed. Look for skilled artisans who pay attention to details such as joinery, finish, and overall balance.
Sustainability:Consider the source of the wood. Responsibly sourced woods are better for the environment and can also be a sign of quality.
Price: Handcrafted beds, especially those made from high-quality woods like teak, mahogany, and shirish, can be expensive. However, their durability and timeless design often make them a worthwhile investment.
