About Indonesian Furniture

Indonesia Furniture - Worldwide, Indonesian furniture, with its deep, natural colour and textures, is revered for its remarkable durability and unique design. If you are a discerning individual who appreciates beautifully crafted furnishings with an accent on sophistication, then products manufactured in Indonesia should be at the top of your list.
The artisans and craftsmen of Indonesia have long been familiar with materials such as Rattan, Teak, Sea-grass, Cane and other exotic materials indigenous to the area. Centuries of skill and craftsmanship experience are proudly passed down through the generations, which guarantees authentic styling and natural appearance.
As Indonesian furniture and products are hand crafted, they are generally higher priced than more common pine furniture and mass-produced home décor items. However, with price, comes exclusivity. Aesthetically pleasing, Indonesian furniture brings character, warmth and richness to any home or business. Thanks to timeless design and unsurpassable quality, you will not find the need to replace furnishings for a very long time.

Woods used in the manufacture of Indonesian furniture
Indonesia is home to some of the most biologically diverse forests in the world; ranking third after Brazil and the Democratic Republic of Congo. As a result, Indonesia exports high quality timber and furniture across the globe. Their timber exports include:

A yellowish-brown timber with good grains and texture, teak is used in the manufacture of outdoor furniture, boat decks, and other articles where weather resistance is desired. Teak’s natural oils make it ideal for use in locations where it is exposed to the elements. It is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance.

Indonesian rattan furniture is widely regarded as some of the best in the world due to the level of craftsmanship required in the production of the pieces of furniture. Rattan accepts paints and stains like many other wood types, so it is available in many colours; and can be crafted into many styles. Moreover, the inner core can be separated and worked into wicker.
In forests where rattan grows, its economic value can help protect forest land, by providing an alternative to loggers who forgo timber logging and harvest rattan canes instead.


Reddish-brown in colour, Mahogany darkens over time and displays a reddish sheen when polished.  It has a generally straight grain, usually free of voids and pockets. A durable wood with excellent workability, mahogany it is ideally suited to crafting cabinets and furniture.
It is widely used for fine furniture throughout the world and Indonesian plantations supply high quality timber to Australian fine furniture makers. As mahogany also resists wood rot, it is particularly useful in boat construction.  Mahogany is also often used for musical instruments, particularly the backs, sides and necks of acoustic guitars and drums shells because of its ability to produce a very deep, warm tone.

Sustainable wood supply
It is our policy at Indonesia Furniture to purchase products from suppliers who are commited to supporting wood sourced only from sustainable programmes.  Our main supplier uses timbers that are purchased from forests where felling is controlled by the government. In addition, they have planted over 300 000 trees in Java since 2005 and support nurseries to nurture new seedlings by the thousands and see them through to planting.
The wide variety of trees being planted manifests in diverse forests, rather than plantations. This encourages villagers to develop environmentally-friendly practices and to become interested in the trees which often bear fruit and other by-products for everyday life. This provides local communities with an income and in this way, the villagers bcome actively involved in nurturing young saplings, ensuring that all wood used is replaced.
