Teak is the premium natural material for indoor & outdoor furniture. Teak timber is particularly valued for its durability and water resistance. It is a low to no- maintenance hardwood; easy to preserve its good looks and integrity over decades of use. Teak is a very forgiving hardwood, and scratches, scrapes and stubborn stains (like oil and red wine) can usually be removed using a light to medium grade sandpaper. Teak is often an effective material for the construction of both indoor and outdoor solid wood furniture. It's high oil content, high tensile strength and tight grain makes it particularly suitable for outdoor furniture applications.
OBUZI Teak furniture is handmade. The shapes and frames make our furniture functional and elegant, and simultaneously gives it a warm and welcoming appearance.
Mango wood is a sustainable hard and dense wood and is excellent for making solid wood furniture; easy to work with and finishes well. Mango wood furniture can have a rather unique finish thanks to the great variety of colors a mango heartwood can have, and is therefore best used in a rustic finish and craftsman designs.
Mango wood is only timbered when it stops giving the fruits.
Sheesham Wood (Indian Rosewood)
Sheesham is a sustainable hardwood and is best known internationally as a premier timber species of the rosewood genus. Sheesham wood has a beautiful and unique irregular grain structure which is very distinctive in appearance and can be polished to a fine finish. It is known for durability, natural rich grains, and longevity. Rosewood can develop small white spots in certain areas of the wood. This is a natural occurrence, as certain compounds in the wood can react with the solvents in wood finishes and turn white.
As a natural material each piece of Sheesham timber has individual markings and characteristics resulting in every item of furniture being totally unique.
Acacia is a very long-lasting hardwood and is known as being aesthetically pleasing with distinctive, rustic grain patterns and warm contrasting hues. This makes acacia furniture perfect for contemporary and traditional homes alike, as it will effortlessly complement a range of interior décors.
We use unfinished Oak Wood for the STUKA furniture collection.
Old solid recycled wood (various sorts) is primarily used in our Village collection.
We use recycled iron where appropriate. All wooden furniture containing iron frames and the like.
Wooden furniture should not be kept in spaces where the humidity is volatile. The wood responds to the environment, and sudden changes can ruin it. Avoid unheated attics, basements, outdoor buildings and similar places. Protect wooden furniture against heat from pots, radiators and the like, and never use indoor furniture in the garden or on the terrace.
