Sustainable design is hugely trendy this year, and much like eco-friendly building materials, such as bamboo and recycled plastic, reclaimed furniture provides a bang for your buck, without wreaking havoc the environment. Designer Sarah Marie talks to a professional at Casamia Home about the micro-trend that is reclaimed teak furniture.
What are the benefits of reclaimed teak furniture?
While teak on its own is not entirely eco-friendly, reclaimed teak is. There are a host of benefits that teak offers, one of which is durability. Unlike many other woods, teak does not have the tendency to rot, because it has the natural ability to keep parasites and fungus in check. Teak is also a hardwood, making it less susceptible to weather warping, corrosion, and staining.
What types of finishes are available for reclaimed teak?
Casamia Home offers a variety of finishing options to their customers, including all-natural, all-white/bleached, black, and two toned. On the more eclectic side of things, Casamia Home also offers gold and silver finishing for customers looking for furniture pieces that look more glamorous and high-end.
