We wanted to design and produce a bench fit for a King so when we saw this sturdy and historic design outside Twickel Castle in the humble city of Delden, Holland we realised this was the right way to go. We wanted to give the bench not just a timeless design (the castle was built in 1333), but we also wanted it to tell a story so decided to produce it in reclaimed wood almost 100 years old. The teak used in this bench is reclaimed from ancient Indonesian houses which are being replaced with modern infrastructure and thought what better way to give this sturdy and noble material a new lease of life.
Our blog article How Reclaimed Teak Tells a One Hundred Year Old Story explains why the reclaimed wood has tiny cracks and some slight imperfections from its previous life as a construction material.
Teak is the most premium wood species for outdoor use and trumps even the most premium hardwoods in terms of durability. Of course, it's not the cheapest but you will get a product that will last many many years and summers to come. The natural chemicals and characteristics within the teak prevent woodrot and although it will form a silver patina following exposure to the sun, its golden finish can be retained through sanding and re-oiling once per year.
