TEAK

As a tropical hardwood species, teak is deep brown, dependable and used to make some of the hardiest furniture that can last for years. Tectona Grandis or Indian Teak is elegant, of superior quality and very durable. This solid wood was previously used for shipbuilding and crafting other equipment that needed rough usage. Mature teakwood produces the best quality wood furniture, and this ageing process takes several years and superior treatment. Teakwood is used in the making of door and window frames and shutters, pooja rooms, dining table and wooden flooring. It is also considered very auspicious and used in the construction of main doors and entryways.

Wood & Metal sources pure solid teakwood from Nelambur, Hunsur and Dandeli for a majority of our interior and solid wood furniture and accessories including sofa sets, dining furniture, tables and beds. In certain instances, imported teakwood including Burma and African teak are also used.

Rosewood

Richly hued with a beautiful deep red glow, rosewood is one of the most sought after wood species and has been traditionally used in designing home furniture since centuries. Belonging to the genus Dalbergia, most rosewood originally came from Madagascar, but then began to be grown across different parts of the world. This fragrant wood with a dense grain near the core and a softer, porous outer core is used extensively in crafting traditional sofa sets, dining tables, Pooja rooms and ornamental furniture such as murals and sculptures. Its soft exterior and ability to breathe are especially beneficial in crafting wooden floorings and other wood interiors such as pillars, stairways and bannisters.

Wood & Metal sources Rosewood from Karnataka-Kerala border, for crafting all kinds of pure wood furniture for residential and commercial spaces. The wood is ethically sourced and worked upon by skilled artisans to craft murals and sculptures of any size and dimension too.

Wood & Metal sources all its wood from licensed forest areas and government depots. Estate or garden wood isn’t used by us in any construction.

Beside Teak and Rose wood, we also used other types of wood including White Cedar, Mahogany, American Walnut and Oakwood to design and craft contemporary and traditional designs. Solid wood furniture is custom made for different spaces and as per customer needs.
