What Have We Here ?
Rest like a Javanese monarch on this sturdy and gorgeous work of Indonesian craft, complete with a plump down-filled linen cushion. The graceful frame of this daybed was handcarved more than a hundred years ago, and thanks to the millenia-old technique of mortise and tenon (that holds the joints together), we still get to enjoy this incredible piece today.
Why It Matters ?
The largest teak tree in the world rises more than ten stories above the forest floor. Sadly, due to its rich color and remarkable durability, this tree species has been logged nearly to extinction.
This antique work reminds us of the cost of unsustainable practices, and thus our responsibility to appreciate and care for unique pieces like this that still exist today.
