The principal woods used for the production of Indonesian furniture are Teak and Mahogany. Mahogany is cheaper than teak and is used where the furniture price is the primary concern. Indonesia also produces substantial quantities of rattan furniture and the main hub for this production is Cirebon on Java. There are also specialized businesses producing bamboo furniture.
Indonesian Teak is second only to Burmese teak in quality but legally harvested Burmese teak is almost impossible to obtain whereas Indonesia has proper government systems to provide legal and sustainable teak supplies for the Indonesian furniture industry.
Furniture, either in Teak or Mahogany, is produced throughout Indonesia but the main production centers for export are based in Jepara, Solo, Surabaya and Jogjakarta on the island of Java and Bali island (although much of the Balinese furniture is, in fact, imported from Java). Specialized furniture factories in Semarang, Jepara, Solo and Bandung (also in Java) also supply the export market. Some businesses have their marketing and head offices in the capital, Jakarta, but actual furniture production will usually be carried out in other provinces.
Teak is the timber of choice where beauty, longevity and minimum maintenance are more important than price alone.
Indoor furniture is usually finished and the choice of color finish is virtually unlimited. All factories should be able to give examples of the color finishes readily available.
Indonesian furniture is available in different styles and designs. These styles are common to many factories and you will see the same designs on different websites even though the model reference numbers may differ. Styles include Antique Reproduction, Colonial, Empire, Chippendale, Victorian but the interpretation of these styles will vary from factory to factory.
The variety of funiture available includes all the usual home furniture items - Armoires, Beds, Benches, Bookcases, Cabinets, Chairs, Chests, Coffee Tables, Desks, Dining Sets, Dressing Tables, Hallstands, Floor Screens, Mirrors, Nightstands, Sideboards, Buffets and others.
Some factories will also custom build your indonesian furniture either to your own specific design or to one of their designs modified to suit.
Unlike Indoor furniture, outdoor furniture is usually left unfinished because of the extreme resistance to weather conditions that teak possesses. Over time, unfinished teak outdoor furniture will change in color and develop an appealing siver-gray patina.
Outdoor furniture encompasses the whole range of patio and garden furniture - benches, chairs, tables and loungers.
Even more than furniture for indoor use , the styles and designs for outdoor furniture tend to be standardized across many factories although model references and individual sizes may vary. Jepara is the main hub for teak garden / patio furniture but competition is intense and quality can be variable as manufacturing short cuts are introduced in order to compete on price.
