The Heralded Teak Furniture Manufacturer: Kingsley-Bate
With an average lifespan of 75 years, teak wood has long been commended as the ideal choice for outdoor furniture. It has qualities unlike any other wood in its ability to withstand the rigors of adverse climates, yet weather attractively.
There are only a handful of successful teak furniture manufacturers and it is Kingsley-Bate leading the way. They are the first American company to use Javanese teak in the manufacture of its furniture. In the early 1980's, Kingsley-Bate and the Indonesian government developed a teak furniture program in Java. This was a great undertaking as the Indonesian government allows the felling of a limited number of trees each year.
Kingsley-Bate's Javanese teak is carefully harvested from controlled plantations. This ensures there will be no harm to Indonesia's natural resources. For every tree cut down, an equal amount of reforestation must take place. Preservation of the earth's resources is a major concern today and Kingsley-Bate is committed to their environmental responsibility.
Due to the increasing demand of this beautiful hardwood, teak furniture has become a symbol of affluence and luxury. As America's leading manufacturer, Kingsley-Bate sets the benchmark for quality and design of teak furniture. They use only premium quality Javanese teak and precise mortise and tenon joinery in the construction of their furniture. Their factories fully assemble each piece of furniture prior to shipment to ensure all pieces fit together and reassembly requires minimal effort.
The design of Kingsley-Bate's teak furniture incorporates the superb skills of wood carvers and craftsmen. The combination of exceptional material and craftsmanship is the reason Kingsley-Bate is consistently listed as a top selling teak furniture line in numerous publications such as Casual Living.
Some of Kingsley-Bate's important projects include the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Westin Vail Resort, Biltmore Estate, Martha's Vineyard Ferry Terminal, University of California-Berkeley, M.I.T. and many others. Their teak furniture is regularly identified for residential and commercial use by both interior and exterior designers, architects, hotels, universities, parks, resorts and more.
Kingsley-Bate offers only the highest quality products to the casual furniture market. They set the standard for design, style and durability of teak furniture. Every year, their line is expanded to incorporate new products and accessories giving the consumer more options than ever.
