Tropical Salvage furniture is made from tropical hardwoods which are salvage on several different islands of the Indonesian archipelago. None of the wood comes from standing trees. Tropical Salvage selects quality hardwoods that are both durable and exceptionally beautiful. The wood is old: some a few decades old, some a thousand years old. It beautifully expresses its history as wild-growth grain figure, mineral accumulation, and the effects of nails, seasoning cracks & bore holes are evident in many pieces. They are a wonderful testament to the wood's historical richness and new life.
