Bavaria Collection

Our Bavaria collection, imported from Vietnam, demonstrates the essence of recycled pine.  Keeping up to LH Imports standards, this collection is hand-crafted with each piece varying in uniqueness.  The pine itself is strong and durable.  Being recycled, the wood has already spent time in the elements. It has expanded and contracted due to changes in humidity countless times and settled into its final state for a more stable.

D-Bhodi and why has it become so popular?

Tags

, , , , ,

One of our newest lines, D-Bhodi, has found its way onto the shelves of many of our retailers and designers.  Originating from Indonesia, this line has a unique blend of natural and urban elements that has proven to be quite popular among our clients and their customers.

The D-Bhodi line is primarily made of teak.  A type of timbre which is highly valued for its durability and water resistance, and is highly sought after in the furniture industry.  This is mainly due to high oil contents, tight grain, and high tensile strength. Teak has been used in boatbuilding for nearly 2000 years, as it has proven to be relatively high in strength.

Aside from its strength and durability, teaks value also comes from it’s elegance. The oil in teak not only protects the wood, but gives a rich, earthy golden-brown colour.  There are other hardwoods which are nearly as strong as teak, but it’s mainly because of its beauty that teak wood is so popular all over the world.

Most of D-Bhodi’s reclaimed wood comes from support beams and outer panels of old houses in remote villages.  Extended families in tiny rural hamlets tucked into the hills of East Java still build beautifully simple knock-down wooden homes made of plentiful teak that grows in that area.  There is a traditional belief that homes shouldn’t be passed more than three generations.  When it’s time, the house is sold and fresh wood is bought to begin again.

Refined, Economic Friendly

LH Imports is a company that strives not only for great looks, but for economic responsibility. Many of our products are made from 100% reclaimed materials. This includes pine, fir, spruce, teak and even our hardware. We are proud to carry many products that are FSC certified. A difficult, yet rewarding certification given to companies that demonstrate environmental and social responsibility. When you purchase our products, we want you to feel that you are also helping the environment. The recycled wood we use comes from old timber formerly used as cable reels, bridge beams, and torn down buildings and pallets throughout the Northern Hemisphere.

Our reclaimed collections are built with old world detailing and top quality manufacturing. Finishing begins with a very specific steam renovation process for the wood, followed by a kiln drying system which is overseen by our Q.C. division.
