Burma teak in Floor Melody

Teak is generally considered to be the “exotic” import for high quality casual furniture, and for good reason.  Teak should last a lifetime; it withstands the elements, and looks like a million bucks.  Teak offers the warmth and beauty that you expect when making a buying decision for something that will be around for decades.

U Bein Bridge Construction on the wooden bridge was completed in 1851 after three years. The bridge was built at a slight curve, and is supported by over a thousand wooden pillars that were hammered into the bottom of the shallow lake. The planks of teak that make up the surface of the bridge were taken from the old royal palace of Inwa, a former Burmese capital, that had been razed a number of times. The resulting bridge might not look very royal, but its history certainly is.
