Shop our collection of Antique Teakwood Furniture from the colonial era in India. Local craftsmen used exotic hardwoods such as rosewood, mahogany and satinwood, because these were particularly suited to the climate. Unlike softer woods, like pine, that tended to warp in the tropical humidity, these woods stood up to the most extreme conditions and were readily available. Teakwood is strong and durable, with a warm colour and attractive grain.
