2. PRODUCTS AND PRICES
What type of wood is your furniture made of?
At Scanteak, we only use Teak Wood.
Where does your Teak Wood come from?
Our furniture is made of Teak Wood grown in plantations in Java, Indonesia, where the number of trees felled per year is strictly monitored by the Indonesian government. In adhering to such regulations, our factories are certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
Where can I see your products on display?
How can I find out if a particular item is in stock?
Please contact any of our showrooms, or contact us via email/chatbox/Facebook.
Do all your products only come in one colour?
Yes, although shades may differ very slightly due to the natural colouring of the Teak Wood used.
Can you stain my purchased item to a darker colour?
No, as we do not provide customization services.
I would like to request for two pieces with identical markings and patterns.
As Teak Wood is a natural material, no two pieces are alike. The rings, grains and patterns of a tree are all different, just like how humans have different fingerprints.
How do I maintain my Teak furniture piece?
We have prepared some general tips for caring for your Teak furniture here.
For shelves and chest of drawers, it is recommended to place heavier items on lower shelves/drawers, and to avoid opening all (or more than two) drawers at the same time due to a shift in center of gravity which may cause chests of drawers to fall forward.
For homes with children, please take care to ensure that children do not climb on furniture, including (but not limited to) shelves/chests of drawers.
How do I maintain my cushion covers?
Most of our cushion covers can be Dry Cleaned and Machine/hand Washed (water temperature should not exceed 30 degrees Celsius). Dry cleaning solvent should not contain trichloroethylene. Please do not Bleach or Tumble Dry them, as this can lead to discolouration or shrinking. For ironing, please use low heat.
Please note that these instructions do not apply to cushion covers from the Holm Designer range, which should be wiped down with a damp cloth and dried in the sun.
Do you sell cushions and covers for old sofa models?
Yes, we do, albeit for limited models. Due to the evolution of sofa structures, we would recommend that you bring a sample of your existing cushion cover to your nearest showroom so that our sales staff may better advise you.
What density are your sofa cushions?
Most of our sofa cushions are of 31kg/cbm density. We regret to inform that we do not handle customization of cushion densities.
