|As "Global Surfers, Travelers, Marketers and Lifestyle Enthusiasts", Johnny and Mike the founders of Maku Furnishings, have experienced some of the most incredible people and parts of the world; in particular that of the Southeastern Pan Asian communities within Indonesia and more specifically the kind and gentle people of Bali.
Through these travels the concept of Maku was born. The availability of plantation grown, reclaimed and sustainable raw materials, ample and quality production resources combined with the distinctly artesian work of the Indonesian people create furnishing unlike anything available in today's marketplace. Resulting in a challenge to the way business is looked at within the "cookie cutter" mass producers that are most prominent in the outdoor and casual living sector.
As part of their commitment to "Global Stewardship" and leaving the world a better place than when we entered it. Maku is a proud member of 1% for the Planet and they gladly donate 1% of sales to help keep the ocean waters blue and the mountain snows white.
Combining this non-traditional approach to the furnishings marketplace with unique and Iconic lifestyle athletes such as World Class Surfers Rizal Tanjung and Kassia Meador as well as World Renowned Snowboarder Keir Dillon, they believe consumers and retailers alike will embrace Maku furnishings. "Experiential" products that bring the authenticity of outdoor lifestyle and design appreciation in contemporary terms to your storefronts, homes, and outdoor living spaces.
Maku's products are made with the finest reclaimed, sustainable plantation grown teak (Tectona grandis) available in the world and they have gone to great lengths in establishing strategic partnerships that allow ample wood availability with minimal impact to the fragile Indonesian eco system.
The quality of their wood is second to none and each plank is painstakingly examined for irregularities and flaws prior to manufacturing resulting in a consistent warm golden honey aesthetic throughout each piece.
To further their quest to create the finest furniture on the market today all Maku furnishings are kiln dried to minimum of 10% moisture content under very strict manufacturing guidelines, feature world class hardware combined with dovetail joinery and are expertly finished to create a masterpiece for your living space.
