Surfrider Malibu Gets A Facelift With Indoteak Design

Life Alive restaurant, located in Back Bay Boston, was concepted by the interior design firm, Studio Phenomena.

Incredible 100 Year Old Reclaimed Teak Slab Table

Over the years at Indoteak Design, we have seen many amazing pieces of reclaimed teak come through our doors but there was one batch of solid teak tables from an old military base in Java that caught our attention. Almost 7 years ago, a container arrived that held five pieces of wood that were thirteen feet long and two inches inches thick, weighing in at a staggering 1200 pounds each.

While we wanted to take the time to work on these slabs, we just didnt have the time for custom work with our production schedule.
