since 1972, leading thai furniture exporter deesawat has been paving the way towards a more sustainable wood industry. first starting out as a sawmill, the company has now grown with the development of its own production facilities, where they revive and improve timber building materials in a sustainable manner, with the continuous aim of developing designs for the broader global market. with a focus on teak, white oak, rose wood and asian walnut, along with reclaimed wood, deesawat prides itself on being a green production factory where there is no leftover material that goes unused – everything goes into something!

 

the business specializes in project customization, whether it is for the commercial or private sector. they aim at collaborating closely with their clients in order to achieve a final outcome that is right for their build, whether it is the actual material choices, patterning and color or practical application. this is evidenced in their extensive inventory of designs that cover a range of architectural needs – from wooden flooring and wall paneling, to decking, doors, fabrics and furniture.

deesawat sees a lot of success in the development of flooring which is made only from reclaimed and leftover wood from various mills. these off-cuts are sealed with special finishes that express a weathering affect that is reminiscent of antique floor panels, offering an old time feeling to contemporary commercial retail settings, restaurants, casinos, etc. the warmth and diversity of deesawat products are an indication of quality and sustainability, in which they offer the highest form of craftsmanship through their line.
