Buying Balinese Furniture the Easy Way
When you go to Bali for a holiday you will see many lovely things to buy for gifts or for yourself. However, there is a limit to what you can carry home in a suitcase, so you may be disappointed that something like some lovely wicker furniture had to be left behind. Of course, you can arrange to have it freighted, but there will be an additional cost and the time spent in getting it through customs may be longer than you want.
After all, you’ve gone there for a holiday, not to waste a whole day getting something shipped to your home. Bali has some beautiful boat wood furniture that will look lovely in your garden, but you can avoid all the hassles of arranging for freighting – and picking it up off the dock at home – by simply buying your goods from a furniture store that imports Bali or Indonesian furniture.
Being disappointed because you can’t take home something you really want unless you waste a lot of your precious holiday time, can easily be avoided in this way. It’s good to take a photo of it so you don’t forget what it looks like when you get back home. Then it is more likely that you’ll find the same or something very similar at the furniture store when you go shopping.
All the hard work is done by the store and you only have to arrange for it to be delivered to your home. Wicker furniture or boat wood furniture both make lovely settings for your veranda or alfresco dining area. Wicker is a light material ideal for if you want to be able to move your setting around easily. You can keep it sheltered on the veranda most of the time. If it is not man-made wicker it is likely to rot if left outside all the time. But it will be fine to just take it outside for special occasions such as parties or family meals in the summer. You could even leave it out for a week or so if the weather is fine.
Boat wood is somewhat heavier, so is ideal for leaving outside in one place. It will be there for you whenever you want to dine outside or just sit there relaxing with a coffee or cold drink. Since it is used for boats, you can have peace of mind knowing it won’t warp or rot during rain or storms. Of course, you can also have it inside if you want to. There is nothing like the ruggedly beautiful ambience of timber to enhance the decor of a room.
Once you get your Bali furniture you’ll be able to remember your wonderful holiday overseas each time you admire it.
