About us

Puji is a furniture company that is inspired by the beauty of the Far East and Orient. You can find us online and in-store, find out more about our store here. The name ‘Puji’ is Indonesian and simply means to bless or admire. For us it's perfect, we want you to stand back, admire your home and the beauty of our furniture.

Words such as tranquil, eco-friendly, sustainable, reclaimed and functional are what drive our designers and the company. Our vision is for our furniture designs to be pieces that withstand the test of time, age beautifully and fit in both modern and traditional homes while being eco-friendly and sustainably sourced.

Puji insists on top-quality design, materials and craftsmanship and we are constantly evolving and designing new products. The result is a truly unique product that we can all be proud of. Whether you are looking for urban industrial, mid-century or modern and contemporary furniture, we are proud of the extensive range we have to offer.

We specialise in reclaimed timbers as they require no new trees making them an environmentally friendly option. Just a few of these include mango, pine, oak and teak wood.

Puji is renowned for its reclaimed teak ranges, these are crafted from wood so old you can feel the history and character. Each piece tells its own story, no two pieces of wood are the same. Old teak is sourced through recognised Indonesian timber brokers who purchase timbers recovered from old colonial buildings. This rustic, weathered and durable wood is perfect for the UK market. It is much less likely to shrink, move or crack. Unique and stunning, reclaimed teak is still a popular choice and we know why.

Many of the Puji designs have been featured in the press and home interior magazines such as Grand Designs, Ideal Home, Period Living and many more.  Puji is always delighted to appear in publications and it's even more amazing to think of how many homes hold a little piece of Puji.

We now manufacture both furniture and handcrafted accessories from all across Indonesia and its beautiful villages. We love the techniques that local Indonesians use and the final results are pieces that have been lovingly crafted and don’t negatively impact the environment. We are proud to have created a Puji community and our regular visits always lead to something new, which has helped the company to grow and stay exciting.

In the UK, Puji still maintain their ethical production and minimising our environmental impact is one of our core aims.  We work hard to recycle as much packaging in the UK as possible and we operate ‘positive recycling’ reusing as many boxes and wrappings as possible.
 

Ethical Policy

Here at Puji we are committed to being a responsible furniture retailer.  The Puji company has always been inspired by the Far East and focuses on creating beautiful, high quality furniture and accessories from natural and recycled materials. 

All exclusive Puji products are handmade in Indonesia by local craftsmen. The Puji workshop is located in Java and with its exotic tropical surroundings; it is a great environment to work in. All work is carried out using perfected traditional methods.

The increase in popularity of Indonesian furniture has meant an improvement in lifestyle for many local people. Our manufacturing team are well looked after and earn above average wages for the industry. In addition to this we have worked hard to create a sense of community for every member of our team.

The wood used for much of our furniture is reclaimed, and therefore by definition eco-friendly. This old teak has been sourced through recognised Indonesian timber brokers who buy timber recovered from old colonial buildings.

Rapid expansion in Indonesia has seen substantial building work across the country and the old-style wooden buildings are being replaced with more sanitary and modern brick and tile housing. As a result, there is a supply of seasoned teak timber which not only has a rustic weathered appearance, but is very durable in the UK climate and is much less likely to shrink, move or crack. Each old ‘dinglik’ plank is stamped by the authorities as a proof of its source prior to being brought to the factory. On occasions we use premium grade, solid plantation teak sourced and kiln dried from government-controlled plantations on the backing of units and inner drawer panels.

We are constantly in touch with our manufacturers to ensure that the wood they work with is ecologically sound.

Ethical production and minimising our environmental impact is one of our core aims here at Puji, so we work hard to recycle large amounts of our packaging and we operate ‘positive recycling’, reusing as many boxes and wrappings as possible.
