The Teak House
Tangalle, Sri Lanka

My helpers - how to transport our huge new sofa!

On a recent trip to Sri Lanka, I went in a vegetable van to collect our amazing new sofa, handmade by a clever man just inland from Galle. We needed a lot of help to get it in the van! This is where you realise just how fantastically useful are the discarded outer shell of the coconut - used to protect the edges of the beautiful new sofa from the wire rope required to secure it in the van.

With most of the children from the village in attendance, we tried a group photo of some of our little helpers!

It was a fun - and hot - day out but we got the new sofa back to The Teak House without incident or harm and now the fabulous new cushions are being created.  I am longing to stretch out - hammocks, sun loungers, day beds and now the most comfortable sofa in Sri Lanka! The Teak House has it all.
