Story Behind the Art:
Khun Pen speaks of her art: 'Making lotus panels from recycled teak has been done for generations in my family. Originally my elders made the panels as window screen guards to keep out snakes and small animals as many people had no glass. The designs were drawn from ancient memory and depict mainly the lotus bud or flower which is a sign of purity in the Buddhist sense. We only use recycled wood planks from old structures that are being replaced with more modern construction. All work is done in a communal setting as there are many stages done by hand. This is not a regular job as we have to tend the fields also. It is a way to do something together and make extra currency.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
This item may display patches, due to the tools used in its creation. Any knotholes, cracks, natural inclusions or visible marks are results from the natural wood. This does not compromise the structural integrity of the piece

I copied another reviewer's idea of hanging this above our fireplace. Hanging the pieces was a bit tricky, but my husband was able to do it with the help of his father-in-law. It looks great above our fireplace.Read More
This was the first time I have used this site but bearing in mind I'm based in the UK, the service and delivery were great! No problems at all at any stage of the process and the wall hanging looks amazing!Read More
We couldn't be happier with the look of the Recycled Teak Wood Panels from Thailand. I was prepared from previous reviews to receive a product that may have "flaws", afterall it's handcarved.. Others also mentioned that the panels may not match up perfectly. Knowing all of this beforehand was quite helpful.. We have a piece that is unique and beautiful!Read More
I have this hanging above the mango and reed storage bench (also from this site) in my yoga/meditation room. It is absolutely gorgeous. As some of the other comments mention, do not expect perfection from hand carved items. The important thing is that all the carvings line up nicely when hung properly. I would suggest using little metal plates to join each of the four panels together at the top, middle, and bottom of each panel and having a framing shop install picture wire so that it can be hung more easily. If you're handy enough, you can do this yourself. It is a beautiful piece. I'm so happy that I purchased it.Read More
Received a couple of weeks ago as a present for my wife. Box looked OK but when opened one of the panels had a broken piece that we could have easily glued. But one of the other panels had a cracked frame. Too bad it is a cool pieceRead More
I absolutely love these panels. They were purchased to go above the fireplace. They look so original. I can't even begin to tell you the amount of compliments we get. The panels are made by hand, so don't expect four panels that are exactly the same. However, if you are looking for a large piece that is truly unique and will make a statement in your home, then buy this. You won't regret it!Read More
I really love this piece . It is tricky to hang as it comes in 4 panels that weigh 8 lbs each and I ended up calling my carpenter to get it level and he did it in 30 min. It really makes a statement. Love it Love it.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hi dutch57, this item measures .75 inches deep. Thanks for shopping with us.
How heavy is each piece?
The shipping weight is 34 pounds.
is this safe to keep outside in a tropical setting in a garden?
No, it would need to be weatherproofed.
I have the same question and the above answer is still confusing. If you put 4 x12 square inch pieces together you only get a 48 by 12 inch piece (if put side by side) or a 24 by 24 inch piece (if arranged in a square). To get 48 inch square with four pieces, you need each piece to be 24 by 24 inches????
I'm sorry for that mistake. This is the correct information. Each piece measures 12 in W x 48 in Long approximately.
Confused .... how big is this piece? Is it 4 square panels, each 12 inches square (thus being 24 inches square)? Or, is it 48 inches square? The description is inconsistent to me. Thanks.
There are 4 panels measuring 12 inches each. 12 inches times 4 panels, give you a total of 48 inches.

How to Hang a Valance and Curtains
Hanging a valance and curtains over your window will add dimension, texture and style to any room. Window curtains with a valance give your window treatments a finished, designer look.

It's important to measure the window and decide what type of curtains you want before you buy the curtain hardware. A cafe rod will be sufficient to support a sheer curtain, but you will need a stronger curtain rod to support heavier fabrics such as blackout panels. Also, the larger the window, the sturdier the curtain rod will need to be.

A baby nursery that is filled with all the right touches will give your infant a bright and beautiful place to start life.

Removable wall decor appliques and decals offer some of the best ideas for a baby's room. Printed plastic and vinyl wall decals come in a variety of colors and designs.

There are also decals that display words or phrases, such as well-known lines from nursery rhymes, prayers or beloved children's books. These look especially precious when posted on the wall above a baby's crib or cradle and can set the theme for the whole room. Framed art. As in any room, framed art can be the best way to add interest and beauty to nursery walls. Art is always personal, so choose a piece or grouping that speaks to you and your family.
