OUR STORY

It was whilst working in the senior management team of Taipan Taverns (Jim Thompson’s bar and restaurants) in the late 1990s that Andy Becalick first started his love affair with the art, style & design of the Far East. With plenty of experience in Malaysian, Indonesian & Thai cuisine, Andy was initially brought in to head up the food development team, but he soon grew into the role of Operations Director with responsibility in all aspects of the business. A big part of what made JT’s (Jim Thompson’s) unique was the objets d’art on display in each restaurant, all available to buy whilst you dined.

Buying these objets d’art became a regular pilgrimage to South East Asia, where relationships were built up over a number of years with suppliers, designers and craftsmen in Indonesia, Thailand, Philipines and Malaysia,  this continued after he departed Taipan Taverns to set up his own bar and restaurant business in Reading, the interest in art had now grown to encompass furniture and design, using his ideas to design local bar & restaurant businesses such as the Moderation, the Queens Head and the Bali Lounge, all featuring art and furniture collected on his travels. Now, nearly 20 years after his first buying trip to the region, Andy has teamed up with another local Reading entrepreneur, Jon Leeming, to set up Exotic Furniture, capturing the experience of 20 years buying in S. E. Asia and formalising it into an exciting blend of sourcing, design and manufacture. We bring in raw materials and unusual design items from our trading partners, add our own touches of design and elements of upcycling, to bring our customers an opportunity to own something startlingly different to the norm. Others do import art and furniture from S. E. Asia, but because we finish and customise these products in our own workshop, we are able to offer much more choice and aftercare to our customers.  We also collaborate with local young designers and craftsmen to create new and interesting designs with a particular interest in upcycled materials mixed with recycled wood from various old sources. We are currently working on projects combining upcycled glass waste with old mahogany laboratory tops and epoxy resins. The results are stunning. We invite you to be part of our journey, whether as a customer or collaborator and welcome you to visit our workshop and warehouse in Reading
