JAKARTA, IndonesiaThe Hinrich Foundation released the Indonesia Sourcing Report: Furniture 2017 with the support of its partner in export development, Global Sources (NASDAQ: GSOL).

It also features an overview of the industry, new product features, price guides and export data. PDFs of each section are available to download for free online.

Future releases to feature simple, modern designs

Indonesia furniture suppliers typically offer classic or colonial designs with intricate carvings. In coming months, many companies are expanding their offerings to include simple, contemporary designs to appeal to a wider range of buyers.

“Indonesia furniture makers will be producing slimmer, more compact designs that suit the modern lifestyle,” said Emerela Puspita, Hinrich Foundation’s export consultant for Indonesia. “To keep the identity of Indonesian products in the market, suppliers plan to use domestic and eco-friendly materials such as reclaimed teak, durian, jackfruit and mango wood, which are unique and found throughout the country.”

Having domestically available raw materials is one of the main advantages of Indonesia’s furniture sector. Indonesia has more than 91 million hectares of forested land, where teak, meranti, keruing and other species of wood can be found. The country is also the world’s largest producer of rattan, accounting for over 80 percent of global supply.
