We are the best! Again.
Timberland has won the Best Award at the Furniture and Lifestyle Exhibition, Yangon, January 2013.
In a tight competition of over 30 local companies, all specialised in designing and producing furniture, and after 5 days of close observation, of interested and amazed clients, The Timberland Furniture managed to win yet another prize, in recognition of their originality and quality of products. The committee, formed of specialists from the Myanmar Timber Association, offered The Timberland Furniture the Best Award at the Furniture and Lifestyle Exhibition, Yangon, March 2012.
Mr. Kyaw Zin, the company's Executive Director, says the success is due to the fact that "mostly, the furniture companies choose the traditional designs. Most of the people still like the traditional designs. But these designs use a lot of wood and produce a lot of waste - the carvings, the solid pieces of wood require this. Our company's concept is different though. We never use carvings, only straight lines. In the exhibition, people saw our designs as something a little strange, not very familiar. But they liked what we do."
