I always adore this type of window / door. It’s a little bit tedious to clean, but I wouldn’t mind.
Nowadays I noticed a lot of restaurants in Jakarta are using all these old components to decorate their establishments. With various colors and sizes, either hanging on the wall or from the ceiling, these windows / doors certainly cheers the atmosphere up.

I used to love to collect big solid wood antique pieces. But with our nomadic lifestyle, it’s nearly impossible to continue this hobby. All of the pieces I bought are just sitting now in my mother’s house. Nice to look at, yet too big to be accommodated in our current home.
This door handle is from my favorite piece. It’s a gigantic Javanese style door frame with 4 different door panels, made out of solid wood (read : non-dismantleable), measuring approximately 5m wide and 3m height. Beautiful is an understatement. For sure I will never ever be able to find a piece like that, with the price when I bought it. Shot with
