Inception Design and Trading Sdn Bhd (IDT) is a Furniture manufacturer and wholesaler that specialises in wooden furniture such as dining sets, bed frames, worktables, and more. The company has been established for 10 years and was conceptualised through the founders’ passion for furniture design and timber products. On a trip to Indonesia, they were inspired by the timber furniture and crafts that they saw there and fell in love with the idea of making their own, as the availability of timber in Malaysia is abundant and of high quality – which got them to embark on their journey of making their own timber furniture from scratch.
As a leader in manufacturing premium solid wood furniture, their designs are done in-house and inspired by the day-to-day life. Their modern and innovative designs leave their customers wanting more.

Most of their furniture are manufactured in Malaysia and ready made as they are exported out in large quantities to all their counterparts overseas.
Through their partnership with Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB), IDT was able to further widen their exposure to overseas countries as they are able to participate in various international exhibitions and roadshows, which has been a benefit for the company as the export markets is sizeable. And they also realise that there is a bigger demand and appreciation for timber furniture overseas. However, in recent years, they have noticed a rise in interest within the local market.
