For those looking for the secret to the exquisite beauty of our re-claimed teak wood furniture, the answer is simple. All it takes is the time and touch of Mother Nature. Antique Farm implements, yokes, plows, sugarcane grinders, and wagons from a bygone era provide the framework for the interpretations you see in our furniture today. For many years, this wood was not available to the public. Only recently has this vintage prized wood come to market. Soon demand will exceed supply, and the vintage collection you see in its purity today will be reduced to accents of varying degree.
Each piece you see is designed for today’s lifestyle from yesterday’s antiquities. The rich colors and tight grains of this ancient teak wood combine to form the unique character and patina of this collection. Suited for both indoor and outdoor use, Groovystuff furniture, lighting and home decor products provides the atmosphere and character you need to create a rugged earthy look. If kept outdoors, your collectible will turn silver gray as only mature teak wood does. These hints of gray add identity to each piece, but can be easily re-nourished with a fresh coat of Briwax once a season or to your taste. Congratulations on your newest discovery.
