Teak Furniture: Chicago’s Most Unique Finds

Teak Furniture

Finding a furniture store in Chicago that caters to all of your home décor needs can be a doozy. Sure decorating is a ton of fun (or maybe that’s just our obsession with design talking), but it should also be easy. What’s better than a one-stop-shop Chicago furniture boutique that boasts both beautiful handcrafted furniture and funky, one-of-a-kind accessories? We think you know the answer.

Wrightwood is known for unique furnishings that add visual interest to your blasé space, and this month is certainly no different. Start your spring-cleaning and make some room for new pieces, because here at Wrightwood, May is the month of teak.

Teak is a tropical hardwood native to Indonesia, known for its durability, sustainability and—most importantly—its crazy stunning wood grain designs that make every piece of unique furniture unlike any other. Each teak piece was handcrafted using artisanal techniques that date back centuries, so your redesigned home is sure to look like it was pulled from the pages of a magazine… but with your own teak-y twist.

If you’re the type to stick to tradition, go for the Horne Console in natural wax that features the classic ornate styles of Central Java and the Indonesian Dutch Colonial aesthetic. It’s the perfect place for a bouquet of spring blooms or candid photos of the fam.

Need extra seating? (This is a trick question… who doesn’t?) The Quinn bench in natural wax and the Irena Bench are both handcrafted teak pieces that will spice up your space and give your guests a place to relax. Bonus: benches are the perfect place to feature your favorite throw pillows, because if you’re anything like us, you LOVE a good throw pillow.

The teak collection isn’t just for the traditionalists out there, though. For those design junkies who prefer a more natural look, you’ll go crazy for the teak stumps and solid wood stools. Each piece is crafted from the stump of a wood tree (so cool, right?), so every stool is completely one-of-a-kind with different grains and knots running throughout. Sounds too good to be true? We thought so too.

Opt for the Square V Stool in either black or whitewash if you’re going for a modern, clean design. Or if you’re more of the rustic type, the Round Branch Teak Stool or the Round Knop Stool in honey will have your place pulled together in no time.

Wrightwood Furniture store is the Lakeview Chicago decorator’s number one spot for unique, handcrafted furnishings, and this month’s teak shipment is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Whether traditional design is right up your alley, or modern simplicity is more your speed, you’ll definitely find a teak piece (or two…or three) that you won’t be able to live without.
