Maku Furnishings: Surf-Inspired Modern Furniture

We're fans of this Lounge Chair made from sustainably-harvest teak by Maku Furnishings. Founded by two "Global Surfers, Travelers, Marketers and Lifestyle enthusiasts", Maku Furnishings offers "non traditional furnishings for a modern world." Their surf-inspired aesthetic is tempered by a distinctly modern feeling that yields a pretty unique set of products; Maku calls them "experiential, organic, and relevant to passionate lifestyle participants and design enthusiasts."

Sustainable Wood Furniture for All Occasions

They have a range of products that include seating, tables and "entry", which is a small collection of ornate (but pretty cool) doors. The Lounge Chair, combines understated simplicity with sleek sophistication to create a chair that looks as relaxing as it feels. All of Maku's products are made from sustainably-harvested teak from Indonesia (we expressed some concerns about Myanmar's teak trade, but this operation appears to be on the level), and they're also proud members of 1% for the Planet. They made a recent appearance at ICFF in New York, but their home-base is Carlsbad, CA and their furniture is available at two shops in southern California, as well as one in Portland, OR.
