Tectona: Outdoor Furniture from France

Store Profile

Store History

  • Headquarters: Paris, France

Our products are an understated luxury, and they stand the test of time, season in season out. Well-being knows no boundaries of time or else. We always favour comfort, our furniture is designed to have large seats, round back rests, generous arm rests, easily operating mechanisms to facilitated folding, or storing. We test our products relentlessly; we use the best available materials to make our furniture. Our teak wood has been selected for its high oil content, it is kiln dried to be more stable. Our furniture is sanded down by hand. It is assembled the old fashion way with mortise and tenors according to the ancient rule of cabinet making. Tectona is not only perpetuating tradition, it is also an innovator: using new materials such as resin wicker a material that is environmentally friendly.

Parisian furniture company Tectona collaborates with some of the best European designers working today—from Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to Weiki Somers. Although their store headquarters are based in Paris, they ship overseas.

They focus on high-quality materials, including teak, powder-coated aluminum, painted wood, and woven resin. Everything is made to withstand the weather while adding high style to a patio, courtyard, or beachfront hotel.

You'll find things here that you haven't seen anywhere else. For instance, Pierre Charpin's line of tennis furniture is made to meet professional sport standards but it's also designed to feel at home on a private beach; Inga Sempé's outdoor shower is strangely minimal and anthropomorphic at the same time; and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec's Pebble Lounge is a huge, disc-shaped woven lounge that looks like a cross between a UFO and a Robert Smithson earthwork.
