Store History

  • Headquarters: Paris, France
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.
