Yosemite is a natural wonderland. Its grandeur and beauty have inspired onlookers for centuries, and it even inspired the creation of the national park system. It also inspired this all-natural coat tree, which began its life in a very different kind of forest on the other side of the world. It's made from mangosteen, a tree famed for its nutritious fruit. But mangosteen trees only produce fruit for a number of years, and then are burned down to make room for new trees. To prevent those resources from being wasted, Thai artisans have reclaimed the felled trunks, and trimmed, sanded and stained them to form these handsome coat stands. Because they're made from actual tree trunks, each one is unique. Each will have between 10 and 15 "hooks", and their heights will vary. Place it near the entrance of your home or office, and enjoy your own private piece of the great outdoors. Made in Thailand. Click here to check out our Yosemite Coat Hook.

To maintain the warm natural finish, use teak oil as needed or allow this wonderful wood to age to a natural gray.Chair - 29.5"L x 35.4"W x 33.1"H

For over a century, Indonesia has been one of the foremost sources of teak in the world. This beautiful golden-toned wood has been prized by modernist designers and traditional wood craftsmen for its resistance to cracking or warping. As foresters log off the mature stands, they leave behind stumps and roots that would typically be burned out of the soil. Enterprising Indonesians realized that the wood in these stumps had the same basic qualities as the trunk wood prized throughout the world, but with irregularities that seemed to express the living spirit of the wood. For generations now, these village craftsmen have extracted the roots and worked them into beautiful household products with a unique, organic nature that animates their creations.
