Only the best-looking pieces of wood get jobs as furniture, leaving the rest of the lumber world to fight over internships as toothpicks, paper napkins, and s'mores-smeared kindling. Mingle with some top-notch timber with today's Groupon: for $125, you get $250 worth of home furnishings at The Elephant's Trunk.
The Elephant's Trunk carries an elegant armada of handcrafted furniture made from solid teak, acacia, and other exotic woods. With variable grains, textures, and tones, each piece of harmonious hardwood features a fine lacquer finish and a pitch-perfect singing voice. Give graphic novels a home on a Florence two-drawer coffee table ($499), or outfit a drab office space with a Cordoba carved computer desk ($525). The Elephant's Trunk offers more than 30 different varieties of home-furniture collections, including armoires, bookcases, bed frames, and benches. Backsides can rest on an Albany club chair ($525) or get checked out in a Jaden mirror ($275). All of the offerings at The Elephant's Trunk retain distinctive knots, grains, and cracks from the hand-finishing process, giving each item a unique, rustic, robin-attracting appearance.
