Costa Rica offers different styles of furniture and many options of woods to choose from. In this country, wood is still affordable and attainable. Among the different types of woods used for furniture are Guanacaste, Cedar, Cenizaro and pine among others.
One of the most important things to watch for when buying wooden furniture is the treatment that the wood has had prior to manufacturing. This, because Costa Rica has many different climates and the wood that is used for manufacturing in the Central Valley sometimes might shrink or expand when the items are transported to the coast, for instance. The high temperatures along with the dry climate of Guanacaste, sometimes causes wooden items to crack or expand.
Also,there are manufacturing companies that offer nice styles of furniture and at reasonable prices with treated and dried woods under high standards. We have an interesting catalogue of Costa Rican made furniture that most of our clients love to check. Visit our website at www.pacifichomefurnishing.com for pictures and prices of Costa Rican made furniture.
Another good option is teak wood. This furniture is of recent manufacture in the country because this wood has not been in the market for so long. In order to get aged teak furniture you need to look at Indonesian imported items that sometimes are not so bad in price considering the beauty of carvings and the quality of the woods. The balance in price is given by the low cost of labor in those countries compared to Costa Rican labor. Of course the items pay duties but you might be surprised to find pieces at bargain prices from certain suppliers.
Comfort is not one of Costa Rican furniture pluses. We usually recommend imported items when our clients need couches or sofa beds due to the quality and density of foams found here. Some custom manufacturers do a good job in sofas but we prefer to advice on imported items because the price is similar and sometimes lower compared to the items locally produced.

Nonsense. If you find the right Tico he can build you anything you want that will be more comfortable than anything from the empire.

We finally finished our home last month in Coco and had it furnished by Fine Furniture of Sarchi. Adolfo and his partner, Tom, made all our furniture. It is amazing at the details of the carvings in the beautiful cedar wood. The teak pool furniture is also beautiful. They used Sunbrella material. We are very impressed with their quality on on time schedule. We highly recommend them.

We were ripped good by a smooth talking guy that makes teak furniture in Plaza Itskazu. He made the first teak chaise for us but charges us 5 prices, as did the Tica Interior decorator. After we finished construction on our home in Playas Del Coco, we had our furniture, all kitchen, closets and baths done by Adolfo with Fine Furniture of Sarchi. I can't say enough good things about these guys. Hand made, with quality like we have never seen before !
