Casual Market “Sneak Peek”: Groovystuff

Groovystuff, a wholesale manufacturer and supplier of traditional, rustic home furnishings, will be exhibiting at Casual Market in the fall. A Dallas-based company, Groovystuff is committed to sustainable manufacturing and environmental accountability. Founded in 1998 by Chris Bruning and Jeff Singleton, the company designs, produces and distributes unique reclaimed teakwood home furnishings for indoor and outdoor spaces.

This year, Groovystuff will be showcasing a new product collection from Appalachian State University student Michelle Walbert, in collaboration with Chris Bruning. The Deschutes bench, made from reclaimed teak from Thailand, was specially designed for Casual Market. Featuring large, sturdy I-beams and sustainable outdoor teak flooring, the Deschutes bench has all the appeal for a rural, country setting. The sustainable harvested teak flooring makes up the Deschutes frame and horizontal flats, while the dramatic I-beams run the length of the bench. A flat, lacquer finish softens the two-tone teak bench for an elegant, eco-friendly indoor / outdoor piece.

Targeting Generations X and Y, the Deschutes bench is one of Groovystuff’s new products for retailers. The collection aims to bridge the design trend gap between emerging young adults and established consumers. Show goers won’t want to miss out seeing this company’s booth (8-4046) at Casual Market.
