Acute is a furniture store not to be overlooked.

Thanksgiving 2009 023
Acute carries beautiful, new furniture made primarily of teak wood from Indonesia.  Crafted in Indonesia, the furniture is shipped to Okinawa where the owner personally stains and finishes each piece.

Amidst the dressers, buffets, tables and chairs, sit this one of a kind hand-carved world map desk.  While the inlaid plaque says it’s number one of one hundred, the owner told me the crafter gave up this project during desk number two.

Acute worked with a French builder to recreate this Antonio Gaudi piece.

  1. Does anyone know if this shop is fairly priced? Have you purchased anything from here, and if so, how much did you pay?

    I am in love with pretty much everything, but imagine it has a high price tag.

  2. We were just at a stop light when I saw this store and told my husband “we have to check that out!” Then you post about it.
    Ahh good times.
