San José: Urban Artistry and Sustainable Innovation In the vibrant capital of San José, Tony discovers a fusion of urban artistry and sustainable innovation. Costa Rican artisans in this region are known for their skill in creating furniture from reclaimed wood and environmentally friendly materials, offering pieces that are both modern and mindful of nature’s resources.
Guanacaste: Rustic Elegance and Tropical Hardwoods The province of Guanacaste, with its dry tropical forests, is a source of inspiration for furniture that exudes rustic elegance. Here, Tony finds pieces crafted from local tropical hardwoods, known for their durability and rich textures. From sturdy dining tables to elegant canopy beds, each piece showcases the natural beauty of Costa Rican woods.
Limón: Caribbean Influence and Vibrant Colors In the coastal region of Limón, the influence of the Caribbean is evident in the furniture’s vibrant colors and relaxed designs. Tony selects pieces that capture the laid-back, beachy vibe of the area, including colorful hammocks, rattan loungers, and bright, patterned cushions.
Puntarenas: Coastal Charm and Nautical Inspirations The coastal charm of Puntarenas inspires a range of furniture that reflects its nautical heritage. Tony is drawn to items that incorporate elements of the sea, such as driftwood mirrors, seashell-encrusted tables, and maritime-themed decor, perfect for creating a serene coastal ambiance.
