Teak is a tropical hardwood which has a leather-like smell when it is freshly milled (and also lovely to touch). It is commercially valued for its durability and water resistance, and is used for boat building, exterior structures, furniture, carving and other small wood accessories or implements. It is native to Southeast Asia, and priced for it looks and strength.
This unassuming round antique bowl serves many purposes: It’ll hold knick knacks and keys; it can hold fruits and potpourri for display; it can even be used as a water bowl for your pets! (We did mention it’s unchewable.) Buy a set of them and line them along your console as a decorating item. They’re easy to stack as well, and are ever so useful.
