Country Casual

Ed and Bobbie Goldstein started Country Casual in their Germantown basement in 1977, inspired by the teak benches that have withstood the elements in London’s Hyde Park for 70 years. Initially they imported the English benches. But now the company, headed by the couple’s son, Dana Goldstein, designs its own teak furniture—benches, outdoor dining sets and seating collections—using ecologically harvested Indonesian wood.

“I loved the idea of buying from a local company,” says Chevy Chase’s Diana Lockshin, who purchased Country Casual’s outdoor furniture for her Chevy Chase backyard and Annapolis condo.

A 4-foot-long bench starts at $550 at the company’s 4,000-square-foot Gaithersburg showroom. But Bethesda residents can enjoy the company’s teak benches for free along Bethesda Row and outside Barnes & Noble. It’s a great place to people-watch on a sunny afternoon.
