Everything you need to know about teak outdoor furniture
We make our outdoor furniture from FSC-certified teak wood. It’s designed to last forever and age beautifully. If you’re shopping around for outdoor furniture for your home or commercial property, here’s what you need to know about teak wood furniture.
What is teak?
Teak is a tropical tree that grows in the south and southeast Asia, especially Indonesia, Myanmar, Bangladesh, and India. It’s a hardwood, which means it’s naturally very strong and durable. Because it’s weather resistant, it’s often used for outdoor furniture, houses, and even boats.
Our teak wood is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), which means it’s harvested from sustainable forests, where the environment and local jobs are protected. Choosing natural teak wood for your outdoor furniture is a great choice for the environment.
Pros and cons of teak outdoor furniture
If you choose teak for your outdoor furniture, it really will last a lifetime. Teak wood won’t crack or break, and it’s resistant to pests and termites. Teak furniture doesn’t require much maintenance, and a teak floor or deck will develop a natural non-slip surface.
Teak wood has a variety of different finishes. It can be oiled or varnished to make it shine. If you prefer, you can leave the wood untreated, and it will weather naturally to a beautiful silver-grey finish.
However, teak wood can be heavy, so it’s not ideal if you plan to move your outdoor furniture around a lot. It’s best to leave furniture in place so that it can age naturally.
