About Teak Furniture
It is our pleasure to offer our clients furniture that can stand the test of time. Teak furniture is commonly passed down to future generations as an heirloom. Let us share with you a little bit more about teak.
Teak is used for making boats, furniture and other things which require resistance to the elements. While teak is used for outdoor furniture, it is not recommended for full exposure to the sun as this may cause cosmetic damage to the color of the wood. Being more expensive than most other woods, teak furniture has become something of a status symbol. For example, a teak bench, chair, or table may last 70 years with the correct care plan.
Plantation teak wood can be considered eco-friendly due to its long life expectancy. To ensure the reduction of impact teak furniture has to the environment, many forestry companies produce sustainably managed plantation teak. Additionally, teak furniture doesn’t always need to be treated. It is a unique wood that if left in its natural state, is virtually maintenance-free. Teak can be left outside year round, surviving even the most extreme weather conditions. Therefore, teak is often considered the gold standard for outdoor furniture.
Over time however, untreated teak furniture which is exposed to the sun will patina and turn a silvery, grey color. This process is cosmetic and does not harm the strength or quality of the wood.
