Teak has a naturally high oil content which makes it both stable and resistant to rot and over drying when exposed over many years to extreme summer and winter weather. For several centuries, these special qualities have made teak wood preferred for marine decking and shipyard construction. Today, teak is the premium timber for outdoor furniture.


Freshly cut teak wood is a warm golden brown color. When left outdoors, teak naturally fades to a soft, silvery gray color. If you would like to maintain the blonde color of the new wood, regular application of teak oil is necessary. If you prefer the silvery gray color, no treatment is needed. Simply clean the wood with mild soap and water when necessary. Teak wood will last for decades no matter what color you choose.

Items made of select Indonesian Hardwood are durable and tough, therefore suitable for outdoor use. Please note that the hardwood will weather when exposed to the elements. This weathering, which may occur almost immediately, is a natural reaction caused by exposure of the wood to sun and rain. The hardwood product will turn to a beautiful silver/grey color and natural splitting and cracks will appear when weathered. The weathering does not affect the durability of the furniture.


The furniture has been oiled before packing. To maintain the look and to prolong the life of your furniture, Teak oil should be applied every 6 months. Alternatively, you may apply your own stain after the wood has dried and turned silver/grey. Hardwood surface should be cleaned with mild soap and water when necessary.
