Teak has been a perfect choice for making outdoor furnishings because of its shine, color and durability. There is a high content of natural oils in teak which protects the wood from water, insects and weather ensuring a long life for your outdoor furniture. Teak is a very expensive wood so ensure that the wood you are buying is FSC certified so that it is environmental friendly. When teak is exposed to the elements of nature it starts turning gray but if you want to prevent this happening you can get your teak oiled. Oiling can prevent fading teak outdoor furniture to some extent.
Teakwood is an indigenous wood found in many countries all over the world but the quality differs as far as color or grains or durability is concerned. Teak outdoor furniture comes in a large range that includes coffee tables, loveseats, chairs, stools, tables and sofa sets. These furniture items made from teak are decay and weather resistant. Teak wood is usually kiln dried before the furniture is made. Teak patio furniture and dining sets come in five or seven pieces. The chairs at the head of the table are with arms while the chairs at the sides are without arms. A reclining dining chair or a rocking chair made out of teak looks really elegant. Cushion options for teak furniture can be of any color as all colors will look good with the color of teak.
