Teak wood is one of the most valuable and durable timbers worldwide. It is practically weather-resistant and is used for shipbuilding, fine furniture, door and window frames, wharves, bridges, floors and wall panels; however, it is often overlooked as an outdoor furniture construction material. Teak wood’s high rubber content and natural resistance to heat, water and frost makes it an ideal material for outdoor patio furniture.

It adds character and elegance to your outdoor or patio design through a blending of nature and man-made elements which provide an outstanding aesthetic presentation to any yard.
