When it comes to the best type of garden furniture, teakwood is unquestionably one of the best, as evidenced by the fantastic Rectangular Teak Extending Table Set with Lovina Stacking Chairs.

Providing a spacious table with eight stacking chairs, this set is a wonderful edition to any outdoor space, especially for anyone that loves to entertain guests.

Double butterfly extension leaves are found beneath the rectangular table, allowing it to be extended from an already impressive 180cm x 120cm to a whopping 240cm x 120cm.

This allows for eight people to be seated comfortably, with a set of gorgeous Lovina stacking chairs offering a pleasant place to sit.

The fact that the table can be extended makes the set a real versatile piece. You can easily put away the extension should you only need to seat a few people, pulling it out whenever guests come around.

The chairs can also be easily stored when not in use, snuggly stacking on each other for compact storage.

Manufactured using sustainably sourced grade-A teakwood, this garden furniture set doesn’t just look fantastic, it’s also very strong and durable. With tightly packed grains, teak is one of the strongest woods out there, making it the perfect choice for garden furniture.

The table and chairs will last for many years, showing no signs of wear and tear even when used frequently. Thanks to the natural oils present in teak, the set can be left outside in the rain without taking any sort of damage, with both the table and chairs being fully resistant to water.

Moreover, the table and chairs are very attractive. Teak has a lovely natural tone and the grains are perfectly showcased, meaning you won’t need to use any varnish or stains. The natural colour does change over time, taking on a darker patina hue, which is looks just as attractive as the golden-honey colour it arrives in.

Of course, sitting around a stylish table isn’t much fun unless the chairs are comfortable! The Lovina stacking chairs included with the set offer great back support, and each one comes with a soft cushion (available in several colours) for increased comfort.

The Rectangular Teak Extending Table Set with Lovina Stacking Chairs is a breath-taking garden furniture set that will be the pride and joy of your outdoor living space. The quality is so high that could be the last time you need to buy a set of tables and chairs for your garden!

The Multi-Position Folding Teak Arm Chair is a timeless piece that offers a comfortable spot to sit in your garden.

Nothing beats sitting outside in your garden, which is why it’s always great to have a comfortable chair to sit, which is certainly the case with this folding teak arm chair.

Folding arm chairs have traditionally been associated with special occasions such as weddings and other outdoor occasions, namely for their attractive style and being quite comfortable to sit on. So, it makes perfect sense to have such a fine piece of furniture in your garden that can be enjoyed every day!

A versatile chair, it can be used as a spare seat for any time you have a guest round or as mainstay on your patio or decking. The ability to easily collapse the chair into a compact shape for storage is a great bonus, especially if you’re lacking storage space in your shed or garage.

Should you need it, the chair can be a viable option for indoor use too, as it’s not uncomfortable in the slightest, making it a fine choice should you need an extra seat for a guest indoors.

Better still, the chair has multiple positions, making it easy to find the perfect position to unwind and relax. Whether sitting upright at a table or laying back and reading a book, the chair is suitable for any occasion, with a total of seven positions available to get that sweet spot.

Despite the folding design, the chair is very sturdy. Teak is one of the strongest hardwoods sold, making the perfect choice for garden furniture. It withstands heavy weights with ease, while the wood won’t bend easily or become brittle after time.

It can even be left outside, as teak is water-resistant! These properties help to ensure longevity for the chair, which can last several years or possibly even decades!

Maintenance is minimal too, only needing the odd clean using warm soapy water.

Teak is also a very attractive wood. Arriving in a honey colour that highlights the beautiful grains of the wood, the chair will eventually take on a striking patina-silver tone over time. Either colour looks fantastic in any garden setting, working well with any furniture and décor you already have.

Consider the Multi-Position Folding Teak Arm Chair a great investment for your garden. Strong, durable, and very versatile, expect to get plenty of use from the chair, especially if you enjoy sitting outdoors!

The gorgeous Southold Teak Arm Chair is a fine piece of outdoor furniture that will only enhance your garden space. Despite a simple design, the chair oozes elegance that cannot be easily replicated in a garden chair, thanks in no part to the quality grade-A teak wood used to craft the piece.

Whether you’re looking for a replacement chair for your current table set or simply want a new chair for sitting outside, the Southwold Teak Arm Chair is a fantastic choice. This piece won’t look out of place anywhere in your garden, be it on the patio, decking, or any other spot you like to sit.

Teak is arguable the best material for outdoor furniture, so you can rest easy knowing you’ve invested in a quality piece that will last for some time. As one of the toughest, most durable hardwoods, teak can be left outside for years and still be in great condition – the same can’t be said for most other wooden furniture!

The natural oils present in the Southwold Teak Arm Chair also help to protect from the adverse weather we see so often in Britain. For example, water damage is no issue, as the oils prevent water seeping into the wood where it causes the most damage.

This means the chair won’t become brittle or show signs of water damage, even if left in the rain. Also, the oils prevent damage from wood burrowing insects and other pests, while the densely packed grains result in an impressive weight that provides the chair with superb stability.

Furthermore, the natural strength of the teak ensures that no general wear and tear occurs from frequent use. The back and seat sections won’t bend and warp simply because you use the chair often, highlighting the ever-lasting durability of the Southwold Teak Arm Chair.

The surface of the chair has been sanded to near perfection – running your hand along the surface is a delight! This also helps to ensure the surface remains tough, preventing any lasting stains from developing.

Should there be any mess on the chair, simply wash with a cloth and warm soapy water! It’s literally the only type of maintenance that the chair needs, although you may want to apply a teak sealant if you don’t want the wood to change colour over time.

Teak naturally ages, changing from a warm yellow hue to a colder, silver patina. Most people love the appearance of both so let the wood age naturally, but if you want to maintain the original colour simply apply a sealant once a year.

The Southwold Teak Arm Chair is a wonderful piece of garden furniture that will add beauty and elegance to any outdoor living area!

There are fewer materials better for garden furniture than teak. Durable, strong, and completely water resistant, buying teak garden furniture is a fantastic investment as it will last for dozens of years – with a little love and care that is!

Thankfully, maintaining teak garden furniture is quite easy as it has all the properties you could hope for outdoor furniture. Taking a few moments here and there to care for your furniture guarantees its longevity, so you are probably getting more value for money when maintaining anything made from teak wood.

Here’s everything you need to know to care for your teak garden furniture:

 

Natural oils mean you don’t need to treat it

Teak has natural oils that make it a no-brainer for garden furniture. This includes the ability to prevent damage from wood burrowing insects and being resistant to water damage. That’s right, oils in teak prevent water seeping into the wood, making it completely water-resistant.

So, you can simply leave any teak furniture outside in the rain without worrying about lasting damage developing.

 

Understanding the natural colour of teak

Most people that buy teak garden furniture don’t bother painting or staining it. The main reason for this is simple – teak is naturally attractive. It starts out with a rich golden-honey colour before taking on a deeper silver-patina shade, both of which look stunning in almost any setting.

However, some people prefer one colour to the other, typically looking to restore the golden-honey colour to aged teak. If this is the case, the most effective way to restore the previous colour is to sand and rinse the surface of the wood.

 

Avoid treating your teak furniture with teak oil

A common misconception is that teak oil used to treat furniture is the same oil present inside the wood, which simply isn’t the case. Teak oils sold separately are made from solutions that feature no teak oil, meaning you want to avoid using them.

The reason for this is because this reduces the effect of the natural oils in teak. By applying teak oil, you make it less naturally resistance, as the wood now relies on the new oil to maintain its condition, meaning regular treatment is necessary.

Teak oil is only ever a temporary treatment. Yes, it can restore a natural colour to the wood, but this only temporary, so you’ll always have to continue treatment to keep it in good condition. Teak oil may even encourage fungal growth and unsightly black spots on the surface, completely ruining the appearance of your furniture.

 

Teak sealer is a suitable treatment

If you want to treat your teak garden furniture, be sure to use teak sealer rather than teak oil. As a water-based product, it doesn’t cause any damage to the natural oils of the teak, rather being used to stop the natural oils evaporating.

So, teak sealer is a suitable option for maintaining your furniture, although it only needs to be applied around once a year. This will maintain the golden-honey colour of fresh teak, and if you want the wood to start aging to take on the silver-patina colour, simply stop applying the sealer.
