Teak continues to be the premier wood used for making outdoor patio furniture.
Many European gardens contain outdoor chairs made of teak that has been outside and in use for 80 100 years.
Teak has a wonderful golden brown color that can be kept throughout its life with yearly coats of an outdoor wood oil. If left it will slowly age and weather to a soft gray.
The very tight grain of teak wood is what makes it so resistant to water damage and insect infestation.
When you are looking to buy an outdoor chair for your garden or patio it is always wise to compare the virtues of items made of teak against other wood furniture.
Teak patio furniture is usually more expensive than other wood furniture but in the long run it may be the last piece of patio furniture you will ever need to buy because of its durability and long life.
