Teak Furniture Buying Guide

Teak History:

Originally from Southeast Asia, the teak tree lives on average 100 years. Indonesian teak is considered the highest quality in the world. Teak prides itself on its longevity and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Teak tree resin produces natural oils that are incredibly water-resistant. These oils protect the tree from corrosion, termites and other damaging factors. Teak combines strength, rich color and an unmatchable lifespan, making it a sought-out wood for outdoor furniture design. teak deep seating sofa

The largest producer of Indonesian teak is located on Java Island. Java Island's climate and geographical location make it an ideal spot for teak forests. The Indonesian Government manages and monitors teak wood and supplies it for export. Manufacturing teak wood is a timely process, which is why furniture workers from across the world are employed at Java Island to raise and turn teak trees into gorgeous teak furniture. The longer the tree lives, the better. Teak trees that live longer than 40 years are sliced at the bottom so water can drain from the wood. This draining process takes up to two years. Once the tree dries out, it is transformed into beautiful prestigious furniture.

Teak's popularity expands worldwide. India and Denmark use teak as their main resource for wood. The increase in demand and decrease in supply makes teak wood a highly-pursued and valuable product.

Teak Benefits:

Teak endures all weather conditions, repels insects and does not split, crack or corrode. The beauty of teak is another advantage. The natural glow from the high oil content is seen year round and survives an extended period of time. Teak wood maintains itself. Cruise ships, furniture lovers and craftsman chose teak because its strength, quality, appearance and lifespan is unsurpassed.

Take Cleaning Info and Furniture Care:

Teak furniture maintains itself, but occasional polishing is recommended to preserve the natural honey tones in the wood.

The cleaner is 100 percent biodegradable, water-based and non-toxic. This cleaner is easily applied and only needed periodically to replenish the honey color in the wood.
