We need to start with an admission, the title that brought you here is false. There aren’t 5 reasons to buy teak garden furniture. Why? Because there are many reasons to buy luxury teak outdoor furniture, but we’d need a lot more time to go through them all. One thing is true though, you are interested in owning high-quality teak furniture otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this, but you haven’t yet fully committed. We’re here to change that.

Here are 5 reasons to make summer 2017 the year you relax in complete luxury with your new furniture:

 

1.   A Choice Between Form and Function? Not with Teak

When faced with a choice there is usually a trade-off to be made. You either pick something that looks good -- think high-heels, cream carpets, an elaborate hairstyle -- or something that is convenient: running shoes or laminate flooring. Not with teak.

With high-end teak garden furniture, there is no tension between form and function. There is beauty in the wood, intricacy in the curves and dexterity in the craftsmanship, but with a level of durability unmatched by most other wood types.

 

 

2. It Takes Some Work to Maintain

Right now you’re thinking, “How is this a positive? I don’t want to put time and effort into maintenance and care!” Oh but you should.

How often do you get up close to a piece of art to really appreciate the work and skill behind it? Like getting up close to your favourite painting and noticing all the minor brush strokes and layers. Maybe you don’t.

Whether applying a quality teak Patinizer, or just giving it a good clean, you’re bound to appreciate the minor details of your teak furniture set. The seamless nature of its components to it's warm to touch feel.

It may take a little work, but that just makes you appreciate it even more.

 

 

3. You Are Saving the Planet

Did you know that virtually every piece of plastic ever produced still exists in one shape or form today, we only recycle 6% of it according to the American Chemistry Council. Those two facts together don’t paint a healthy picture for the planet. Plastic garden furniture isn’t doing our environment any favours.

Metal furniture isn’t any better. It’s made of steel, of which the world produced 1600 million metric tons in 2015 alone. Did I mention that we mine iron ore (which makes steel) from the earth?

Our plantation teak furniture is sourced from a sustainable, highly regulated region in Java. Eventually, your teak furniture will return its nutrients to the earth and be recycled by the planet. That is true sustainability.

 

 

4. Teak Garden Furniture Ages With You

Undoubtedly the last thing you want to think about is aging, but it’s something we all have to go through. Teak furniture ages too, but unlike our friends and family, it doesn’t complain about it.

Teak furniture ages finely like wine. With time, if left untreated, it turns from its original buttery-gold hue to a sophisticated silver-grey in its transition towards maturity. This natural quality of teak furniture is partly what makes it so attractive as a long-term choice in both outdoor furniture and shipbuilding.
