Appearance

Teak is regarded as one of the most beautiful, high-quality woods manufactured today. The dense, straight grain pattern bestowed a sense of intricacy, coupled with a rich golden-amber colour, making teak wood an excellent choice to be made as a furniture. Each piece of teak holds a unique natural fingerprint, making each teak made furniture a unique piece. The pulchritude is complimented with the distinctive aromatic scent of teak.

Durability

Teak is widely renowned for its durability and its’ resistance to rotting. Teak wood is a hardwood obtained from broad leaved deciduous trees, with that it is exceptionally strong. With proper care, teak furniture is able to last for many years (in many cases over 100 years). With its high level of resinous oil, it gives the teak made furniture high resistance to moisture and water, and also able to act as a natural insect repellent, repelling termites. A survey was carried out in 2000, ranking teak as one of the best performing woods for resisting crack and warping under different humidity and temperature conditions.
