Benefits of Teak Outdoor Furniture

In addition to its stunning appearance, there are many reasons why people love teak outdoor furniture in 2017:

  • No Sealers Required – Teak is a naturally oily wood, so there is no need to have to treat the teak regularly to keep it intact. If you simply let the teak outdoor furniture sit, it will gradually turn a beautiful silver grey that is just as alluring as its original golden hue. However, if you do prefer the teak in its newborn color, you can give it a quick touchup with sealer once per year to prevent the pigments from fading.
  • Resistant to Weather – Teak is also very resistant to any kind of damage from weather, including rotting, cracking, or breaking. You can feel confident placing teak on your patio, knowing that it will still look just as fantastic in several years.

Types of Gloster Teak Outdoor Furniture

Teak outdoor furniture consists of so much more than Adirondack chairs. The Gloster lineup features large and small dining sets with both sling and cushion chairs, deep seating collections, chaise lounges, benches, and occasional tables. Their individual collections range from ultra-modern-paired-with-metal designs to more traditional styles with thicker teak cuts and curved arms—and every single one is gorgeous in its own right. In short: You are all-but-guaranteed to find something from Gloster that will fit your style preferences and your entertaining needs.
