One of the most common questions buyers have when designing their exterior entertainment areas is how long will Teak outdoor furniture last? They’re often quite shocked when we tell them that they can expect their new setting to last for up to a century when cared for properly but this material is quite durable so that’s certainly an achievable benchmark.

While the actual lifespan of your new setting will depend on many factors such as how often it’s used and how well cared for it is, this type of wood is known for quite happily lasting decades so you can bring your new pieces home with total confidence.

What types of teak outdoor furniture are available?

When it comes to the types of pieces available, dining sets are generally most common, however, loungers, bars, storage and many other types of accessories are also easy to find. If you’re looking to create a cohesive design, we suggest matching a lounger or two and a storage chest with your dining set so you can easily make different zones flow, however, the choice is yours.

You can also have custom pieces created if you’re looking for something that isn’t easy to purchase pre-made so your imagination is the only real limitation to the type of item you can find.
