Teak chairs make great furniture for either outdoor or indoor use. Whatever your purpose, teak gives you solid comfort and durability that you can't get from most other woods. Plus, teak's water-repellant properties put your mind at rest about water damage to your precious new teak chairs!

Teak wood comes from special plantations in Java, Indonesia. Reputable companies that manufacture teak wood furniture buy only the best grade, kiln-dried teak from these plantations. These plantations are run by the Indonesian government, and the best ones practice sustainable foresting.

The Added Value of Teak Chairs

Sustainable foresting basically practices conservation while harvesting trees for human use. In other words, it gives back to the earth what it takes. Teak forests are home to hundreds of varieties of other creatures, from other kinds of plants to mammals and birds.

As you can see, purchasing teak chairs isn't quite as simple as it sounds; it's actually part of a whole chain of events in the teak life cycle. For me, knowing that I'm supporting a good cause when I purchase fine patio furniture makes the experience that much more rewarding.
