Teak Furniture

Teak Furniture

Teak furniture has been very highly valued for centuries, and it is clear to see why. Teak is one of the hardest woods available and is extremely resistant to rotting and cracking; this makes it extremely durable and consequently very popular as furniture.

Teak Furniture or Teak Oil

Teak furniture is extremely attractive. Teak furniture has a natural beauty and is as famous as its durability. This is due, in part, to its colour. It has a reddish-yellow caramel tinge. This produces a piece with a warm glow and rich colour, which brings both style and a cosy feel to the room. Teak furniture is quite expensive, and an easy way to emulate the look of teak is to use mango wood that has been stained with teak oil; to the untrained eye this is indistinguishable from teak furniture. The swirls in the mango wood have a beautiful combination of colours, just like teak furniture. High quality teak oil can also be used to stain a piece of solid oak furniture to the stunning colour of teak to produce a beautiful piece of oak furniture.

Do Not Buy Cheap Teak Furniture

If you are purchasing teak furniture it is important to ensure that the timber is of a high quality. Low quality teak only contains a small amount of natural teak oil, which is crucial for producing fine quality furniture and ensuring the piece of teak furniture does not rot. It is advisable not to buy discount teak furniture, as you cannot be sure of the quality. That is why the option of solid mango furniture with a teak oil stain is a better bet for someone with a limited budget, or looking for some bargain furniture.

Alternatives to Teak Furniture

A teak finish to mango furniture can also provide a rustic quality to the solid wood furniture. This brings a traditional and stylish feel to the piece. The colour of teak furniture looks striking on a variety of different solid wood furniture pieces. It is extremely popular with patio furniture due to its durability; however, it also brings a classic look to pieces such as mango wood stained teak living room furniture, dining tables, computer desks and dining chairs. Mango wood stained teak furniture works particularly well as office furniture where it gives a grand look, there are a selection of mango wood stained teak computer desks, bookcases and other items that will bring a traditional quality to the room.

Most teak furniture designs very classic and simple; the pieces are not fussy or swamped with details. If you want more contemporary and modern furniture it is advisable to use solid oak furniture, or natural solid mango furniture, for instance, which can give an Indian furniture style. The classic nature of teak furniture, indeed all solid wood furniture, means that it will never go out of fashion.

Teak furniture is extremely popular and a good option for those wishing to purchase a classic stylish piece and have a very large budget to ensure very high quality furniture. Teak oiled mango furniture has a warm rich glow with beautiful colours and great durability making it ideal for any home, and need not be so critically inspected, as mango wood is far more consistent and reliable. Other alternatives to teak furniture are rustic oak furniture and mahogany furniture.
