Casual Living Patio Furniture

 

We are going to look at the Teak Wood Casual Living Patio Furniture sets that are available in the Brianna line from Serenityhealth. The information will help you decide on what will work for your outdoor space and how to keep your furniture looking new for a long time. You will need a big casual area for these sets as they will not sit well all crammed together.

One of these sets will allow you to enjoy years of entertainment for your guest.  You can also use these furniture sets indoors as well. You could have them indoors and when you have a big outdoor bash, just move outdoors for the party.  Before we look at these sets, let us find out what Teak furniture is and why do we need to have this high grade wood in our outdoor space.

 

What is Teak Wood and Why do we need it for our outdoor furniture

 

Teak Wood TreeThe first use of Teak Wood was for decks and railings on sailing ships.  The wood keep up so well, when the ships were scraped much of the wood was used to make furniture for use outdoors. Much of this fine furniture is still in use today. The teak wood decks of the Titanic are still in great shape today after over 100 years under the sea.  Imagine how your furniture will look in 100 years, even if you do not live under the water.

Teak Wood comes from the Teak tree that is mostly found in dry hilly terrains in Southeast Asia.  It grows very slowly and most of the trees that are used are commercially grown on tree farms in Indonesia. It takes about 50 years to grow and harvest a Teak wood tree.

The natural oils in this wood will keep it from splitting, rotting, termite or other insect damage or fungi and mildew.  Teak wood will remain the same shape and size as it will not shrink over time like other woods.

Teak wood  can be left to age in the sun to a Silver Gray color or if you keep your furniture out of the sunlight it will remain the original honey blond color.  Re-oiling with natural oils will retain the original color.  Staining or varnishing can bring this color to shinny finish that will last.  As you can see you can make your fine furniture the color you desire over time.

Brianna Color PatternsWhat about the furniture that is in this post?  The furniture comes unassembled (the wood parts) and is easy to assemble.  The 8 inch thick Sunbrella cushions that come with the furniture can be ordered in 42 different styles that will last outdoors without mildew, and minimal discoloration.  The mortise and tenon joinery will give your furniture the strength to last a lifetime.  This furniture will bring the comfort of your indoor space to your outdoor space.

Care for your Teak Wood Outdoor Furniture

 

You will only use mild soap and water to clean up the surface of your fine Teak furniture, any other harsh chemicals or oils will shorten the life of the finish.  Salt water is used by many of the boat experts to clean the surface, as this prevents it from drying out, mildew, algal growth or shrinking.  The salt water helps to retain the oils that are just below the surface.

Do not use a pressure washer or hard bristled brush to clean the surface of your furniture.  This will permanently damage the wood.

Teak Wood Stages

Old Cleaned New

Teak – to Weather or Not to Weather?

 

Left outdoors, and will mellow to a gray silver patina.  If you have to sand a damaged area, the color of the wood uncovered may be different that the surface if you have let your wood age.

If you are going to use an oil to keep the color of the wood, use linsed or tung oil, this will give you the best results.

You can varnish your furniture, this will give a Deep shinny finish that will last.

As you can see, you can make your teak furniture match your outdoor space and it will retain the color that you choose with little maintenance.
