Teak wood is one of the most intriguing outdoor categories. Teak is naturally rot and insect resistant, making it extremely durable and impervious to the weather. Left unattended, teak will weather naturally to a lovely silver grey color. If you want to maintain the original look, please check with an Outdoor Specialist at The Patio Shop or with the manufacturer for specific instructions.
Ipe wood comes from the Chiquitania tropical dry forests of Bolivia. Because of the nature of these forests, trees grow very slowly, producing some of the world’s strongest and most durable timber species.
Ipe outdoor furniture made of 100% heartwood is critical for maintaining the long-term strength and integrity of the mortise and tenon joinery throughout the seasonal extremities of freeze and thaw, and extended wet and dry periods.
The Patio Shop buys only from manufacturers whose teak comes from controlled harvesting practices which protect our environment.
