Teak Patio Table - Why You Need One

Do you love to cook outdoors but end up having to dine on makeshift outdoor furniture or maybe even inside because you simply do not have the furniture to properly entertain in your yard, deck or patio? Would you love to find the perfect patio table or set to transform your empty space to an elegant outdoor dining room? If so, maybe you should think about enhancing your outdoor space with a teak patio table.

Teak patio tables are crafted using the finest Javanese teak and come in a wide range of styles that can be easily matched with your personality, décor and budget. Far from just being exquisitely beautiful, teak patio tables and teak furniture are also very functional. In addition to teak tables you can choose teak furnishings such as benches, chairs, tables, swings, dining sets, sofas, chairs, rocking chairs, gliders, and chaise lounges; each one beautifully sculpted and handcrafted for optimal quality and style. You can also accessorize with teak tea carts, planters and spa accessories to create an outdoor entertainment space that dreams are made of.

Teak is often called the premium wood for outdoor furnishings and there are very good reasons why. Teak is a hard strong durable yellowish-brown wood that is both resistant to the elements and requires little maintenance.

Teak grows in the region of Southeast Asia, mainly in Java, Indonesia, and is harvested from the surrounding forests and teak plantations by the locals and the Indonesian government. The wood of the teak tree is naturally resistant to insects, warping, splintering and the elements, which makes it an ideal wood for creating patio tables. With teak patio tables, there is no sealing, no staining, and no finishing.

Left alone, teak furniture weathers to a gorgeous silver color, but if you want to keep the rich, warm color of new teak, you can do so with a little routine maintenance using a teak protector.

Teak furniture can also be purchased in a variety of styles to complement any decor or setting. They include: Chippendale, Derby, cottage, Normandy, Western and rustic, just to name a few. You can choose from pieces that have been handcarved with custom designs, or you can pick out coordinating cushions to add an element of design. The bottom line is: If you want it, you can find it in teak furniture.

When browsing for teak patio tables, you can select individual pieces to customize your space or purchase complete sets. Take for instance the teak patio table of the Amalfi Collection by Kingsley-Bate. This collection features highly styled furnishings designed with elegance and comfort in mind. The wide slats and classic design of the Amalfi teak furniture collection make it a perfect addition to any outdoor space. If you are looking for simple, but elegant outdoor dining furniture, perhaps the Kingsley-Bate Essex Oval Teak Table/Hampton Chair Set is just what you are looking for. Styled with classic lines and comfort in mind, this patio table seats six and can even be accessorized with an umbrella.

The bottom line is that when your patio is accessorized with teak furniture you will create a truly entertaining outdoor space that will be appreciated by all who visit your home.
