Known for its durability and water resistance, teak is a tropical hardwood commonly used in outdoor furniture. The wood features a high oil content, tensile strength, and a tight grain, making it a versatile material. Over time, teak can develop a silvery grey patina, or can be re-oiled to maintain its rich golden luster. Check out these seven teak furnishings and accessories from the Dwell Store.

Versatile and innovative teak lounger that can convert to bench or table
The versatile Riviera Teak Sunbed from Skagerak is an outdoor furniture piece that can be used as a chaise lounge, bench, or low table. Featuring a classic fence-like design, the Riviera has a light, airy quality perfect for a patio or garden. The Riviera can expand and contract to different lengths, making it adaptable to a variety of settings and scenarios.

The clean design of the stool allows it to blend in to a variety of spaces, both indoors and out. Also available in a black finish.

Folding chair made from teak and canvas for indoor and outdoor use
The Kryss Chair from Skargaarden was designed for the Swedish Embassy in 1975. It features a foldable teak frame and a fabric seat and back. The inspiration for the chair was from the discovery of folding chairs in King Tut’s ancient tomb. The Kryss series also includes a folding table, available at the Dwell Store.

Teak dining table for outdoor and indoor settings that can sit two to four guests
The Oxnö Dining Table is crafted in a warm teak and can sit two people comfortably for dinner, or can be used as a cocktail table to seat four. The table can be oiled once a year to retain the rich teak color, or left alone to develop a silvery grey patina over time. Skargaarden’s Oxnö series also includes an armchair.
