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.

Teak folding stool that can be used as side table or seat inside and outdoors
Crafted from rich teak, the Fionia Folding Stool is a practical accent piece that can be used as a side table or, in a pinch, an extra place to sit. The stool is constructed with hinges so it is easy to fold and transport to a new location, or put away in storage. 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.

Elegant and classic foldable lounge chair with leather headrest
Constructed with 88 meticulously placed teak pieces, the Nozib Teak Lounger is both sleek and airy. The sturdy chair includes a water-resistant leather cushion that can be adjusted or removed. When not in use, the elegant lounger can be folded.

Folding teak and canvas lounge chair with adjustable frame
The H55 Easy Chair is crafted in teak, fabric, and stainless steel. The chair features an adjustable frame that can be raised or lowered to create your desired level of lounging. The drape of the fabric creates a hammock-style seat, and the sturdy frame adds stability.

Teak and chrome petanque bocce set for outdoor play
A beautifully designed version of the classic lawn game, Pétanque—a French version of Italy's bocce—the Akiko Petanque set includes a set of six chrome boule balls and a target ball, packaged in a teak box for storing and carrying the game. The box has a hinged cover with a rectangular cut-out, so the teak handle can be used when the box is closed.
