Quality Teak

 

One of the most important things to us is that our customers understand the quality of the teak products that we supply them with.

We take great pride in the fact that we source our teak from Thailand which has some of the best Teak in the world, because at the end of it all, it’s our job to provide you with a product that is perfect.

We take the time to find the best quality wood to source, we’re not just saying it, we mean it.
The director of the company Jon Haimes regularly takes trips to Thailand to make sure he is receiving the best quality possible.

So what’s so special about the teak we source?

The secret is within the wood itself. Within the grain of the wood is an abundance of natural oil and this is what makes it such a prized material. Because of these natural oils it has a greater natural resistance to weather than just about any other wood out there.

Incredibly the oil also protects the wood from dry rot, parasites and fungi, all of the usual problems other woods suffer from.

Over time this beautiful wood turns from a honey brown colour to an attractive silvery grey. This is caused by the natural oils building up and protecting the furniture.

Since teak is highly durable, the furniture is guaranteed to last you year after year, this offsets the initial pricing you pay for teak as you don’t have to worry about replacing the furniture or caring for it.

Teak Garden Furniture – The Malvern Collection

Malvern Bench - The Garden furniture Centre

This collection of chairs has to be one of the comfiest on the market today

Majestic in style, you can see the quality of the thick teak used. The backs and base of the chairs are contoured for your support.

Mortice and Tenon joints are used to join the furniture as standard with teak dowels to reinforce them for both long lasting quality and strength, features that aren’t always present in other furniture on the market.

Teak Joints

With some furniture you can find that there’s not much to it, but with the teak furniture you’re getting your monies worth of wood.

You’ll see the Malvern teak chair is particularly chunky and extremely elegant with curves in all the right places, its super smooth and shows the grain beautifully.

From under the Bambrella at Idle Rocks

Bambrella looks good on Idle Rocks …

We are lucky enough to have supplied to many historical, picturesque and generally quite famous places in over 20 years of trading. And perhaps one of the most idyllic of these is The Idle Rocks at St Mawes on Cornwall’s Roseland Peninsula where we supplied a bulk order of Bambrella Parasols for the dining area overlooking the picturesque harbour.
