All you need to know about buying about teak outdoor furniture in Auckland

Thinking about buying teak outdoor furniture?

If you are looking for furniture for your great outdoors, you’ve probably considered a teak table, chairs, sofa, or corner setting, so let Modern Style outfit your outdoor space with the teak furniture you need.

Teak doesn’t just look great, it is the most durable and strongest hardwood used in furniture making. Capable of remaining outdoors in all elements, teak wood won’t rot or cause you any of the problems that other wooden materials can. Teak’s weather resistant properties mean it is often the timber of choice from ships to furniture.

Whether you want to dine al fresco, create an outdoor room on the deck, develop an outdoor oasis in the garden or lounge poolside, teak is the perfect choice.

Talk to us about teak outdoor furniture to jazz up your Auckland home or business.



Why buy teak furniture in NZ?

Teak is one of our most popular materials for outdoor furniture, so let’s take a look at some of the advantages of teak outdoor furniture. Teak wood outdoor furniture is a great choice and will look beautiful sitting in your outside space, but let’s expand on some of the reasons why.

Block Teak outdoor furniture

No other wood combines durability and aesthetics quite like teak. Because of its high natural oil content and the tight wood grain, teak is one of the strongest and most durable hardwoods out there. It rarely warps or cracks when exposed to heavy rain, hot sun or even hailstorms. It naturally produces rubber and oils that keep it from rotting. The natural oils also protect against insects. There truly is no weather it can’t handle, even the stuff we get in Auckland! For added peace of mind, our teak frames come with a 5-year warranty against defects in material and workmanship.


Teak is extremely versatile, and we have a range of gorgeous tables, bench seats, chairs, coffee tables and sun lounges all made using teak. Teak can also be left natural, painted, stained, waxed, or varnished depending on the style of the furniture and your individual taste preferences. No matter what the look you’re wanting to achieve at your place, with teak it will work.


Furniture made of teak is extremely easy to maintain, making it an easy choice. A naturally beautiful timber, it has golden-brown tones and tight, typically straight, grain and varying textures.

Left to naturally weather, teak will turn into a beautiful silvery grey. If you like this look, all you need to do is sit back and wait and your outdoor furniture will grey within a couple of months. If you wish to maintain its natural warm brown tones, you’ll need to oil your furniture once or twice a year to preserve the colour. All oils are not created equal, so talk to us about the best products to take care of your teak furniture.

Even if left uncovered outdoors, your teak furniture will just require a general brush down and clean with a mild soap and water solution to remove the dust, dirt, or other stains on the wood. If you’re having trouble with tough stains, such as grease, you can also use a teak cleaner to help lift grease stains and leave the wood looking good as new.


Considering it is probably the only outdoor furniture you’ll ever need to buy, teak is worth the investment. Some grades can last up to 30 years, so you can pass it on to your kids and maybe even your grandchildren. Teak may well be more expensive than many other timbers but it’s worth it, and our LIFE Outdoor Living range is made from recycled teak, so you can feel good that you are reusing precious wood and doing your bit to help the environment.


Teak is sustainably farmed. When teak was first made popular, the high demand caused deforestation and the exploitation of indigenous and local people. Teak is now also grown and harvested on plantations. Modern Style Outdoor Furniture is proud to offer a selection of recycled, teak and certified teak from a plantation that has been proven to follow stringent requirements in growth, harvesting, and dealing with employees. We only deal with products that are of the highest quality from start to finish.
