Why buy teak furniture in NZ?

There is little doubt that teak will look beautiful sitting in your outside space. Teak wood outdoor furniture is a great choice, and let’s look at some of the reasons why.


Teak is one of the strongest and most durable hardwoods, and because of teak’s high natural oil content and the tight wood grain, it stands up well to both as rain and sun. It contains oils that repel water, and this means that it is less likely to crack or warp. For added peace of mind, our teak frames come with a 5-year warranty against defects in material and workmanship.


Teak is extremely versatile. 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.


Teak is a naturally beautiful timber with golden-brown tones and tight, typically straight, grain and varying textures. There are a few popular options for teak finishes: natural/unfinished, sealed or oiled.

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 the teak’s 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.

For most outdoor furniture, you need to do a lot of treatment and upkeep to ensure that the wood stays looking good for many years. Teak, on the other hand, requires little maintenance even if left uncovered outdoors. It 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. Afterward, simply rinse it with clean water. 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.


Teak is one of the most superior performing timbers, so it’s likely you won’t have to replace it as early as many other inferior timber pieces. Teak furniture is well worth the investment. With teak, 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.  Unfortunately, these practices continue today but 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 thta 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.
