Teak is a close-grained hardwood with a high natural oil content which gives the teak furniture a beautiful smooth surface. Teak furniture is hard-wearing and highly resistant to decay and almost immune to rain, frost, snow or sun.
When you choose slow-growing teak from a certified plantation, you get extremely high-quality timber. Teak is the only wood that can withstand sun, rain and wind for many years without losing its looks – but teak also has another coveted bonus: “You can keep the teak we use for 50 years and never have to give it the slightest drop of oil. The quality is that good. Then it has a warm natural glow so the furniture blends seamlessly into the outdoor environment”, says design duo Foersom & Hiort-Lorenzen MDD, who designed Endless. Teak patinates to an attractive light grey colour. If you oil teak, it retains its golden glow.
Cane-line’s teak is supplied from WWF-GFTN members in Indonesia, whose teak originates from Perhutani. This means our teak comes from responsibly managed forests. Teak being a scarce resource, Cane-line aims to only use it for a selected number of products. These are designed in terms of durability and style to last a long time.
