There's a reason teak outdoor furniture is so popular. Anyone who has lugged patio furniture into storage, purchased expensive "winter slip covers", or just left the furniture outside only to discover that it was ruined after two seasons of use, can appreciate the easy maintenance of teak outdoor furniture.
If you wish to preserve the Golden color of teak, you may apply Teak oil to the product once or twice a year (when you notice fading). If you do not apply any teak oil the wood will bleach to a silvery color as seen below.

03/01/16 - Thank you for the teak oil recommendation. My husband had been thinking about it - your recommendation pushed us to do it and we did yesterday. Attached are a couple of finished product pictures - also a picture of two chairs side by side with one oiled and one waiting to be oiled - what a difference!!!!!!!! Thanks again for a fantastic table, chairs and cushions.
02/27/16 - Last week our expansion table with 4 Tisbury stackable arm chairs and cushions (brown with cream piping) were delivered from our shipper. We absolutely love it all! Assembly of the chairs and table was easy (it took me longer to cut up all the boxes than it took for my husband to put everything together!) The table expands very smoothly. The cushions were custom with cream piping on the brown cushion and it just really adds so much to the appearance of the cushions. Shipment from MA was quicker than we originally expected which was fantastic since we still had to wait the time it took for everything to come on the ship and then clear customs. Goldenteak was wonderful to work with. K&D C, Christiansted, USVI (Teak Round Extension Table (103), Tisbury Stacking Chairs (TS-1A-4)) - See customer photo here.
