The Origins of Goldenteak: From 1996 to Present

The Founding of Goldenteak

Goldenteak was established in the year 1996 with a simple but ambitious goal: to bring high-quality, durable, and sustainable teak outdoor furniture to customers across the world. Since then, we’ve operated a successful retail, wholesale, and internet business, making us a direct importer and distributor of Teak Outdoor Furniture and Teak Patio Furniture products. We didn’t just want to be another furniture company; we wanted to set a new standard in the industry.

Goldenteak’s Growth and Expansion

Over the years, our unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction propelled our growth and expansion. Our teak furniture became popular among customers who appreciated the exceptional strength, durability, and beauty of our Grade A Plantation grown teak wood products. This includes a wide range of items such as teak chairs, tables, loungers, benches, and steamer chairs, among others.

Today, we’ve expanded our reach to serve customers in various locations, including New York, Hamptons, Long Island, Miami, West Palm Beach, and Ft. Lauderdale.

Goldenteak’s Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

As Goldenteak grew, so did our commitment to ensuring customer satisfaction. This commitment is not just about providing high-quality outdoor teak furniture, it’s about creating a memorable shopping experience for each customer. We’ve made our online store secure, ensuring worry-free online shopping. If customers have concerns about purchasing online, we provide assistance through our contact number, (978) 689 4041.

We’re proud of the fact that much of our business comes from word of mouth and repeat customers. We believe that a satisfied customer is the best form of advertising. Our customers have kindly sent us reviews and photos of their installations, which stand as a testament to our commitment to quality and service.

As we look back at our journey from 1996 to the present, we’re proud of the growth we’ve achieved and the reputation we’ve built. But more than that, we’re excited about the future and the opportunity to continue serving our customers with the best teak outdoor furniture in the market.

The Goldenteak Difference: Quality and Sustainability

When speaking of teak outdoor furniture, Goldenteak is synonymous with quality and sustainability. Our commitment to these principles is evident in every piece of furniture we create. We believe that our customers deserve the best, and that’s exactly what we deliver.

The Use of Grade A Plantation Grown Teak Wood

At the heart of our furniture lies our teak wood – but not just any teak wood. We only use Grade A Plantation Grown Teak Wood. This is the highest quality teak wood that comes from the heart of the tree, known as heartwood, which is much stronger and less porous compared to sapwood that is often used in lower grade teak.

Our use of Grade A teak ensures our furniture is less prone to decay and insect damage, contributing to the longevity and durability that Goldenteak is known for.

The Importance of Sustainable Harvesting in Goldenteak’s Operations

We understand the value of sustainability, and our operations reflect this. Since 1996, Goldenteak has only used plantation grown teak wood that has been sustainably harvested. This means that our teak wood is grown and harvested in a way that ensures the long-term health and productivity of the forest it comes from.

In many countries, teak wood is harvested illegally, causing deforestation and ecological chaos. We are proud to say that we do not support these practices. Goldenteak’s commitment to sustainability ensures that our business practices are environmentally responsible and contribute to the preservation of our planet’s resources.

The Superior Quality of Goldenteak’s Furniture: No Stains, No Paints, Just Natural Fine Sanded Finish

Our approach to furniture making is simple: Let the natural beauty of teak wood shine through. We NEVER stain or paint our product. Instead, we offer it in a buttery smooth natural fine sanded finish.

Many companies use inferior quality wood and cover it up with stains or paints. But not us. At Goldenteak, we let the premium quality of our wood speak for itself. Our wood has nothing to hide!


At Goldenteak, we’re proud of our commitment to quality and sustainability. We believe that these principles are not just good for business, but also good for our planet. When you invest in Goldenteak, you’re not just buying a piece of furniture – you’re investing in a product that is built to last and made with the environment in mind. And that’s the Goldenteak difference.

Goldenteak’s Unique Manufacturing Process

At Goldenteak, our commitment to quality is evident in every piece of furniture we make. Our manufacturing process is designed to produce premium outdoor teak furniture that is not only beautiful and durable but also environmentally friendly.

The Use of Thick Sections of Wood and No Fingerjointing

We start by choosing the highest quality of teak wood – Solid Grade A Teak Wood, sustainably harvested from renewable Government Plantations in Indonesia. This wood is known for its durability and resistance to weather, making it perfect for outdoor furniture. We use thick sections of wood for load-bearing timbers, thick table tops, and thick frames for our chairs. This results in sturdy furniture that can withstand the test of time and elements.

Unlike many manufacturers, we never employ fingerjointing in our chairs and benches. Fingerjointing involves using smaller sections of wood to create a larger piece. This method might save money, but it results in a weaker joint and non-matching colors at the joint. We use solid pieces of wood to ensure the strength and uniformity of our furniture.

The Use of Mortise and Tenon Joinery and Machine Made Construction

Our commitment to quality extends to the way we join the pieces of wood together. We rely on traditional mortise and tenon joinery, a method known for its superior strength and durability. The tenons are secured in the mortises with teak dowels or screws as appropriate.

In addition, all our furniture is fully machine-made. This method is about 50% more expensive in Indonesia, but it results in more precise, high-quality products. Machine made products are also easier to assemble, allow for part interchangeability, and make it possible for us to ship these products flat pack assembled. This means that if you experience shipping damage, we have replacement parts that will fit perfectly.

The Use of Brass or Stainless Steel Hardware for Exposed Sections

Finally, we use high-quality hardware for the exposed sections of our furniture. Depending on the product, we use either brass or stainless steel. Both materials are known for their durability, and they resist rust and corrosion, making them ideal for outdoor use.

By paying attention to every detail and refusing to compromise on quality, we at Goldenteak deliver outdoor furniture that excels in both form and function. Our unique manufacturing process ensures that our customers receive furniture that will stand the test of time, providing comfort and style for years to come.
