Tectona Grandis, otherwise known as teak wood, ticks all the boxes.

All of these reasons support why the teak pieces from Easterly are your best choice for indoor and outdoor furniture for your home or business.


For hundreds of years, teak has been a favorite with shipbuilders, furniture makers, and woodworkers. Teak naturally resists moisture, insects, cracking and warping. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor applications, while teak wood’s rich exotic grain makes it highly desirable for designers and interior decorators.

Teak is a deciduous hardwood tree indigenous to Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Burma

Teak is extremely dense-grained and highly resistant to rot, warping, shrinkage and swelling

Its high natural oil content acts as a natural preservative to the wood so it can be left outdoors for years


Over time it develops a silvery gray appearance that can be left in its natural state or restored to its former beauty with a light sanding or the application of wood oil. Teak is very smooth to the touch and does not splinter. It remains very neutral in temperature compared to plastic or metal furniture and has a faint, pleasant aromatic smell. Well made teak outdoor furniture is typically classic in design with clean architectural lines and timeless style. This is an important attribute for something you could expect to have in your outdoor area for years.


Easterly furniture is made from harvested trees grown on plantations following sustainable-yield practices. This process is managed by the Indonesian government agency, tasked with preserving this natural resource for generations to come. Cheaper products are available from non-regenerating resources.
