Teak wood is another excellent option for outdoor furniture. Naturally, teak wood exhibits certain attributes that make it a unique option such as: durability and waxiness. The main advantage of the teak wood over the kwila wood is its ready availability and affordability (although, teak wood could also be expensive).Teak also scientifically known as Tectona Grandis is mostly gotten from South East Asia. The tree trunk’s center contains high quality wood with richer golden color. Another specie of teak is known as the Pacific teak which loses its color over time and turns to gray, but with a little furniture oil, the wood can easily be restored.

- Stainless Steel
Compared to plastic and wood, stainless steel furniture remains stronger than both and requires extra care. The durability of stainless steel furniture can be increased via several processes including Electro-polishing.

Stainless steel furniture that does not undergo treatments is highly prone stains and contamination through oxidization. Slightly cheaper stainless steels are known to be untreated and should be avoided. In order to increase the life span of your stainless steel furniture, regular maintenance is essential.
