About Teak Furniture

Teak is a tropical hardwood native to South and South East Asia but is also grown elsewhere in Africa and the Caribbean. It is a dense wood with a fine grain containing natural oils which make it extremely resistant to water and weather damage. This has made it a timber of choice for many outside applications such as boat decks, door and window frames, garden furniture and decking.

But its durability means teak has also found many indoor applications such as kitchen counter tops, cutting boards and flooring. Its strength also means it can be used structurally within buildings, such as supporting roof beams.

When used to make indoor teak furniture, it offers an attractive appearance due to its grain and its warm yellow-brown colour. Teak is hard enough to cause blunting of metal tools used for cutting and working the wood, so it easily withstands the knocks and bumps of everyday life. Teak furniture is, therefore, likely to last for a long time and keep its looks for many years.

The 4 Living teak range is all made using FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood. This means that the wood is sourced from well managed forests, where all trees harvested are replaced or allowed to regrow naturally, and where rare animals or indigenous peoples living in the forest are protected. Buying FSC certified products, such as furniture or paper, means that as a consumer you are not contributing to the deforestation of the planet, and are helping to promote sustainable and ethical businesses.

All our teak furniture is made from untreated teak wood. No paint or varnish means no toxic chemicals involved in the manufacturing process.

But being eco friendly isn’t just about how a product is manufactured – it’s also about how long it lasts and whether it is likely to contribute to landfill any time soon. Our teak furniture range is built from solid teak and with its contemporary yet timeless designs these are pieces which will still be in use in 50 years time, if not more. This is eco friendly furniture to love for a lifetime.

The 4 Living Teak Range

We have teak bedroom, living room and dining room furniture all made with the same clean and simple lines.

Teak has an extremely nourished grain, so it works really well as part of a rustic and natural style design. Solid teak slats across the face of a headboard, nightstand or wardrobe are a really unique and stylish contemporary design feature.

Teak also suits more refined contemporary designs and, unlike some of the more traditional woods, is incredibly hard-wearing and long-lasting. The durability of teak will ensure that a piece, such as a contemporary teak bed, could last a life time if cared for properly.

A number of teak cabinets in a slatted style enable you to choose exactly the right amount of storage for your needs. A stylish teak wardrobe is a spacious and functional contemporary bedroom addition. Having both hanging rails and shelves enables you to customise the layout of your clothes, accessories and shoes. 4 Living’s contemporary teak bedroom range also includes elegant chests of drawers and a unique and practical shoe storage cabinet. The teak range is punctuated with a slim teak locker. With a small floor footprint, this offers truly space saving storage, and could also be used in a bathroom or landing to provide communal storage.

A Stylish, Functional Choice for your Kitchen and Dining Room

A chunky contemporary teak dining table will provide you with the everyday usability and functionality you would expect, but with the added bonus of a unique and beautiful contemporary design. Matching teak chairs are the perfect way to round off the set and to provide your dining room with a contemporary symmetry and balance.

A teak bar table is a great way to create an informal and sociable atmosphere in your kitchen or dining room, while a high table with matching stools will really show off the grain of the teak.

All items are available to order online and include free delivery and free returns in the event that you change your mind.
