Teak patio furniture is a great option for any outdoor space, due to its durability and attractiveness. If you're designing a patio or outdoor living space, you may want to investigate the many options available to you for teak patio furniture.

Aside from its attractive natural color, teak furniture offers the benefit of great durability in all weather conditions. It's highly resistant to mold and moisture, and it ages well over time.

Blending the Indoors and Out

Don't worry - this wing-back furniture may look like it's meant to stay in a living room, but it's made to withstand rain and other outdoor elements. The Barcelona collection by Summer Classics features upholstered side and back panels in Sunbrella Suntan Textilene fabric.

In Motion

Swivel chairs may seem old school, but they are sought after by homeowners, say furniture makers. The swivel rocker in Lloyd Flanders' Nova Collection, which was designed by Matthias Hoffman and introduced for 2015, allows people to join the conversation and soak up any water, mountain or other views.

Prepared for Crowds

Outdoor dining tables are getting larger, showing the emphasis on entertaining and eating meals al fresco, says Bew White, president of Summer Classics, an Alabama-based outdoor furniture manufacturer. Now tables are able to comfortably seat eight or more people, as long as there's space on a porch or patio.

Iconic Design

The new Lilly Pulitzer line for Target, which launches in April 2015 with home decor and other items in lively prints, adds to the bold prints seen in outdoor furniture and textile showrooms at AmericasMart Atlanta.

Playful Patterns

Consider yourself lucky that manufacturers are coming out each year with new patterns and accessories to update your outdoor furniture. The four-leaf clover is the star of the expanded Trefle collection by Fermob, on its white woven Sixties bench, and yes, the accessories can be used well past St. Patrick's Day. 

Vintage Seat

A tractor seat adds a vintage vibe that's always going to be a conversation starter when entertaining outdoors.

If you're considering a teak patio furniture set, first make sure you measure your outdoor space and compare it to the dimensions of the furniture. Plan for guests as well—they need to be able to move comfortably around any tables and chairs or other pieces of teak furniture.

Once you've got the space mapped out, it's time to decide what pieces you'll need. The options for teak furniture are just about endless, so your personal preference and available space will be the two determining factors here.

Whatever teak furniture pieces you decide to add to your patio, deck or outdoor living space, you can rest assured that you and your family and friends will be enjoying this attractive and durable outdoor furniture for years to come.
