The Gardenista 100: Teak Dining Tables

March 16, 2015

Teak is not throwaway furniture. Its natural oils are the secret weapon that protect against weather, pests, and deterioration–and make the hardwood the top choice for durable outdoor furniture. It’s also the most expensive wood. If you’re looking for an outdoor dining table, buy teak if you want it to last a lifetime.

For this installment of our new Gardenista 100 guide to the best outdoor furniture and accessories of 2015, we’ve rounded up our favorite teak dining tables–round, square, trestle, and farmhouse styles:

Trestle Tables
