Jewels of Java Teak Chelsea BenchItem#: HN-JWL085
It's easy to understand why you might need a bench, but take a closer look at the Jewels of Java Chelsea Bench, and you'll see what this bench offers that others just can't. The solid teak construction with an unfinished appearance highlights the beauty of the wood, but the durability of teak won't be apparent until you realize that years have passed and your bench hasn't warped, splintered, or been eaten by bugs. Mortise-and-tenon construction adds strength and minimizes the need for exposed screws and brackets. The gently curved seat and slightly angled back offer greater comfort than the harsh surfaces and 90-degree angles of other benches. Make the investment in comfort and durability, and then stop worrying about your bench and let it worry about how you can enjoy your summer.
The Benefits and Beauty of Teak
Teak wood is universally recognized for its quality, durability, and beauty. Teak is a very hard, densely grained wood with high oil content. The unique combination of these characteristics makes teak naturally resistant to moisture, rot, warping, shrinking, splintering, insects, and fungus. It is considered the ideal wood for outdoor furniture.
About Jewels of Java Teak Furniture
Teak furniture is a top choice for outdoor furniture, as its average lifespan is 75 years! Untreated, this beautiful hardwood holds up to season after season of any kind of harsh element. Putting Jewels of Java teak items into winter storage is unnecessary, as this furniture resists water, weather, and warping as it mellows to a soft silver color. The grey/silver patina can be maintained by the application of teak oil once or twice a year, although this only affects the color, not the integrity of the wood, and most prefer the look of fine aged teak.
This high-grade teak comes from plantations in Indonesia, and Jewels of Java is proud to work with Perum Perhutani, the state-owned agency responsible for managing the conservation of the Indonesian teak forest. They ensure that no tree is harvested unless another is planted to replace it. The wood is then kiln dried and constructed with mortise and tenon joinery, creating furniture to last a lifetime. Rest assured that when you purchase Jewels of Java, you've purchased an ethical legacy in addition to fine furniture.
