Trends in Teak tables

Teak tables are an essential division of any well appointed house. Not only do they serve a vital function, serving as bookends to a furnishings grouping, but they also allow table lamps to be strategically placed around the room. As with all furnishings, the design of Teak tables evolves from year to year. Old ideas are reborn and the hottest trends seem to fade away. Anywhere in the middle lies the enduring design ideas, ones that would not only continue to look fresh year in and year out, but also solve some of your most common furniture needs.

Nesting tables are a good example. These allow you to get maximum flexibility in the smallest amount of space. Nesting tables are just what they sound like. They have several tables that nest with one another. Think of those Russian nesting dolls and you'll understand how nesting Teak tables work. These are ideal if you entertain a lot, as you essentially get three tables in one, allowing you to spread them around the room during a party. Everyone can have their own table, a big plus if you're watching a movie and everyone wants easy access to the popcorn and Junior Mints.

If you gravitate toward modern furniture, you may want to take a look at tables that were inspired by cubism. These cube shaped tables come in a wide range of materials, including modernistic favorites - steel, aluminum and plastic or resin. These will really jazz up a room and are extremely popular. Flexibility is key in American homes and you can get tables that are multi-talented. For example, you can get Teak tables that can double as ottomans. These are perfect for a lot of homes, as the top of the ottoman can be removed to disclose additional space for storage. Some of these ottoman/tables even come with a flip top so you can have padding for the ottoman or a tray for serving food and drinks or serving as the top of an end table the rest of the time.

In fact, you can get Teak tables that are more traditional in style that have removable tray tops, perfect for serving. You can even conceivably put two of these Teak tables together to create a nice coffee table. One of the easiest things to forget when shopping for outdoor teak furniture is how much space is available. It may seem like the entire backyard is available, but there are other things to remember. For example, if the furniture will be used on a deck, how big is the deck? Also how big is the patio that the furniture will be used on? Having too much furniture can make any space look cluttered, even an outdoor space.

This is one of the great things about tables in the living room or great room. You can choose tables that reflect your interests. Properly executed, nearly any piece of furniture can be put into service as an end table. If you love plants, for example, consider using a short, tiered plant stand, reserving the top level for your traditional table area. Or consider using a wrought iron serving cart at the end of your upholstered furnishings. It fills that double duty trend that is so popular, serving as a table most of the time, but being able to be pressed into service as a cart at a moment's notice during a party or holiday.

Properties of teak

Of course all of the properties of teak are the reason so many people purchase outdoor teak furniture. Teak is an extremely durable hardwood, and it requires little maintenance if you do not mind the faded, weathered look of teak. Outdoor teak furniture starts out a golden brown color, but it fades to a silvery grey color over a period of about six to nine months. People who do wish for their outdoor teak furniture to retain the original golden brown color have a lot of work to keep it that way. Teak oil can help prolong the golden brown color, although it will be necessary to sand down the wood from time to time. All that work is the reason most people learn to love the weathered look of old teak. The good news about teak is that the wood keeps its durable properties even as it weathers to the old grey color.
