Blending Durability, Style in Outdoor Furniture

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BackyardExterior

Wooden outdoor furniture always looks good in the beginning. Then it usually turns gray and eventually falls apart because of unsuitable materials and poor design. It has been Island Style Furnishings’ goal to search for the best outdoor wooden furniture available. Australia is known for its punishing environment, and one company from Brisbane has designed an all-weather furniture to survive for years. Merbau wood (also known as Kwila) is regarded as one of the most durable and stable timbers in the world, and is the most important aspect of the furniture. It is well-known as the wood-of-choice for building docks, decks and flooring. Merbau is the perfect wood for outdoor furniture. It is twice as hard and strong as teak, which makes it resistant to abrasion, pitting or roughening. Prior to manufacturing, the Merbau is kiln-dried to stabilize the timber so it doesn’t warp or crack. The furniture contains a reddish-brown tannin, which gives it its characteristic color. This tannin makes the wood naturally rotand insect-proof. Mortise and tenon joints with cross doweling are used throughout each piece. All hardware is corrosion-resistant 304-grade stainless steel and nickel-plated brass. Each piece comes coated with three applications of Sikkens Cetol One ™ which provides a protective, durable and beautiful finish that is easy to maintain.
