Teak is probably the best in outdoor patio furniture that is available today. Its lifespan alone is unbelievable and to add to its longevity it is available in many different styles. Although out of all of the finishes and materials that outdoor chaise lounges are available in teak is close to the most expensive among them. But well worth the initial investment for your lasting comfort.
Teak chaise lounges are the best choice in terms of durability and attractiveness. Teaks high oil content makes it virtually rot proof and extremely resistant to the elements. It is a strong and beautiful material. Unfortunately it is also usually harvested unsustainably and is therefore a poor choice if one is concerned with environmental health. The exception is teak that is farmed sustainably though this can be somewhat hard to find.
Other wood chaise lounges suitable for outdoor use include those made with other rot resistant woods such as cedar. Wicker chaise lounges are a newer entrant to the market but they have already become popular due to the strength and beauty of wicker a natural material. Natural wicker is more suitable for use in patio chaise lounges where there is a roof to protect the lounge from rain however as wicker does not like being wet. Resin chaise lounges are safer for outdoor use.
Nowadays the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns. The beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result it can be moved from the bedroom dining room and living room to the porch pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
