Teak:

Teak is a type of tropical hard and durable timber used for constructing furniture and other goods and accessories.

According to Wikipedia, “Teak’s natural oils make it useful in exposed locations, and make the timber termite and pest resistant. Teak is durable even when not treated with oil or varnish.”  This makes teak wood perfect for outdoor spaces, or conversely, when you want to bring a touch of the outdoors inside.

Here are a few examples of teak wood:

Teak has a way of bringing a laid back, outdoor feel into whatever kind of space you place it.  Its great for those who love the outdoors and gravitate toward organic, natural elements and decor.
