Once a decision has been made on a garden table, the next consideration is garden seating. All Teak Unique tables and chairs (or benches) are designed to be mixed and matched to suit individual needs and preferences. As with selecting the perfect teak table, the same considerations apply when selecting teak chairs or benches, being: longevity and quality; preferred style; the main use and practicality for the available outdoor space; plus comfort.
Teak Unique’s contemporary and classic garden chairs and benches are comfortable and well-made using high-grade teak. There is a design within our range to suit every individual style and outside space. The options to consider include:
GARDEN DINING OR CARVER CHAIRS? A standard dining chair is armless, whereas a carver chair has armrests. Dining chairs tend to be popular for modern outdoor dining and, for those with less space or bigger families, dining chairs take up less space. Carver chairs provide more support when seated and are ideal if you like a more formal look. Customers often opt to mix and match, placing carver chairs at the head of the table. Our Riverbank and Bali collections include armless dining chairs and carver chairs with arms, all of which are solid, comfortable garden chairs.
FOLDING CHAIRS? If outside space is limited, teak folding chairs are a great option as they can be easily stored. Folding dining chairs also take up less space, so perfect on occasions when additional seating is needed. The high-backed Snapdragon remains a firm favourite due to its practicality and value, whilst the Sumatra has a more contemporary feel. Both collections include folding dining chairs and folding carver chairs. For added luxury, the versatile folding Borneo recliner can be adjusted to four different positions, and used for dining in the two upright positions or relaxation in the two reclined positions.
BENCHES? If you regularly entertain alfresco, then benches are a versatile seating option to squeeze more guests around a table, are more social, and often make the outside dining area feel more spacious. It seems to be becoming more popular to mix chairs and benches around a garden table.
CUSHIONS? For extra comfort, our outdoor seat pads and bench cushions have Sunproof Olefin covers, which are UV resistant, water repellent and environmentally friendly. Choose between classic green with cream piping or dark grey with light grey piping. For a wider range of beautiful outdoor cushion fabrics, the place to go is unquestionably Amelfi. They specialise in bespoke outdoor cushions, all of which are water, stain, mould and UV resistant. Amelfi’s choice of base colours, trims, borders and piping are stunning, and any combination will definitely brighten and enhance Teak Unique garden furniture.
Your outdoor dining space should be a comfortable and inviting area for family and friends to gather, and we’re confident that, whatever your style, you’ll find a Teak Unique garden table and seating to suit your needs.
