Furniture crafted from teak wood is generational……..
Teak furniture crafted today will be enjoyed by my children. And their children. And their children……….
It is for this reason we have two such teak lounge chairs on our home deck. Their comfort brings back all our wonderful sea travel memories. Before purchase however we did verify that the supply of teak in their making was from Plantation-grown trees. We purchased them on line in the late summer season and acquired them for only one hundred dollars (Canada) each. Lucky us.
