I bought 10 of these almost 3 years ago for outdoor use in Laguna Beach, California, and they’re still holding up beautifully! I leave them out year ’round and let the teak age naturally for a more rustic look (though one could easily oil them if one wants them to stay “newer” looking).
These are the heavy duty, super strong chairs you see in commercial installations. The genuine article despite the incredibly good price! Not the flimsy, thin and quickly rusting versions. I like armchairs for the whole table because they’re just more comfortable to sit in during longer dinner parties.
I bought 8 new ones today for a friend.
