Definition: Teak

Teak is a type of hardwood harvested from a tall tropical tree found in Indonesia and other parts of Asia. But despite its Eastern roots, teak is well-known for its popularity in Scandinavian-style furniture. The smooth, golden-brown wood is incredibly durable and weather-resistant, and it won't cause rust when it comes into contact with metal. For that reason, teak is often used to make outdoor furniture, decks, and boats.
