Teak is the obvious choice for those who want naturally beautiful and hard-wearing wooden furniture. It possesses inherent protective properties, one of which is a dense, enduring grain which resists rot. It will therefore easily survive even in harsh weather conditions. A good piece of Grade A teak is a superb investment piece to add to your house or garden, able to withstand all weather as well as the test of time. Other hardwoods simply don't measure up to the tried and tested strength and durability of teak - accept no substitutes. Only the best A grade wood from the heart of the tree is used to create Liz Frances Premium furniture, ensuring that you get a truly excellent piece for your money. Centuries-old carpentry techniques, such as mortisce and tenon joints, have been used in crafting this furniture to create a truly long-lasting piece. This furniture has been designed for comfort and practicality, inspired by the finest traditions of British craftsmanship.

| Grade A Teak|
Furniture which is grade A teak has been made using the heartwood of the Teak tree. It is the finest, most beautiful wood used for furniture making and its natural properties make this purest cut a highly desirable material. Grade A teak is rich in natural oils which protect it against weathering, while the grain and colour are consistant and uniform. The wood will be sanded and smoothed to perfection, giving you an immaculate finish that is clean and even to the touch. Over time, the surface of the wood develops a unique, silvery patina, which is exclusively natural to teak.

|Responsibly Sourced - WWF Global Forest & Trade Network|
You can rest assured that this furniture has been sourced responsibly. The teak used in construction has been sourced under the WWF's GFTN initiative, which aims to eliminate illegal logging and drive improvements in forest management. We have used only the finest timber that has been sourced from managed plantations in Indonesia, one of the largest producers of teak. GFTN, as a WWF-led partnership, links hundreds of companies, communities, NGOs, and entrepreneurs in more than 30 countries around the world. Only mature trees are cut down, which means higher quality wood, and higher quality furniture. We are proud that we fully comply to the new 2013 EU Timber Regulations and that we can trace the provenance of our timber, right along the supply chain back to the plantation.
| Extendable Oval Table|
The middle leaves of this beautiful table can be pulled out in order to create space. After use, the table can be conveniently and easily folded back to save space. It is extremely versatile. When unextended it can accommodate up to eight chairs, and when fully extended it can seat 10-12.
A central hole is created especially for parasol insertion, allowing you to sit in the shade when the sun becomes too hot.

| Mortice and Tenon Joints|
Each teak furniture piece has been crafted to the highest standard using traditional mortise and tenon joints. The mortice and tenon joint has been the craftsman's bread and butter for centuries, proving to be a necessity for furniture making. Fitted with care and using traditional methods, each joint has been created not only to be incredibly strong, but to look great too.
The high level of craftsmanship is present even in the smallest detail of our furniture, with every dowel crafted to perfection, fitting into place and sanded down to give a beautifully smooth wooden surface which blends into the body of the piece. The dowel joints offer the mortice and tenon joints a little extra stability.
Brass fittings have been designed to ensure that the joints are fitted together securely. The fittings are weatherproof, stylish and add a little sophistication while bringing out the golden tones of the teak.
