Once used on the decks of luxury cruise ships to give passengers the ultimate in comfort, style and grace, the steamer chair continues to be highly sought after due to its comfortable design, classic style and durability.
Made with durable and beautiful teak, the steamer chair is elegantly curved in all the right places to create a truly relaxing and luxurious experience. Whether you are lounging by the pool, sunbathing in the garden, or simply taking a nap on your porch, the teak steamer chair is unsurpassed by other outdoor furnishings when it comes to comfort. Even if the teak steamer chair was not so luxuriously comfortable, it would still be worth a second look due to its durability and natural beauty.
Often called the premium wood for outdoor furnishings, teak has an average lifespan of 75 years, is durable and requires very little or no maintenance. Teak grows in the region of Southeast Asia, mainly in Java, Indonesia, and is harvested from the surrounding forests and teak plantations by the locals and the Indonesian government. The wood of the teak tree is naturally resistant to insects, warping, splintering and the elements, which makes it an ideal wood for creating a steamer chair.
With teak steamer chairs, there is no sealing, no staining, and no finishing. Left alone, the teak weathers to a gorgeous silver color, but if you want to keep the rich, warm color of new teak, you can do so with a seasonal application of a teak protector.
When shopping for your teak steamer chair, you will have several options to choose from, but the basic design and style of the steamer chair almost always stays the same. The chair of the steamer is contoured for optimum comfort, and the back of the chair adjusts to four different positions which makes the steamer chair perfect for just about anything.
And if you want to make your teak steamer chair even more luxurious and comfortable, you can add a cushion. Most teak steamer chair cushions are made with Sunbrella fabric and will do much more than create more comfort, they add a splash of color and design element to your outdoor space that will not go unnoticed by guests.
The steamer cushions can also be purchased to match or coordinate with existing teak furniture. Sunbrella fabrics are made with a woven acrylic material. They are water repellent, mildew resistant and colorfast. They are UV treated to not fade for three or more years, and they are guaranteed to remain beautiful summer after summer with little maintenance on your part.
There are well over 42 colors of Sunbrella teak steamer chair cushions to choose from including textured fabrics such as Limelight, Dots Meadow and Autumn; eye-catching colors like Tangerine Periwinkle and Parrot; and classic colors such as Navy, White and Camel.
So if you want to create a truly stylish and luxurious outdoor space, perhaps you should consider doing so with teak steamer chairs. You can use them poolside, in the garden, on the porch, or in simple furniture groupings in the yard. But no matter where you put your teak steamer chair, it is guaranteed to quickly become the favorite piece of furniture in your home.
