No matter what kind of outdoor space you are working with, from covered terraces, exposed poolsides, beachfront decks or sunny narrow balcony – DEDON supply durable outdoor furniture to stand the test of time.
DEDON are a German furniture brand known primarily for their iconic fibre. A weaving material invented and pioneered by Dedon, this environmentally-friendly fibre is unrivalled for strength, durability, weather fastness and luxuriousness of colour, texture and touch. It is also recyclable and non-toxic, burning as cleanly as candle wax. DEDON pieces are made by hand with the utmost attention to detail, by expert weavers and craftspeople.
In recent years, Dedon have been developing a range of outdoor furniture collections that utilise high-quality teak sourced from sustainable plantations. Teak is a valuable timber resource, and important part of our ecosystem. DEDON are part of a program that plants a new teak tree for every tree used. When allowed to age naturally outdoors, teak furniture will slowly turn to a soft, silver grey as surface pigments fade.
Premium teak is from the very core of the teak tree. As such, it is rich in natural tannins and able to withstand harsh weather conditions over an exceptionally long lifetime. The wood is resistant to rain, strong sunlight, freezing conditions and fluctuating temperatures. These qualities make it particularly well-suited to longterm outdoor use. Lower quality, cheaper teak is not as rich in oils and is prone to splitting and cracking in the elements.
DEDON’s use of premium teak furniture reflects the current moment in design, in which indoor and outdoor living spaces are merging and softer, more interior feeling finishes are being desired. DEDON’s teak outdoor furniture collections boast a rich material mix of teak, outdoor performance textiles and their famous woven fibre to convey an especially luxurious look and feel.

To retain the original golden hue of teak outdoor furniture, use DEDON teak oil at least twice a year. To clean the timber, use a DEDON cleaning agent at least once per year. We recommend twice a year, just before the Summer, and just before the Winter. To remove any rough grain and restore the timber to its smooth finish, lightly sand the surface.
