Meet Our Vendors: Barlow Tyrie

The Company

Founded in 1920, Barlow Tyrie is the world's oldest manufacturer of teak wood leisure furniture. It has since extended its collections to include stainless steel and powder-coated aluminum.

Why We Love Them

At Patio Place, we choose our vendors carefully. We interview companies to make sure they provide high quality furniture, their manufacturing is sustainable, and they stand behind their product.

We are proud to work with Barlow Tyrie since 2012. In those nine years, we have found the beauty of their furniture to be breathtaking, including both dining and lounge. Equally, the unwavering quality of construction has allowed us to provide our customers with perfect pieces for their outdoor space year after year. Barlow Tyrie teak furniture lasts a long time. We love hearing from customers who have had Barlow Tyrie sets for twenty years or more and are just coming to us to add a piece or two. Now that's what we like to see!

About Teak

Teak is a deciduous hardwood tree from managed plantations. It has a naturally high oil content which makes it both stable and resistant to rotting when exposed to climatic extremes--perfect for Wisconsin winters.

Teak wood will naturally weather from golden brown to a silver-grey patina color. We recommend the following products to care for and maintain your teak furniture:

Care of Teak Furniture

Over a few months in an outdoor environment, untreated teak will weather to a silver grey color, which is due to the action of sunlight. Many owners of teak furniture prefer this natural patina and an example is shown in the seat pictured above. The following care products may be used to retain or restore the original color of Teak and protect it as described.

Teak Color Guard - 4TCG applied annually will maintain the natural color of teak using UV inhibitors to slow the natural greying process caused by sunlight and pigments that help to maintain its natural color. This treatment must be applied before the Teak is allowed to weather or after cleaning. Teak Cleaner – 4TC will quickly remove accumulated dirt.
