Provence tables are made from solid, rustic teak wood. Natural features such as knots, coarse ridges, and checking may occur naturally in the wood, giving each piece of furniture individual character. A beautiful gray finish is hand applied to achieve an aged appearance. If left uncovered, the finish will start to wear away after a season of use. Once it wears away, exposing unfinished teak to the elements, the furniture will begin to acquire the beautiful gray patina that is typical of untreated teak.
