The Devon Way

What is it that makes Devon Outdoor Furniture stand out from the rest?

We think the innovation and design speaks for itself. Behind that you'll find the best raw materials, sourced from around the world, leading edge construction techniques that cut no corners, and the most important of all – a passion for outdoor living we bring to every piece of furniture made.

Design & Construction

We believe the value of a Devon table doesn't rest on the table top. As with most things, it's what's going on underneath that counts, and for all Devon Furniture this includes construction that copes with the stresses of weight and movement admirably. Joints are designed to flex with the timber movement, and extreme weather conditions won't contort the furniture thanks to quality materials and precision design.

Shiny Bits

Some outdoor furniture suffers because of inferior fittings unable to withstand outdoor exposure, and in particular, salty coastline conditions. Not so with Devon furniture – all our fittings are made from quality stainless steel, aluminium and zinc alloy to prevent rust. Their natural finish will keep shining through rain, shine, salt and water spray.

Teak

Teak is a durable tropical hardwood timber, regarded for centuries as the ideal timber for boat building and furniture making where strength and longevity are required. Teak wood will survive for many years outdoors with little or no structural deterioration, thanks to its highly water-resistant quality – it’s even repellant
to insects.


Devon’s teak furniture is finished by fine sanding and/or brushing. We then buff the surface of the teak to draw out the naturally occurring teak extractives. A coat of Devon Timber Furniture Shield is applied to repel water and dirt and protect.

Teak Care

If your furniture is inside, the natural honey colour of the teak will slowly darken, while your outdoor teak furniture will fade to a silver-grey patina. To maintain the natural honey colour of the teak use Devon Furniture Care products.

Teak requires minimal maintenance.  A light once over with a soft brush, will remove accumulated dirt alongside Devon Care Teak Protector & Devon Care Timber Cleaner.

Winter or wet season storage and protection

Teak outdoor furniture can be left outdoors all year round, regardless of the location. You might opt to cover your teak patio furniture during the winter if so, utilize a cover, which will allow your teak wood to breathe. If you store your teak furniture indoors during the heavy weather season, do not store the furniture in heated rooms. Such storage methods will dry out the wood inconsistently and may cause cracks in your furniture. Teak will naturally expand and contract with weather changes over time.  

Better Teak Care

Synthetic Weave

Devon woven furniture uses synthetic weave, tightly woven by hand to achieve exceptional comfort and appearance. Synthetic weaves are high-performance outdoor materials – UV and fade resistant, and able to withstand extreme temperatures and harsh weather conditions.

Our synthetic weaves are made from polyethylene, which can be recycled completely residue-free.

Weave Care

You can clean your Devon furniture’s weave simply by using a soft brush, and a mild soap and clean water solution. Don’t use any type of abrasive agent or scouring pad, as scratches can remain on the surface.

Devon Fabric

All Devon fabrics are woven from weather resistant, highly durable acrylic fibres to create a colourfast fabric that won’t fade, crack or tear. And you’ll find they stay cool even in the hot sun.
Our fabrics are sourced in the USA and Europe, where they’re used extensively for awnings and for marine applications such as boat cushions – they were made to withstand the elements. We were the first to combine these fabrics with wood to create outdoor furniture, and we’re so glad we did.
Our chair covers have been known to last upwards of fifteen years outside but on average you can expect between 7 and 10 years before re-covering is recommended.

Fabric Care

Devon fabric is made from acrylic fibres that resist the growth of mould, unless dirt is left on the fabric for extended periods of time. We recommend regular cleaning to prevent this, with a mild soap and lukewarm water solution.

Sustainable

A sustainable forest is a forest that is carefully managed so that as trees are felled they are replaced with seedlings that eventually grow into mature trees. This is a carefully and skillfully managed system. The forest is a working environment, producing wood products such as wood pulp for the paper / card industry and wood based materials for furniture manufacture and the construction industry. Great care is taken to ensure the safety of wildlife and to preserve the natural environment.
