Thanks, Dove. I think it is real teak. I can't remember what it said on the box... It was expensive, the dearest one in B & Q and better than what they have now. I bought it in the sale of course! It is hard and has brass bits on the matching brolly and plaques on the back of the chairs! Ha, I was so proud when I bought it all. I knew that it would last for years and was a good buy. It went a black colour after a couple of years. Why did it do that. My son power washed it this year, wich he hadn't as it didn't feel good after that but got the honey colour back. I sanded it and teak oiled it. I remember a man at B & Q saying that he didn't bother using teak oil anymore. Great, I'll leave it out But why did it go black?
