The Rio Outdoor Collection: A breakdown


At the core of the Rio Teak Collection lies exquisite teak wood. Sourced from Indonesia, we use Grade B+ teak wood which is renowned for its exceptional hardness and durability. This type of teak wood boasts a straight grain and minimal knots, ensuring a clean and refined aesthetic for your outdoor space.

100% olefin fabric is used for the seat and sofa cushions. Olefin is known for its water-repellent properties, ensuring that your cushions remain resistant to moisture, mould, and mildew. This means you can enjoy lounging in comfort, rain or shine, without worrying about your cushions losing their shape or colour.

The Rio collection boasts water-repellent olefin cushions for easy maintenance.

Adding a touch of elegance and texture to the collection is the woven backrest design featured on the chairs. This intricate detailing introduces a visual and tactile contrast to the smooth surfaces of the teak wood, creating a dynamic interplay of materials.

The woven backrest not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the furniture but also provides additional support and comfort.

One of the defining characteristics of the Rio Outdoor Collection is its angular and boxy design. This modern aesthetic lends an air of sophistication to outdoor spaces, while also providing a sleek and contemporary silhouette.

The clean lines and geometric shapes create a sense of order and balance, making the furniture pieces stand out as focal points in any outdoor setting. Whether you're furnishing a minimalist patio or a chic rooftop terrace, the angular and boxy design of the Rio Teak Collection adds a touch of urban elegance to your outdoor oasis.

One of the most charming aspects of Rio is its embrace of the natural aging process of teak wood. Rather than applying a finish or stain to preserve its original colour, we left the teak unfinished, allowing it to naturally weather and evolve. This not only adds character and depth to the furniture but also celebrates the inherent beauty of the material.


The Rio Teak Collection effortlessly embodies the essence of the modern farmhouse style, blending rustic charm with contemporary elegance. The warm tones and natural textures of the teak wood evoke a sense of cosiness and comfort, reminiscent of traditional farmhouse aesthetics.

At the same time, the clean lines and minimalist design elements add a touch of sophistication and refinement, giving the collection a contemporary twist.

But, while the collection is rooted in the modern farmhouse aesthetic, its versatile design and colour tones allow it to seamlessly integrate into a variety of design styles. Whether you prefer coastal chic or eclectic bohemian, the clean lines and natural materials of the collection serve as a versatile canvas for expressing your style.

Maintenance and care

Knowing the Rio Collection is made from natural teak wood can throw some people off as they associate it with being high maintenance.

But, don’t fret! While it may require some extra care when compared to materials like plastic, with proper care, teak outdoor furniture can last an extremely long time and is worth that extra effort.

Here are some pointers to take note of when it comes to the maintenance and care of the furniture in the Rio Collection:

  • Avoid using high-pressure cleaners or harsh chemicals on the table tops or frames

  • Ensure the product is completely dry before placing outdoor covers to prevent mould and mildew growth

  • To prolong the lifespan of the teak furniture, store them indoors during winter and inclement weather

  • To maintain the appearance of wood, lightly sandpaper the surface and apply a layer of outdoor grade coating once a year

  • Clean surfaces and wipe spills immediately with a clean, damp cloth

  • Use coasters or placemats where possible, to prevent discolouration of the surface

  • Cushion covers are removable for easy cleaning, but do not machine wash or tumble dry

  • To clean cushions, wipe or vacuum up loose dirt, then use a sponge or soft bristle brush to clean the dirty area with mild soap and lukewarm water

Pricing and bundles

Let’s take a look at the pricing of the Rio collection:

As the sofa units are modular, you can purchase individual units to create your own seating configuration. The sofa units start from $899.


This collection requires some hands-on assembly to ensure that each piece is properly set up and ready for use. While this may seem daunting at first, rest assured that the assembly process is straightforward and manageable with the provided instructions and tools.
