The Eastern influence of our MANDALAY dining group reflects an elegant simplicity that will enhance any landscape or garden setting. Among the unique design features of the Mandalay dining table are: an elliptical shaped top, twin pedestal legs, and a hidden 2" umbrella hole that lies beneath the middle slat. This table comfortably seats eight to ten when extended, or six when you remove the duel extension pieces. (Note: It is not necessary to remove your umbrella when extending the table). Features and Benefits: Kingsley Bate uses raw grade A teak giving you the option to either let the piece naturally turn grey over time with exposure to the elements or you can seal/stain it a colour of your choosing. Grade A teak is dense with a high resin content that allows it to withstand extreme temperature changes without cracking. Care: If teak is being left to naturally patina (turn grey) it can be left out year round without a protective cover. Teak that has been sealed/stained should be placed in dry storage to avoid unnecessary maintenance of the applied finish. It is best not to use furniture covers on teak.
