Natural, Chalked, Seasoned and Darkened might be our four main IsoGuard finishes, but you’ll also find a few others dotted through our collection.
Edinburgh, for instance, has a Vintage Oak finish, which is slightly deeper than Natural Oak but not as brown as Darkened. Carter and Chawton are finished with the same Vintage Oak IsoGuard, plus a few other processes that add up to what we call Dark Vintage Oak (a finish that feels very much like reclaimed timber, but with none of the wobbliness). Then there’s Henley, which we call Classic Oak. It’s a look very similar to Natural Oak in colour, but with an additional water-based topcoat that creates a sleeker finish to the timber and an ever so slight sheen.
Finally, there are also our exterior finishes. Exterior IsoGuard does just as the interior versions do and protects outdoor teak furniture from stains and oxidising, as well as helping prevent drying. There are two finishes in the collection: Moss (the one we use on most of our designs), which has a natural greenish-grey tinge; and Weathered Moss (you’ll find this on Hove pieces and Bryher’s legs), which is similar but a touch more pigmented.
