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, as well as 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 (you can see the process over on our IGTV). There are three finishes in the collection: Moss (which is the one we use on most of our designs) has a natural greenish-grey tinge; Weathered Moss, which you’ll find on Hove pieces and Bryher’s legs, is similar but a touch more pigmented; and Shale, which is warmer in tone and is used on Runswick’s oak legs.
