Great American Woodies Cottage Classic High Patio Dining SetItem#: HN-RI142
Table, 2 or 4 Chairs
The Cottage Classic High Dining Set is just what you need to enjoy a hearty meal outdoors with family members or friends. The classic, hand-finished cottage design presents an inviting place to sit in comfort for hours on end and enjoy the warm, summer weather. The high backrest provides maximum comfort and excellent back support, while the generously proportioned, comfortable seat helps you relax and rejuvenate yourself. The smart, square dining table is perfect for setting down your dinner plate and drink, and comes in handy during family gatherings and chat sessions.
Made from decay-resistant, kiln-dried Southern Cypress, this dining set is finished in a choice of distressed acrylic color stains and lightly sanded to achieve an aged, antiqued look. The wood is finished with a layer of Cuprinol, an outdoor, water-based stain with UV inhibitors, for excellent color retention and fade resistance. All fasteners are marine stainless steel to prevent rusting. The distinctive close-grain pattern of the wood allows it to absorb paint and varnishes quite well in case you want to refinish it down the line. Designed for all-weather outdoor use, the Cottage Classic High Dining Set is the perfect addition to your backyard, garden, or front porch.
The Beauty and Benefits of Cypress Wood
Richey Industries is proud to use cypress wood. Used throughout history in the sturdy construction of piers, railroad bridges, ships and boats, cypress is now a favorite for outdoor furniture. Its watertightness is of great benefit to outdoor furniture. Richey's cypress lumber is kiln-dried then crafted into beautiful furniture pieces. It doesn't normally check or warp as many softer woods do, so it will stand the test of time. Cypress contains a natural preservative, cypressene, which further enhances its durability. It takes and holds stains and paints longer than other woods, so it's a perfect choice for Richey's Cottage Classics line.
Why does the Cottage Classic collection use an acrylic color stain instead of paint?
Plain and simple…because an acrylic color stain lasts longer. Paint does effectively seal the wood – temporarily. It's the unpainted areas you can't see that create the problems. Screw holes on the underside of every board, for instance, invite moisture to work its way under the painted surface. With no place for the water to go, the result is rotting wood under the surface. Painted Cypress products will begin to deteriorate within two years if left outside in the weather. A water-based or oil-based stain, on the other hand, allows the wood to breathe. Any moisture that gets in can still get out. After the color stain is applied to each Cottage Classic piece, it is lightly sanded to create a slightly weathered look.
