The O.W. Lee Marquette Swivel Patio Counter Stool is a perfect way to outfit your high patio table or fixed counter surface with a comfortable, versatile seat. This tall stool features a wide, four-legged base with a swivel design, allowing the occupant to turn from side-to-side comfortably. The seat features arms and a high, curved back with interlaced slat supports. Thick, solid hand-wrought iron is used to construct the frame, protected by a powder-coated finish to prevent rust and scratches. A square seat cushion is included, padded thickly and featuring a plush fabric upholstery. The frame finish is available in a variety of color options, while the fabric comes in several choices of color and pattern, allowing you to mix and match to create a piece that suitably matches your décor scheme.
Materials and construction:
Only the highest quality materials are used in the production of O.W. Lee Company's furniture. Carbon steel, galvanized steel, and 6061 alloy aluminum is meticulously chosen for superior strength as well as rust and corrosion resistance. All materials are individually measured and precision cut to ensure a smooth, and accurate fit. Steel and aluminum pieces are bent into perfect shapes, then hand-forged with a hammer and anvil, a process unchanged since blacksmiths in the middle ages.
For the optimum strength of each piece, a full-circumference weld is applied wherever metal components intersect. This type of weld works to eliminate the possibility of moisture making its way into tube interiors or in a crevasse. The full-circumference weld guards against rust and corrosion. Finally, all welds are ground and sanded to create a seamless transition from one component to another.
Each frame is blasted with tiny steel particles to remove dirt and oil from the manufacturing process, which is then followed by a 5-step wash and chemical treatment, resulting in the best possible surface for the final finish. A hand-applied zinc-rich epoxy primer is used to create a protective undercoat against oxidation. This prohibits rust from spreading and helps protect the final finish. Finally, a durable polyurethane top coating is hand-applied, and oven-cured to ensure a long lasting finish.
