Create positive memories for you and your guests, with the O.W. Lee Ashbury Round Ottoman. According to the principles of feng shui, positive chi can be increased in outdoor living spaces by adding curves and circular designs. And applying that principle to a piece as hospitable as this round ottoman is bound to make your guests feel right at home. Its central design focuses a group inward, establishing an inclusive interconnectedness among the party as a whole. But this versatile piece can be moved around your outdoor living area, functioning in different roles depending on the needs of you and your company. As an extra surface space, this ottoman can hold drink trays, books, games, or any personal items you or your guests need to have close at hand. If a few more friends show up than you had planned on, the ottoman's thick cushion and strong bracing allows you to provide comfortable extra seating without having to drag out mismatched chairs from storage. And when you find a little time to yourself, you can relax out in the fresh air while you prop your feet up on this ottoman and let your cares drift away. The sensually curving metalwork of the legs and their braces is hand forged and hammered, bringing a uniquely masterful craftsmanship to this piece and adding to your outdoor decor a classic appeal that also possesses a fashion-forward individuality.
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.
