There's a lot to be said of having a good support group, but we can't think of a group that's more supportive than the O.W. Lee Laredo Chat Set with Chaise Lounge Collection. You'll be able to get through any problem when this elegant outdoor set is holding you up while you get a much-needed breath of fresh air. Each piece sports a frame of all-weather wrought iron that's finished in a rich espresso shade. This earthy tone is the perfect complement to the hues of the outdoor fabrics that cover the thick cushions. These fabrics are fade-resistant and designed for a life in the elements, so you can be confident that you'll have a dry place to sit all year long. The simple spring legs of the chairs offer a gentle rocking motion, while the chaise lounges give you multiple reclining options to suit your mood. Thick ottomans make sure your feet never touch the ground, and a pair of matching tables keep your cool drinks or hot snacks right where you can reach them.
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.
