What do you suppose is the best way to break in the O.W. Lee Marquette Fire Pit Chat Set Collection - Seats 4? If you have a few friends over for an informal get-together, you can probably also convince them to help you rearrange your patio furniture once you figure out what the best configuration is. And they'll be happy to help as long as they get to get to enjoy a comfy seat around this chic, contemporary fire pit. Each seat is crafted with a frame of wrought iron that incorporates spring steel straps into the seat underneath the thick, supportive cushions that are covered in durable, all-weather fabric. Wide, forged arms and contemporary curves on the roomy seating create a look that's right at home on your porch or patio. The fire pit features the same espresso finish that you'll enjoy on the wrought iron chair and loveseat frames. A tile top gives a functional, no-hassle surface to set drinks or snacks while you enjoy watching the gentle flames that flicker around the fireproof ceramic spheres.
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.
