For those times and climates where the wearing of socks or using a coat rack is purely optional, the O.W. Lee Marquette Patio Dining Set Collection - Seats 10 is where you'll be spending mealtimes or any other free moments during your day. This roomy, all-weather set begins with rugged frames of all-weather wrought iron that's covered in a simple and versatile finish of textured black. The gentle curves create a modern take on traditional European styles, while the wide, forged arms and spring-steel straps in the seats add comfort to the casual style. The expansive table is crafted from cast aluminum with an open, traditional pattern that's not only a joy to look at, but it's rust-proof, easy to clean and the open style helps reduce the overall weight of the table. A central umbrella hole lets you add some shade for sunny days while it gives you more time outdoors. Make the investment in your own relaxation and add this handsome set to your porch, patio or poolside.
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.
