It's usually the proximity to the bar that makes an empty stool so attractive, but the O.W. Lee Montrachet Swivel Counter Stool seems to be doing just fine on its own. Sitting high on a 27-inch high seat, you'll love the curved back and curled armrests on this stool's aluminum frame. Hexagonal aluminum tube is used for strength as well as it's resistance to the rust and corrosion that plagues other materials when they're left outside. Even the included cushion is ready for the weather when they're covered in Sunbrella fabrics. Available in your choice of vibrant colors, Sunbrella fabrics are uniquely suited to resist fading, moisture and the elements. A smooth swiveling base lets you keep up with the party with a full, 360-degree rotation. One stool is nice, but add a few more to make a set, or try adding other pieces from the Montrachet line, such as the Dining Arm Chair or Ottoman. This stool weighs 44 lbs. Please note: This item is not intended for commercial use. Warranty applies to residential use only.
Sunbrella has been the leader in performance fabrics for over 45 years. Impeccable quality, sophisticated styling and best-in-class warranties prove the new generation of Sunbrella offers more possibilities than ever. Sunbrella fabrics are breathable and water-repellant. If kept dry, they will not support the growth of mildew as natural fibers will. Beautiful and durable, Sunbrella is a name you can trust in your outdoor furniture.
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.
