You don't have to be a movie star to lounge by the pool all day - all you need is an O.W. Lee Palisades Chaise Lounge. Okay, because this lounger can't make you independently wealthy, you might also need a weekend to enjoy it. But the luxury of this chaise certainly can't be denied. Sharing a name with the lavish Los Angeles neighborhood that is home to so many stars, the Palisades Collection by O. W. Lee has been tastefully designed with that same level of elegance. The gently curving scrollwork of the arms, legs, and braces give this piece a sensual, organic feel that enriches any exterior decor. And having the power to choose from a wide selection of frame and fabric colors also gives you the creative opportunity to perfectly match your own personal tastes and the existing look of your home and yard. But functionally designed for much more than beautiful ornamentation, this chaise lounge has a level of comfort that will really help you experience how the other half lives. The adjustable seatback lets you find a reclining position that's right for you, whether you're the kind of person who likes to sit back with a good book or the kind who would rather just take a nap while you soak in the sun. The curved arms and back and the thick foam and fiber filled cushions add to this feeling of relaxation, offering a natural support that you and your body will love. And finding more sun or more shade is a breeze with the functional rear wheels, which allow you to easily move around the yard, patio, or pool deck.
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.
