Sink into any item from the O.W. Lee Palisades Conversation Collection and take in the natural beauty of your backyard. The Palisades are a line of steep cliffs overlooking the Hudson River, renowned for their sheer sandstone rock face and lower lush vegetation, presenting a geographical rise that connects the heavens and the sea. Whether you've cultivated such a stunning Eden in your own yard or simply enjoy breathing in the fresh air of a warm summer evening while you entertain a few friends, this collection offers you the perfect places to perch. The curving arms and back offer a naturally supportive recline that, together with the deep seat and the thick cushions, inspire long languid evenings full of contemplation or friendly conversation. The superior foam and fiber filled seat cushions add to this feeling of relaxation, providing a softness that visually plays off the hardness of the aluminum frame and that is a pleasure to sit in. Meanwhile the aluminum frames are cleverly formed with sensual, organic curves that add a touch of elegance to any exterior decor. Purchase the Palisades Conversation Collection just as it's pictured, or shop below to create your own custom set.
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.
