Product Description

Color: Natural

Product Description

The Strathwood Lounge is ideal for lounging around the pool, back yard or deck. The back features a 5 position adjustment for upright seating, very relaxed seating or completely flat seating. A very handy tray slides to either side or can rest below the chaise when not in use. For more comfort, add a chaise lounge cushion. This sturdy chaise lounge is easily assembled with an adjustable wrench and the supplied allen wrench. The entire chaise is made of eucalyptus which is an all-weather wood that is dense and durable. Eucalyptus requires no finishing and will not rot when left outdoors, whereas rain and sun will damage other lesser quality woods. Left untreated, eucalyptus will weather to a soft warm shade of gray similar to the weathering of teak. Sturdy mortise and tenon construction provides the highest quality joinery that will last for many years. Original color can be maintained by applying a seasonal coat of teak oil.

This handsome, well-made chaise is tailor-made for soaking up the sun or relaxing by the pool. A unique tray table extends to hold drinks, magazines, and other lounging essentials, then slides back underneath for storage. The back adjusts to five positions--from fully-upright to completely-reclined. Matching cushions can also be purchased to add even more comfort. The chair's slotted surface allows rain to flow through, rather than collect and damage the wood. Rust-resistant hardware and mortise and tenon construction add to the piece’s strength and durability.

Crafted from durable, Earthy-friendly eucalyptus hardwood, this furniture is intended for outdoor use in all weather. A beautiful hardwood comparable to teak and with excellent weather-resistant properties, eucalyptus is dense and naturally resistant to rot and insect infestation. Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), there is no doubt about the responsible production and consumption of this wood. The rapid growth of eucalyptus trees makes them more readily available and more easily affordable. In addition, furniture constructed of eucalyptus is light enough to move easily and requires no oiling unless to maintain a desired look.

Left untreated, eucalyptus will weather when exposed to the elements, turning a soft shade of silver/gray similar to the weathering of teak. In addition, when untreated, natural splitting or cracks will appear, but this will not affect the durability of the furniture. To guard against this weathering process and to maintain a desired look, apply coats of a hardwood oil. The frequency of necessary oil applications depends on the intensity of the outdoor elements. The furniture has already been oiled prior to packing, and it is recommended that an oil treatment be repeated at least once a year. Giving the furniture an extra treatment before exposing to rain will prolong the “new” look and ensure a longer life.

After eucalyptus furniture has weathered, it can be restored if desired by sanding down the surface, cleaning it, and then applying oil to prevent more weathering. To clean it, mix one tablespoon of bleach, five tablespoons of a gentle dishwashing liquid, and a gallon of water, and gently scrub the mixture on the surface of the wood with a soft bristle brush. Rinse the solution from the furniture, and allow it to dry completely in the sun. Developed for use in high humidity, the furniture is best not stored in centrally heated areas, as that could lead to excessive drying out of the wood.

Wood that becomes saturated with water and left over an extended period without drying out is more likely to warp and rot. The bases of furniture legs are probably the most vulnerable when it comes to water damage. If wood furniture is kept in the grass, at the poolside, or on a surface that collects rain water, the legs can become saturated. Covering the bottoms of each leg with rubberized material or small sections of cedar fencing material will help protect furniture from rotting from the bottom up.

Strathwood furniture has quality, ease of use, and casual elegance at its core. Each piece is rigorously tested for durability, and assembly instructions have been standardized for simplicity from start to finish. Strathwood furniture is sleekly designed, handsomely finished, and built to last. This classic style and reliable craftsmanship will weather ever-changing trends and regular use for years to come.

The tray is useful and rolling it on the wheels make it easy to move around.

I did purchase two of these chaise lounges from Amazon. One arrived damaged and I had no problems exchanging it for a new one. I had these lounges on my new paver patio from June through October. they were covered with those green plastic covers.

A few things observed:

After a few months the sliding tray failed to slide out.

One of the dowels that hold up the back of the chair had cracked and fell apart.

My patio was stained with the orange dye used to make these chairs appear to be teak.

I emailed Amazon and explained the situation. I have to commend Amazon for REFUNDING ME ENTIRELY for my purchase and for the SHIPPING too, after having these chaise lounges for over 6 months. I received a refund for $239.98. Also, they gave me a $20 credit for my trouble.

Point is, the manufacturer is producing a terrible product and Amazon has had to deal with it.

In one of the emails, Amazon wrote to me and implied that they were not going to continue selling this product. Obviously they have not done that.

So word to the wise, do not buy these chairs. They look to be of high quality but are far from that. And, I wish you luck in getting your refund too.

Assembly was tedious but no more than 30 minutes.
The wood needed a couple spots sanded and the whole thing was oily on arrival. I rubbed it down with a cloth for 4-5 days while it sat out in the sun.

The sliding table (preassembled) no longer slides (2 weeks outside.) It is jammed tight. I guess the wood expanded in the track.

The wheels are wobbly and and I just noticed one has a crack half way through it.

The whole thing could also be a couple inches higher.

Anyway, its cheap.

I ordered the matching table and chairs, but the Eagle trucking company broke another delivery appointment after having me wait at home during their 8 hour delivery window.

Sept 2007 Update:

Well it's been outside (Pennsylvania weather) for two years. I applied a deck sealer in the Fall of 2006 and again in Aug 2007. It actually looks good after a light sanding and a fresh coat of wood sealer. However, the wooden wheels have both came apart and I replaced them with lawn mower wheels. I think I can get one more year out of this.

May 2010 Update:

It had a good life but it is now exhibiting cracking and checking of the wood. I think its done. The mattress, oddly enough lasted well enough, considering I leave it out all year. I'm going to dispose of the mattress and re-purpose it as a plant stand (in the flat position.) I think it will look good with colorful pots and vines living on it for now.

While the lounge chairs we received looked good and we have received compliments, they have ruined the cushions that we purchased to go on them. The stain has come off of the chairs ruining the concrete deck below them and the cushions that were $100 a piece that go on them. What an absolute mess. There is stain on my BRAND NEW cushions and on the pool deck below them that we are unable to get out. DO NOT BUY THESE CHAIRS! I am now having to start over with chairs and cushions. What an absolute disappointment!

We got the chair and thought it was great - until it rained for several days straight and our new brick patio is the color the chair once was. How in the heck do you get stain out of coarse brick?!?!? It's still raining...

I bought two of these, one for my mom and one for my mother-in-law. When they are at the house no one else is allowed to use them without thier say so. I have scored like a thousand more points from each of them for getting these lounge chairs.

These are great lounges, easy to assemble and the sliding table makes a great margarita holder. One did arrive slightly damaged and Amazon got right on it. They arranged for a replacement to be sent out, via next day air!! They also arranged for the damaged item to be picked up and returned on thier dime. I love my moms, I love the chairs and I love Amazon.com.

We purchased these two teak finish chaise lounges because the price was very affordable compared to others we had seen. They assembled well and looked great, until the first rainfall. The orange stain dripped off the chaise lounges all over our white pool deck. It looked as if they were "melting". We had to use a high powered pressure washer to remove the stain from our deck. Unfortunately, they still drip onto the deck each time it rains, a little less stain each time. We can only hope that eventually it will stop completely. As I said, they look great, but alas a bargains isn't always a bargain!

At $89 it seemed like a fantastic deal for a nice looking wood chair. They arrived in horrible shipping packaging that not only didn't protect, but actually caused damage. My experience was tainted by a convoluted and frustrating exchange process. The chairs needed to be slathered in teak oil if used outdoors - which is where a deck chair usually resides. There are now large brown stains on my deck after the chairs saw their first rain.

After the time wasted exchanging the damaged chairs, going to Home Depot for teak oil, applying the teak oil to both chairs and needing to get our deck pressured washed, I would not buy them again. They look nice, but are not worth the effort. I wanted to buy a chair, not a project.
