The O.W. Lee difference is in the manufacturing of their furniture. The company only uses the highest quality carbon steel, galvanized steel and 6061 alloy aluminum for superior strength as well as rust and corrosion resistance. Each piece is measured and precision-cut to ensure a smooth and accurate fit before the welding process. The furniture frames are bent into shape and then hand-forged with a hammer and anvil, a process unchanged since blacksmiths in the Middle Ages. After the frames are welded the furniture is blasted with tiny steel particles to remove dirt and oil from the manufacturing process, which is followed by a five-step wash and chemical treatment that creates the perfect surface for the final frame finish to be applied. With over 60 years of experience, O.W. Lee is committed to handcrafting beautiful casual furniture.
