When shoppers see the Lee Industries display in our Atlanta outdoor furniture showroom, one of their first questions is usually “Is this outdoor furniture?” With their comfy dimensions, plush cushions and tailored upholstery, it is easy to picture these pieces in a living room, family room or sun room. But with their durable, weatherproof construction these pieces were built for outdoors.
How do they do it? Lee Industries constructs each piece to exacting standards with marine grade birch plywood, Sunbrella outdoor fabric and recycled fiber cushions. Special features built into the construction, like a sloped seat deck for drainage, reticulated open cell foam cushions, and aluminum feet which resist rust ensure the longevity and durability of these pieces.
With a variety of Sunbrella fabrics available for customization, it is possible to create almost any “indoor” look for your outdoor area with their extensive collection of outdoor furniture in styles ranging from traditional to modern.
