The Franschhoek Patio Dining Chair is a simple yet beautiful wooden chair. The chair has a single slat as a backrest and a slatted seat. The chair has generous dimensions and is a good choice if high winds are a factor.
The Franschhoek Patio Dining Chair is made by Benchmark from solid iroko timber. Also known as African teak, iroko is a dense and durable timber that ranges in colour from yellow to light brown, and darkens to a rich grey-brown as the wood ages. Like teak, the wood has a high natural oil content, which makes it highly suitable for full outdoor use without any form of further treatment required. If exposed to the elements the wood weathers over time to a pleasing silver-grey tone. Oiling is entirely optional and we use a top-quality Danish oil by ProNature as our standard finish, which produces a soft matt sheen and a lightly ‘washed’ appearance to the timber. The oil also acts as a sealing agent, protecting the timber from grease stains that result from food and wine spills.
This Franschhoek Patio Dining Chair is designed to complement the Franschhoek Patio Dining Table, but is equally suitable for use with any Benchmark patio table. This chair stands 860mm high, 470mm wide and 490mm deep.
Our patio chairs are beautiful and comfortable just as they are, but we do offer seat pad cushions to be made in the colour of your choice. All our cushions are wrapped with Dacron and include a lined inner cover for easy removal of the exterior cushion cover. We use a high quality Italian outdoor fabric for our cushion covers. The fabric is machine washable, sun-proof and mould resistant, and comes with a five year guarantee against sun-damage.
