Ipe Dining Ensemble by The Branch Studio
The Branch Studio Ipe top garden table and five vintage french chairs have been restored and finished with the Branch signature patina. The original vintage french table base is topped with a hand crafted Ipe top. When compared to teak, Ipe has nearly four times the hardness and is so dense that it actually sinks in water. Concrete and steel have a class 1 fire rating—and so does Ipe. It has many other names, but the one that stands out is ironwood. The quality of this wood is appreciated because like teak, it’s durable, insect resistant and decay resistant. These superb qualities make it ideal for use as outdoor furniture, with coloring and grain that give it pleasing tone and quality. Ipe is chocolate colored when new. Over time, sunlight transforms the color into an elegant silver patina. Dining table measures 33 1/2″ square by 29″ high. The chair frames are tubular steel, with perforated seats and backs. 15″ wide seat, 16″ wide at back, 30 1/2″ tall. Set of 5 chairs included.
