For over 65 years, OW Lee has been dedicated to the design & production of fine, handcrafted casual furniture. From their 157,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Ontario, California, artisans combine centuries-old techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to produce beautiful casual furniture.
OW Lee Company uses only the highest-quality materials in the production of their furniture. Carbon steel, galvanized steel, and 6061 alloy aluminum are meticulously chosen for superior strength as well as rust and corrosion resistance.
Materials are individually measured and precision-cut to ensure a smooth and accurate fit. Steel and aluminum pieces are bent into exact shapes and then hand-forged with a hammer and anvil, a process unchanged since blacksmiths in the Middle Ages.
A full circumference weld is applied wherever metal components intersect. This eliminates the possibility of moisture entering the interior of tubing or in a crevice, a process that guards against rust and corrosion. All welds are then ground and sanded to create a seamless transition from one component to another.
