The handsome lines and chiseled contours of the Franklin Dining Arm Chair, a new addition to the Heritage Collection (formerly Classic Ipe), highlight the artisan craftsmanship and responsible use of 100% FSC®-Certified Ipe timber sustainably harvested from the remote, dry-tropical forests of Bolivia. Remarkably durable and resilient to weather and wear, the rich, chocolate brown color of Ipe timber upon arrival can be preserved with occasional care or allowed to gracefully age into a subtle silver patina that makes it welcome in any setting. While designed to be naturally comfortable, an optional cushion is available in an array of distinctive Sunbrella® fabrics.
