Jensen produces beautifully designed outdoor furniture that will endure the extremities of nature and repeated sittings throughout a lifetime of reading, dining, and gardenside solitude.
Jensen’s Difference is in Heartwood
The Ipe timber that goes into Jensen’s furniture is certified by Rainforest Alliance as 100% FSC® Pure. A strikingly beautiful timber, Jensen Ipe weathers with strength and elegance and is incredibly strong and dense with very high wear durability. A handsome chocolate brown when new, the sun gracefully transforms Ipe to a mature, elegant silver patina.
The furniture is made of 100% heartwood. The heartwood portion of a log is the most dimensionally stable and is only found in slow-growing, century old trees. The exclusive use of heartwood in outdoor furniture is critical for maintaining the long-term strength and integrity of the mortise and tenon joinery throughout the seasonal extremities of freeze and thaw, and extended wet and dry periods.
