The chair is for covered areas outside in summertime and for indoor use. The chair can stand a rain shower, but not daily rain. When used outdoors the rattan frame will turn greyish like teak. Do not use in heavy rain and do not leave outside all year long.
The Madeleine Arm Chair is a popular style that features a wider seat than other chairs in Sika Design's Affaire collection chairs. This stackable bistro chair is a modern update of a classic Paris bistro chair. The Madeleine chair is a favorite arm chair among restaurants and cafes because of its durability and comfort. This bistro chair is hand made using the finest Malacca cane rattan, stainless hardware, and our exclusive ArtFibre™ that withstands the effects of inclement weather including rain, snow and sun. Each chair is meticulously handcrafted using the century-old method perfected by the Danish skilled cane makers in the 1970s. This technique creates signature organic marks by bending each piece of rattan into shape. These colorful chairs are stylish, comfortable, and durable enough for use in restaurants as well as private kitchens, patios, or gardens. Designed for indoor or covered outdoor use, the chair's rattan frame will patina to a lovely light gray finish over time. If the original natural rattan look is desired, rub with linseed oil.
