Choose your favorite spot in the yard and spend some time enjoying the great outdoors with this comfortable High Back Settee! Tasteful, practical, and affordable, this piece of outdoor furniture is constructed of durable natural cedar and will weather over time to a silver-gray patina. For those who want, our smooth-planed surfaces take stain and paints evenly and easily. Pair up this settee with our other gorgeous, comfortable outdoor furniture pieces such as the Low Back Rocker and Square Coffee Table. The natural process of 'checking'- or slight cracking through the outer growth rings- happens as wood expands and contracts to release moisture. It does not affect the integrity of the wood.
