The traditional ipé furniture pieces represent the early designs of Jensen Leisure. Rather than assembling with dowels, these go together with hardware fasteners. The chair and bench designs host comfort in contoured, ergonomic seating, while most of the tables utilize larger Ipé slats for a more traditional, cottage style.
Ipé (pronounced “ee-pay”) is a large tropical hardwood tree that grows abundantly throughout Central and South America. Wood from this tree is prized for its durability, strength, and its natural resistance to decay, wet conditions, and insect infestation.
