Hummingbirds Facts

The ancients had various names for this “very curiously” small bird. But it wasn’t  till 1882 that the name Hummingbird stuck. The name comes from the humming sound that you (if you listen very closely) hear from the droning of the hummingbird’s wings in flight. Hummingbirds may have as many as 339 species.  Ranging from the smallest bird in the world at 2 1/4 inch long (Cuban Bee Hummingbird) which compares to the size of a large bee to the Giant Hummingbird at 8 1/2 inches long. (About the size of a purple martin).

Strathwood Gibranta All-Weather Hardwood Arm Chair, Set of 2

Strathwood Gibranta All-Weather Hardwood Arm Chair, Set of 2

Strathwood Gibranta All-Weather Hardwood Arm Chair, Set of 2 Rating:
List Price: $179.99
Sale Price: $143.79
Availability: Usually ships in 24 hours
Eligible For Free Shipping

Product Description

Featuring a slightly reclined seat and arcing arms, this Strathwood arm chair makes a comfortable and handsome addition to any porch, patio, deck, or yard, as well as any indoor living space. Two removable cushions add comfort and decorative appeal. The back cushion adjusts to give support high or low, where it's needed. Corner ties secure the seat cushion to the frame so it won't blow off in a strong wind. The ribbed design on the seat and back is both attractive and functional. The slats are far enough apart to allow rain water to fall through and dry out and close enough together to provide an even seating surface. The Gibranta arm chair is part of a coordinating collection that includes a 2-seater bench and a coffee table. Pair the pieces in the Gibranta collection with other hardwood pieces from Strathwood. Sized for convenience and utility, the arm chair measures 28 inches wide by 24 inches deep by 35 inches tall and weighs 20 pounds. Some easy assembly is required on arrival. Crafted from durable, eucalyptus hardwood, this furniture is intended for outdoor use in all weather. A beautiful hardwood comparable to teak and with excellent weather-resistant properties, Eucalyptus is dense and naturally resistant to rot and insect infestation. Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), there is no doubt about the responsible production and consumption of this wood. The rapid growth of eucalyptus trees makes them more readily available and more easily affordable. In addition, furniture constructed of eucalyptus is light enough to move easily and requires no oiling unless to maintain a desired look. Left untreated, eucalyptus will weather when exposed to the elements, turning a soft shade of silver/gray similar to the weathering of teak. In addition, when untreated, natural splitting or cracks will appear, but this will not affect the durability of the furniture. To guard against this weathering process and to maintain a desired look, apply coats of a hardwood oil. The frequency of necessary oil applications depends on the intensity of the outdoor elements. The furniture has already been oiled prior to packing, and it is recommended that an oil treatment be repeated at least once a year. Giving the furniture an extra treatment before exposing to rain will prolong the “new” look and ensure a longer life. After eucalyptus furniture has weathered, it can be restored if desired by sanding down the surface, cleaning it, and then applying oil to prevent more weathering. To clean it, mix one tablespoon of bleach, five tablespoons of a gentle dishwashing liquid, and a gallon of water, and gently scrub the mixture on the surface of the wood with a soft bristle brush. Rinse the solution from the furniture, and allow it to dry completely in the sun. Developed for use in high humidity, the furniture is best not stored in centrally heated areas, as that could lead to excessive drying out of the wood. Wood that becomes saturated with water and left over an extended period without drying out is more likely to warp and rot. The bases of furniture legs are probably the most vulnerable when it comes to water damage. If wood furniture is kept in the grass, at the poolside, or on a surface that collects rain water, the legs can become saturated. Covering the bottoms of each leg with rubberized material or small sections of cedar fencing material will help protect furniture from rotting from the bottom up. Cushion Care and Cleaning: Gently brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabric and wipe up any spills as soon as they occur. Gently spot clean only with mild soap and cool water using a sponge or soft brush, then air dry cushions in a sunny location. Bring cushions indoors during inclement weather and store in a dry place when not in use. Strathwood furniture has quality, ease of use, and casual elegance at its core. Each piece is rigorously tested for durability, and assembly instructions have been standardized for simplicity from start to finish. Strathwood furniture is sleekly designed, handsomely finished, and built to last. This classic style and reliable craftsmanship will weather ever-changing trends and regular use for years to come.
