Laid-back Living The Siena Chaise uses modern lines to create the ultimate relaxation experience. Wide slats add comfort to the reclining lounger, which also offers a sliding tray accessible from both sides. Constructed from shorea, a tropical hardwood comparable to but slightly less expensive than teak, the chaise contains an abundance of natural oils that shield it against rot, rodents and wear and tear.
