Ipe timber exhibits a deep chocolate-brown grain when new that may be allowed to naturally age to an elegant silver patina or brought back to an as new finish at any time. Jensen Outdoor’s Ipe furniture comes with a Penofin Verde oil finish already applied, which protects and conditions the wood to prevent absorption of moisture, cracking, and drying while allowing the wood to naturally gray over time.
Although Ipe is naturally stable, small checks in the surface (minuscule openings of the wood grain at the ends) may appear if the furniture is placed in a very dry or sunny environment. Superficial checking in no way affects the structural integrity and longevity of the furniture and will in fact disappear when the environment becomes moist.
The Forest Stewardship Council, FSC®, was formed in 1993 with the mission to promote environmentally sound, socially beneficial, and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests. Their vision is to meet current needs for forest products without compromising the health of those ecosystems for future generations. Today, more than 380 million acres of forest have been independently certified, carrying the FSC® label on their products.
Jensen Outdoor (FSC® C013910) is FSC®-Certified because its forests are inspected and certified against strict standards based on FSC’s 10 Principles of Forest Stewardship. These inspections are undertaken by independent organizations, such as the Soil Association, that are accredited by the FSC. In order to be given FSC-certification, a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable manner.
This is what makes the FSC system unique and ensures that a forest is well-managed from the protection of indigenous people’s rights to the methods of felling trees. Forests that meet these strict standards are given FSC-certification and the timber allowed to carry the FSC label.
