Like all of our Forever Redwood products, each Robin Retro chair is built to order by hand. Each timber is hand selected from the country’s best restoration forestry timber. There are no cheap substitute materials here - just high quality redwood and stainless steel to bolt it together.
- The Robin's Retro Chair was a popular piece in the 1960's and 70's.
- Straight sturdy lines and no frills please. The Robin's Patio Chair a beautiful long lasting addition to your home that retains the flair of a bygone era.
- You can have it only in one size for now. But, if you pester us enough, odds are we will cave in and make it custom sized or detailed for you.
- If you plan to order it with cushions, go to www.patiolane.com and check out the thousands of fabrics they have available and let us know the name and number of the one you want us to make your cushions out of. We will order the fabric. Just make sure to go to the Select Options tab and select to add Cushions to your order.

Assembly Instructions for: Robin's Retro Patio Chair
All You Need is a Few Tools and a Friend.
Assembly is best done by two people and usually takes about half a day to a day, depending on size. Pergolas need a ratchet wrench, a hammer and a ladder to put them together. In some cases, you might need a drill to attach the posts into concrete. As with all our products, we preassemble pergolas in our shop to ensure everything fits together. All hardware is included and all parts are clearly labeled before it is shipped. We also include detailed step-by-step instructions.
Take a look at our assembly instructions below for specific details. If you plan to pour concrete to hold the posts, the project will require an additional half day prior to assembly. Please do the concrete pour a few days prior to assembly to allow the concrete to cure.
Special talent is not required to re-assemble our pergolas. But, if you would like help, just let us know. We have our own team for installations in California, Nevada and Southern Arizona and a network of local contractors we recommend for farther afield.
Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year-round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesn’t hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you don’t have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish.
