How to Care for Your Tamarack Chair

May 13, 2020 2 min read

You just purchased or are thinking about purchasing your newest member of the backyard oasis you've been dreaming up for months and you want to make sure it's taken care of. We get it. Should you leave it out in the sun or rain? Do you have to take it inside every day? What will happen if it's experiencing all the elements?

All valid questions and this blog post should clear them up.

Leaving Your Tamarack Chair Outside

You can leave the chair outside since it is built for outdoor use. However, we do recommend that the chair is not left in hot or cold weather situations for an extended period of time. To increase the lifespan of your product, it’s recommended to bring them inside for those rainy and snowy months or a shaded area for the summer months when not in use. The Tamarack Chair is sealed to protect the wood from these weather conditions, but it is still a wood product so exposing it to too much sun, rain, or cold weather will depreciate the chair quicker.

At the end of the day – it’s a handmade wood product that will age while you make memories around a fire pit with the people you love. Tamarack Chair, let's grow old together!



Extending the Life of Your Tamarack Chair

When the chairs are made, they are sealed with a water-based sealant (instead of an oil-based sealant that often leaves wood furniture peeling when exposed to sunshine). 

Here is a water-based sealant at Home Depot that our team recommends applying annually to your Tamarack Chair to extend its life.  And to learn how to best apply, check out the video on their product page for that wood sealer.

Another option is covering your chair during these weather conditions or utilizing its foldability to carry and stash away indoors.


How to Keep Your Tamarack Chair Clean

Simply wipe down your chair with a damp cloth to clean your chair or wipe down with a dry towel after rain to help care for it. These chairs are made of a durable and sustainable wood (acacia) and built for your indoor and outdoor enjoyment.


How much weight can my Tamarack Chair hold?

The Tamarack Chair has a weight capacity of 250 lbs of love.
