Ipe is a hardwood which grows in South America. It is an extremely hard and heavy wood. Because of its natural resistance to decay and insects it is a wonderful choice for Adirondack chairs. It has a very long life span of over twenty-five years. The wood is really quiet beautiful. It is primarily a dark brown color with lighter brown streaks and a reddish hue. If left untreated it will turn to a silvery gray patina but it will not split or become rough. If treated with a UV inhibitor the natural color can be maintained with yearly applications. You can also pressure wash the piece to return it to its natural color.
