Jensen Outdoor Furniture is a Popular Choice

One of the top-selling brands at Casual Furniture World is Jensen Outdoor (formerly known as Jensen Leisure). Most customers are first drawn to Jensen Outdoor furniture due to the overall beauty, style, and smooth finish of the ipe wood.  


What is Ipe (pronounce “ee-pay” wood)? 

Ipe is one of the hardest and most durable woods available which makes it naturally insect and rot resistant. Ipe is even harder and denser than widely popular teak furniture.  In fact, it is so hard it is nearly non-flammable.  Jensen Outdoor sources their Ipe lumber through a land-lease program in Eastern Bolivia, earning them FSC accreditation for multiple years in a row.

Ipe wood is so durable, that it is often used for decking in high-foot-traffic outdoor areas such as most of the boardwalks in New Jersey

One of the most asked questions is "Will Jensen Outdoor Furniture require maintenance?". The answer is “Yes” and “No”. Ipe furniture, if left alone and exposed to the elements, will naturally and gracefully age to a silver finish, requiring no maintenance. The durability of the piece is not compromised but it will lose its showroom finish. However, with ongoing proper care and maintenance, you can maintain and even restore the showroom finish using Penofin Verde restoration kits. We find that Jensen furniture placed in covered spaces really shines, providing lasting beauty with very little care and maintenance.

The assembly of Jensen Outdoor Furniture can sometimes be quite difficult. For this reason, Jensen Outdoor requires that all furniture be purchased from a local and authorized dealer. Your furniture can then be assembled and delivered by knowledgeable teams, protecting the 5-year warranty that is provided by Jensen Outdoor. The warranty may be void on furniture that is shipped to customers unassembled.
