For over sixty years, OW Lee has been dedicated to the design and production of fine, handcrafted casual furniture. From their manufacturing facility in Ontario, California, artisans combine centuries-old techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to produce beautiful casual furniture. Through three generations, OW Lee has maintained its commitment to quality, and we will continue to produce the finest handcrafted casual furniture available. OW Lee, an American family tradition since 1947.

Back in the early 1950's, post-war families in the USA were establishing households and becoming mobile. Cities were once again vibrant and enjoyable. Suburban communities were being created with clusters of new homes and apartments that included lawns, gardens, patios and pools. Roads were built to connect the suburbs to the cities. Eventually, 46,000 miles of the US Interstate Highway System would connect an entire continent with convenient and economical travel by car and truck. The success of the post-war economy was creating the need for faster air travel. Vacation and leisure time were becoming an expected part of everyday life. Hotels, motels, clubs and vacation resorts were built to take advantage of the explosion in travel and leisure. All of these homes, apartments, hotels, motels, clubs and resorts needed outdoor furniture for the lawn, garden, patio and pool. The Tropitone Furniture Company and the Tropitone® brand were born in 1954 when Mr. Burt M. Baker bought the Sarasota Redwood Furniture Company and switched from redwood to aluminum for the frames of his outdoor patio furniture. The Tropitone Furniture Company was originally established to serve the commercial market for outdoor patio furniture that included hotels, motels, clubs and resorts. Tropitone® brand outdoor patio furniture could soon be found around the lawns, gardens, patios and pools of commercial properties around the country. Tropitone eventually decided to fill consumer demand by offering commercial-performance outdoor patio furniture at retail. The Tropitone® brand of outdoor patio furniture changed the performance standards of an entire industry by applying the rigorous product and service requirements of the highly - demanding commercial outdoor patio furniture market to the residential market.

Seaside Casual’s outdoor collection is a balance of traditional design recreated in modern materials. The coastal communities of the eastern seaboard have molded our aesthetic, while material advancements have allowed us to create a product that can withstand the elements.

Pools, Saunas and Swim Spas

Doughboy pools, “the original portable pool” and the longest-lasting above-ground pools on the market, are so rugged, most models offer a lifetime warranty on all components and “hybrid” pool possibilities. For instance, their exciting deep-end (up to 7 feet deep) and in-ground burial options make Doughboy an affordable alternative.

Splash continues to serve as the industry standard by offering more shapes, sizes, and depths than any other above-ground pool seller in the market. They continue to service more and more commercial customers by providing aquatic products that meet the unique demands of their customers, regardless of the pool’s intended size or use.

In a Catalina Swim Spa you set the mood by creating an atmosphere with the LED lighting, playing your favorite music through our Bluetooth enabled speaker system, sitting in our revolutionary massage seats or just enjoying the soothing sound of the spill over waterfall. It’s no wonder that Catalina Spas are considered to be the most popular spas in the world.

At Thatcher Pools & Spas we often have great values on used hot tubs. Each tub we carry in our warehouse is backed by Thatcher pride. Each tub is certified pre-owned to provide you peace of mind with your purchase.
