Royal Botania Exes

X-Shaped Dining Chairs and Tables

Tapered teak armrests, X-shaped frames, and round table tops define Exes, a new dining collection from Royal Botania that promises an excess of comfort and style. This sleek collection is an artful integration of curved edges and straight, angular lines in a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic. The X motif is playfully completed with X-shaped openings at the back of each chair, which anchor the back cushion to the seat rest.

Choose from a variety of fine Italian ceramic table tops or, for a warmer look, wide-slat natural teak. The collection includes six sizes: two circles, two elliptical ovals, and two oblong rectangles with curved edges. Each table top is fixed to a sleek powder coated aluminum frame, configured in with either four angular legs or in a tripod. 

Exes is right at home in any industrial or mid-century modern setting. For additional finish and frame options, contact customer service. Folia dining chairs also make an excellent match for Exes tables.

Aluminum or Powder-Coated Aluminum is perfect for outdoor use due to its light weight and being highly weather resistant.
Caring for Aluminum. It is easy to care for: just use mild soap and water (no metal scrubbers please) to clean the surface. To repair minor scratches caused by handling, use touch-up pens in corresponding color.

Ceramics. Ceramic table tops are made of inorganic materials that crystallize at very high temperatures and are thus very hard and resistant to wear. This material, with a sleek and modern appearance, is distinguished by the following exceptional properties:

  • Extremely resistant to abrasions and scratches
  • 100% water- and frost-resistant
  • Resistant to stains
  • Easy to maintain
  • UV-resistant

Caring for Ceramics. Ceramic table tops are easy to clean with a sponge and an all-purpose household cleaner. Afterwards, rinse and/ or wipe off to avoid streaks. Although the ceramic surface is extremely hard and wear-resistant, we do not recommend the use of cleaners with an abrasive or polishing action. Use only sponges, soft nylon brushes or cloths. Do not use brushes with hard bristles. Algae and moss can occur in places that remain cool and moist for prolonged periods of time and which are exposed to very little sunlight. Thanks to the closed surface, algae and moss will only grow on the top of the surface, making good cleaning very easy.

Teak. As Royal Botania never compromises on quality, only mature, carefully selected, fully grown teakwood is used, all of it harvested in accordance with the strictest environmental standards. The wood's renowned durability is due to its high content of natural oils. The resulting minimal moisture absorption prevents warping and thus gives teak its enormous stability. In addition, teakwood is highly resistant to attacks by pests. It is because of these qualities of matured teakwood, as well as its exceptionally beautiful color and structure, that it is a premium wood especially suitable for outdoor environments.
Caring for Teak. The beautiful thing about teak furniture is that you really don't have to do anything to maintain it unless you really want to. Set it up and leave it out all year long, and it will still hold up year after year, no matter where you live. It's able to withstand climate changes without cracking or warping (or needing maintenance). It will change color as it ages, and the eventual result is a distinguished that is a mark of true teak furniture. But if you prefer the golden brown color of new teak you should click here, for products that can help maintain that color longer. We'll warn you: maintaining the golden brown color will take some work. Our recommendation is to let your teak weather.
One final note: DO NOT use teak oil on your teak furniture if you're planning to use it outdoors! Adding oil will cause your beautiful teak furniture to turn black with mildew. It's a bad idea, and something we learned the hard way. As tempting as it is, don't do it. The furniture has enough oil in it already to last for decades, you don't need to replenish it.
