The Enormous Chair

There is something so warm and welcoming about wooden patio furniture. It may be old and weathered to that glorious grey tone that only happens after years of exposure to sun and rain or it may be new and glistening with a fresh coat of varnish. Either way, wooden furniture evokes a sense of nostalgic comfort that is hard to match. Perhaps it takes us back in time to an era where handcrafted items were the only choice, a time when we didn't have the container ships polluting our air to bring us cheap and tacky furniture that is placed in a store and sold for way too much money. Whatever your reasoning for being moved by wooden furniture, we get it!

This enormous chair is handcrafted from reclaimed lumber and speaks to the eco-terrorist in each of us. The pure size of this chair gives a presence on the patio or in as an interior conversation piece. It's bold, hard lines showcase a contemporary flare born from original west coast materials. The marriage between contemporary and comfort is always a challenging relationship but once mastered it is an art form that comes to life much like a beautiful piece of music.
