The Adirondack Chair Reimagined

A modern take on the Adirondack chair by Eric Pfeiffer for SF-based Council Design has us rethinking our outdoor seating.

Made with durable, treated Southern pine (a product from Perennial Wood) and a powdered-coated steel rod base, the chairs are designed to withstand the elements and can be used indoors or outdoors. Contact Council Design for ordering information; read a quick Q & A with Pfeiffer at Dwell.
