Executed by hand, this modern take on the Adirondack chair begins life as a storage pallet, which is then transformed into the low-slung beauty you see pictured above. Embedded magnets let the chair snap up, or collapse back into an easy-to-store, flat configuration. It's the perfect chair for your summertime backyard film festival that then needs to be struck when the credits roll. Or just set it up on the lawn for some relaxing color therapy. Made of repurposed pine and oak (i.e., no additional trees were cut down to make it), paint, and a sealant that protects it from the elements and preserves the unusual hues – ones your old Adirondack [maker] never imagined.
