Inhabitat [2]first spotted Loll Designs [3] at Haute Green [2] in 2007, where their sleek 3-slat Adirondack [4] chairs were hard to ignore. Since then this Duluth, MN-based design outfit has hit its stride, launching several new collections with leading national retailers. From their iconic adirondacks to their brand new low-profile outdoor living rooms and practical stackables, Loll Designs’ sustainably crafted furnishings [5] make lounging around that much more irresistible.

The founders of Loll [3] are all former skaters [6] (and modern lollygaggers) who made their entrepreneurial debut as skate park [7] builders. Eventually, from construction scraps [8] they could not bear to throw away, they started building chairs. From this experimentation emerged an innovative design company that today makes a wide range of sustainable outdoor furnishings from recycled clear plastic milk cartons [9], or high-density polyethylene (HDPE [10]). For table surfaces, they use Richlite [11]. The result is stylish, sustainable, and fairly affordable modern outdoor furniture.

New this year are the elegant and low-profile Monterey Collection [12] and the Emmett Adirondack [12], both available exclusively through Room & Board [13]. For those who prefer the classics, the iconic 3-slat Adirondack that put Loll on the map is now available exclusively through DWR [14]. Beyond the home, Loll’s stackable Al Fresco [15]collection of tables, benches, stools, and stackable chairs are perfect for commercial use. The entire Loll collection is available through Denizen Design Gallery [16] for commercial projects.
