Handcrafted from 100% salvaged 70-gallon oak wine barrels, each one of these steamer deck chair-inspired wine barrel folding chairs is individually numbered with the name of the winery branded under the seat. The chairs are designed by Whit McLeod [1] whose company builds all its pieces from reclaimed materials. “I try to preserve the wood’s second life as a barrel, and its first life as a tree,” says McLeod. Visually striking, comfortable, and built to last, the chair’s distinctive form looks as good as it is sustainable.
