Graphic Recycled Garden Furniture

I am not a fan of the current trend that extols us to grab a shipping pallet or some cast off boards and use them to make something else.  Most of what results still looks like garbage.  Who cares if the materials are free?

These chairs by Old & Board satisfy my designer instincts and are made from recycled wood.

Super graphics and high style

I saw them in person (and sat in them) at both Flora Grubb Gardens and The Gardener while I was in San Francisco last month.

    Well, I’m a fan of recycling materials but these still look junky to me so I’d pass on them. My dad , years ago, used
    shipping pallets for the floor of an addition to our home. Of course, they were covered by the final layer of flooring.

    Nancy–That’s what I love about being a designer! Everyone has their own opinions and ideas about what they like and it’s my job to figure that out. –s
