Recycled Wood Chairs by John Booth

designer john booth has created these simple chairs which make use found and recycled wood from used pieces of furniture. each chair is custom built based on the available pieces booth finds. as a result each chair is unique and one of a kind. however all the chairs share the same simple construction and materials. booth has even created some smaller versions in the collection for children.
