I’ve a feeling Jardinique is a Canada based small outdoor furniture manufacturer. Maybe even a “cottage furniture maker”. The lodge Chair is a variation of the Westport Chair, designed by Thomas Lee in 1903, but commercialized by Harry Bunnell, whom Thomas Lee had shown the chair and who immediately had reckognized its potential and patented the design.
The Westport Chair is the predecessor of the Adirondack or Muskoka Chair which has many variations nowadays.
Painted in clear yellow an excellent addition for our Yellow Chair month here on Chair Blog.
Jardinique builds Canadian climate-tested, classically inspired outdoor furniture that can live outdoors year round. These pieces are perfect for gardens, patios, balconies and docks. Each chair is shipped flat and ready to assemble with nothing more than a screwdriver and an hour or two to spare.
Finger is an armchair by Nendo’s Oki Sato created for the famed Spanish outdoor furniture manufacturer Gandia Blasco. It’s made of 100% recyclable rotating molded polyethylene and can come with a matching Finger table, which makes it obviously perfect for those refreshing summer drinks by the pool.
While we’re still on the subject of Emanuele Magini, let me share another design that caught my eye – the Lazy Football chair. Just like most of Emanuele’s creations, the chair combines two worlds into one: the active game of outdoor football meets the lazier version of watching the sport at home. Inspired by the evolution of the designer’s love of football, Lazy Football is undoubtedly a chair for adults in touch with their inner child, and even though it’s not positioned as kids’ furniture, it’s easy to imagine it in a children’s room. Sold on Garage Design website.
Size: 70 x 43 x 90 cm
