Etsy Find: Birch Plywood Lounge Chair


It’s been a little while since I posted an Etsy find. The recent resurgence in my coaster sales — about four set in as many days — has me looking at Etsy again.

This time I have for your viewing pleasure a lovely Scandinavian-influenced birch plywood lounge chair.

This chair made by Michaelarras is somewhat reminiscent of Knolls Armless Risom Lounge Chair. I actually like Michaelarras’s chair a bit better. The base makes it look a bit stronger than the Knoll. It sells for $400 on Etsy, roughly half of the Knoll chair. The chairs are custom made for you; so you can choose the webbing color.

You know how I feel about Etsy. Buy hand made, help an artist and often get quality, craftsmanship and value seldom seen in anything mass-produced.
