10 Easy Pieces: Folding Camp-Style Chairs

May 3, 2023

Whatever happened to camp-style chairs with an appealing design? I remember packing for family camping trips with a pair of 60s-era camp chairs in tow–they were just as comfortable, functional, and durable as the modern plastic-coated options. No, they didn’t feature a removable headrest or multiple drink holders, but if you ask me, I’d rather spare those luxuries for a chair with quality design.
