High/Low: The Folding Wood Beach Chair

August 29, 2018

While attending grade school in Sweden, I took a mandatory hemslöjd (arts and crafts) class where we worked on wood and sewing projects, including making a simple beach chair. Considering that my mother keeps everything my brother and I ever made, I’m sure it can be located beneath some dust in my parents attic.

If you don’t want to take the handy route, consider these two options at different ends of the price spectrum.

AOO Barcelona’s Pepitu Deck Chair folds compactly for travel; €349.
