in keeping with some of my recent outdoorsy posts, i wanted to share a really cool project by husband and wife team Karson and Mary Shadley. Karson is an industrial designer who designed an outdoor folding chair that will last a lifetime, and look good doing it. the Shape Field Chair is a pared down, minimal design made from extremely durable materials, the kind of product your grandparents used to hand down to you… the kind they really just don’t make anymore. they are running a Kickstarter to get these puppies into production. you can read more about it here, and if you’re a nature lover i think you’d love to support them! i think these would be super handy for the beach. also dig their sweet little logo.

Nature is our sanctuary. Life is simpler when you’re spending your days in the great outdoors. You should spend that precious time comfortably and with objects you’re proud to own and use. Most outdoor folding chairs are built on the cheap and without elegance. Our most loved outdoor gear is the stuff our parents and grandparents handed down to us. We cherish the durability, functional beauty and patina of these items. We designed the Field Chair to meet these same criteria.
