Made at Home
During the 2011 Toronto International Design Festival, MADE Design presented MADE at Home - An Exhibition of New Canadian Design for the Home, and invited us to participate. We set ourselves the task of reinterpreting the archetypal Muskoka chair from a west coast perspective. Inspired by the simplicity and economy of the original 1905 Westport Adirondack, the Pender chair is a distillation of the best characteristics of these classic designs infused with the spirit of our west coast home.
We have used red alder, a beautifully warm British Columbian wood and finished Pender with linseed oil, beeswax and little elbow grease.
