Today, Alan is the founder of Blue Ridge Chair Works, whose mission is to craft American-made outdoor furniture that’s built to last. Instead of flimsy beach chairs that buckle and tear, or clunky folding chairs that don’t fold very well, Blue Ridge chairs are compact powerhouses. They’re made in Asheville, N.C., with kiln-dried Ash hardwood and finished with protective Danish oil. Fade-resistant polyester fabric forms the seat, and stainless-steel hardware holds the components together.
Ideal for people on the go, the two-piece Blue Ridge chair can be assembled and disassembled in seconds, and an adjustable shoulder strap makes it easy to carry to the beach, campsite, or outdoor concert. The roomy Outer Banks Chair has four reclining positions, mesh cup holders built into the sculpted armrests, and a built-in carrying handle. Comfy and sturdy, they’ll be your go-to summer chairs for years to come.
