Vermont Cedar Chair Co. constructs outdoor furniture using leftover wood from the natural selection process of forgotten trees. Honing strict sustainable harvesting methods, every part of the tree is used – from the base, which makes up the legs, to the top branches, which become the seat.
The company offers chairs, rocking chairs, tables, benches, ottomans, and lamps. Many of its chairs, benches, and ottomans are made with a “suspension seat,” which molds to the sitter’s body and is inspired by the hammock.
White cedar wood is mostly used for the furniture due to its bug, rot, and water resistant properties, and because it weathers to a silvery gray over time. Manila fiber roping is used for its longevity, strength, and durability.
Only trees that are under four inches in diameter are used. The entire tree is used and sourced locally.
