Blue Ridge Chair Works
Alan Davis is a man of many talents. An erstwhile white water rafting guide, ski patrolman, fly fisherman and screen printer, he turned his attention to 'tinkering' with another of his favourite hobbies - woodworking - after finishing off his self-built house in Western North Carolina some time in the late 80's. The result was Blue Ridge Chair Works; beautifully crafted, comfortable wooden outdoor furniture that is built to last. The company has grown a bit since these 'cottage' days, but each piece is still manufactured proudly in North Carolina from the finest kiln dried ash - finished off with danish oil - corrosion resistant stainless steel components and fade resistant polyester fabric. Blue Ridge furniture is characterised by thoughtful attention to detail, careful hand-finishing and respect for the environment in their 'zero-waste' policy.
