Ian Birchall is an old friend who makes these absolutely gorgeous chairs. He’s based in Collingwood, Ontario, and I’ve been wanting to make a trip up there to visit and photograph him for some time, so I've held off posting about his work. But I haven’t been able to put it together and he just launched a new site, so I wanted to share it now.
The Urban Country chair really is impressive. Its minimal design and easy flowing lines, make it easy to see how it would be at home in a modern Manhattan apartment, or by the fireplace at a lodge in the say the Adirondacks or Collingwood. Really it’s just gorgeous.
