Upcycled Outdoor Chair Designs That We Love

This summer, we’ve got the upcycling bug, and just in case it might be contagious, we’ve rounded up five upcycled projects to lend a little staying power to your outdoor space. (And by ‘staying power’ we mean that these chairs are so cool, your family and friends will never want to vacate!) 


Rocking Chair Made From Repurposed Barrels 

Turns out, the function of wine barrels transcend the enclosure of mere wine and compost. Chanel the Italian design company, Sestini & Corti, with this rustically-inspired, potentially DIY-able idea.

Colorful Storage Seats 

Multi-functional seating, be in outdoor seating or in, is on-trend right now. This repurposed tire seating merges multiple functions: 1. providing comfortable seating; 2. providing enclosed storage; 3. providing a pop of color of your choosing to your space.

Wood (tree stump) Stools 

For sturdy seating that simply won’t let you down, we love this rustic stool idea, using salvaged tree stump as the base.

Small Tree Tables 

And while we’re on the topic of tree stumps, we love the minimalistic design of these small, Scandinavian-inspired side tables. These could double as chairs for children, or simply serve as compliments to your existing outdoor seating scheme.
