OUTDOOR LOUNGE CHAIR
OUTDOOR LOUNGE CHAIR
At Rewilder, home means the physical structure we live in, but also our home, the Earth. Our new line of sustainable furniture is designed to empower you to make an impact from home, for home.
The Zero Waste Lounge Chair is made from super strong, durable, and waterproof Airbag fabric, and works both indoors and outdoors. The entire piece is 100% upcycled, including the foam scrap stuffing salvaged from the mattress industry.
This lounger's generous size and soft edges are designed for downtime alone or together. Splash-proof and ready for relaxation regardless of season or situation, our Zero Waste Lounge Chair promises comfort, style, and sustainability.
- W 32" x D 39" x H 26"
- Handsewn in Los Angeles from upcycled Airbag material
- Get it dirty, hose it down, wipe it clean (or spot clean with soap and water)
- Interior upcycled nylon pillows with stuffing
- Double stitched construction with exposed seams
- Waterproof shell for indoor or outdoor use
- Each piece is unique, with custom markings from the material's first life as an airbag
The exterior shell alone diverts 1,032 LBS OF CO2!
This is the equivalent of planting 21 trees, or driving 1167 miles in a passenger car (from Los Angeles, California to Bozeman, Montana).
STORY OF THE MATERIALS
Designed to save lives, this high tech material is sourced from factory end rolls trashed during airbag production. Diverting a single square foot of airbag fabric saves 26.5 lbs CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Airbag fabric is silicon coated nylon, which makes it incredibly durable for outdoor use, and easy cleaning.
STREET POLE BANNER VINYL
These advertising banners are made from polyester and polyvinyl that is typically thrown in a landfill after a single use. Each 3 pound street pole banner diverts 45 tablespoons of plastic getting into the soil and water. Saving and upcycling these materials directly impacts our health. The vinyl is virtually indestructible, super easy to clean, and makes the perfect durable bottom for the outdoor furniture pieces.
This high density nylon fabric is used for the interior pillows when we stuff them for you. This fabric is automotive factory discard, originally used for out-of-sight linings. It’s tough, lightweight and machine washable.
We upcycle thread from a large factory that discards ¼ spools at shift changes to keep work flow at maximum efficiency.
Stuffed with foam scraps from the mattress / furniture industry. This material is synthetic, non-biodegradable, and not recyclable. Because it’s shredded and lightweight, it’s particularly harmful if it ends up in oceans and waterways. It’s great as upcycled stuffing for our furniture because it's soft, lightweight and puffs up for comfort and support.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
We have been playing with the idea of home goods for years because our upcycled materials are durable, waterproof, and stain resistant – all qualities that make wonderful furniture and upholstery, especially for outdoor use. When the global pandemic hit, our business changed. We felt uncomfortable selling bags to people in quarantine, and reflected on our mission of diverting trash from landfill, and vision in changing the way people see trash. The Rewilder furniture line was created with our mission in mind, starting with the "Stuff Yourself" pouf, and eventually growing to include a soft chair and ottoman, all made from favorite upcycled materials. We hope you love it as much as we do :)
