"Fuzzy Captain" Reclaimed Oak and Steel Lounge Chair

Estimated Production Time12-13 weeks


The Fuzzy Captain is a variation on Evan's faithful captains chair design. It combines bigger and beefier proportions with his dynamic design to make for an intensely relaxing sit. Evan’s original concept for this piece was to make a chair that literally felt like it was embracing you as you sat in it. The Icelandic sheep pelt backrest cushion fit that concept perfectly. Always striving to give his pieces personality, Evan chose a reclaimed oak barn beam as the wood for the chair frame to give texture, nostalgia and familiarity to this unique creature. For the upholstery he teamed up with two long time friends, the creative force behind “De Islas”, a designer textile company. They hand draw or paint all their designs and then transform them into repeatable patterns for a totally unique look that really works with the Fuzzy Captains big personality.
