Emmet chair by Loll Designs

Greg Benson never could have predicted a future in furniture-making when he, along with his brother and a friend, followed their love of the outdoors and extreme sports to Duluth, Minnesota to manufacture TrueRide custom skate parks. While attempting to reuse scraps of recycled plastic sheeting, Greg employed a simple philosophy: what makes sense for skate parks makes sense for outdoor furniture. Four years later, Loll Designs was in business, with an energy and passion for nature that continues to touch everything they create.Loll staffers work and play hard. It's not unusual to find the team testing furniture on the deck of their hilltop building or going for a group run along the Superior Hiking Trail, right out their back door. These are people who really get outdoor furniture. Rather than finding short northern summers to be a hindrance, everyone at Loll jokes that the long winter actually gives them more time to be thoughtful about designing furniture.
 Emmet is made in Duluth, Minnesota, from 100 percent recycled HDPE—each chair is made from the equivalent of 400 recycled milk jugs. Durable, comfortable and easy to care for, Emmet will transform your idea of outdoor living.
