Meant for use outside, designer Zachary A's furniture appears to be made of very heavy concrete, but is actually light enough to lift easily — as demonstrated here by the designer himself.
Here, Zachary sits in one of his pieces. While they appear heavy, they're all actually extremely light and easy to move and care for. These unique pieces, all of which are made in Chicago, can be used inside or out for a rustic yet sophisticated minimalistic look.
Here, a side table in the shape of France, the Bois Français, is seen from the side. The detail runs down the side in accurate relief.
From the designer:
Zachary A. creates intriguing contemporary furniture for the indoors and out. This collection is designed to appear (and endure) like sculptured concrete at a fraction of the weight.Treated for a modern rustic, weathered look, these earthy yet sophisticated home accents are an elegant juxtaposition of old and new.
