John Caswell is a clever, whimsical designer from Bristol. His latest creation is a simple chair back that can be wedged into a bale of hay making sitting on straw more comfortable. I know what you’re going to say. Sitting on straw more comfortable? And why not just sit on a bale of hay like a normal person? Because without amusing design and fun oddities, we’d all be in our beige apartments with functional furniture and proper reading light.
The Bale Backer seems like a charming way to kick back on a farm and take in the sunset with a glass of wine. Who’s with me? And who has a farm? No word on pricing yet but his website mentions hopes of online availability soon.
