We've seen chairs made from recycled wine barrels before — we've even seen chairs made from recycled whiskey barrels. But, we think we might like these wine barrel chairs from Barrelly Made It in San Diego best.
Now, at $1,500, these Barrelly Made It chairs aren't cheap, but they are handsome.
Each chair is designed and assembled by hand from reused wine barrels. Now, we can't afford one, but we'd argue that these chairs fall into that long term investment category. If you could afford one, and you loved 'em, we'd say go for it. This chair — as opposed to a chair from, say, Ikea — would probably last a lifetime and you'd be supporting working designers and artists.
