The Hudson's Bay Blanket carries with it a constant urge to go modern. Its traditional bold stripes in bright colors are perfect for a modern application. That's why we loved the Cancon Chair when we first laid eyes on it. The design by Terence Cooke takes two Canadian designs and puts them together...

The Cancon Chair ("Canadian Content") combines two Canadian design icons: one obscure, A.J. Donahue's Winnipeg Chair (AKA the Canadian Coconut); and one ubiquitous, the Hudson's Bay Point Blanket. The slipcover, fabricated from the point blanket, bundles up a cherished and very valuable Winnipeg Chair evoking memories of cold evenings at the cabin.

The combination is simply perfect. See more on the Cancon Chair at Cabin.
