Spanish designer Dvelas introduced their new nautical furniture line made from upcycled vintage sail cloth last week during Valencia Disseny Week. Each lounge chair comes with a tag explaining where the sail cloth was sourced, from the manufacturer to the boat from which it was salvaged. Clearly, since the pieces are made from real sailing material, this is furniture tailor-made for outdoor living.
According to Cool Hunting, "Despite basing their company in landlocked Pamplona, the brand takes inspiration from sailing culture and a love of sun and relaxation. Their pieces reflect a minimalist aesthetic and an eye for functionality. The Genois chair is a bean bag design with sail cloth that tightens to provide support while remaining somewhat free-form. Meanwhile, the company's clean Vaurien design is a sunshade lounger made for beach use."
Dvelas also makes hangers from hemp rope and brass carabiners, and (my favorite part) allows customers to send in their own sailcloth to be made into one of their custom pieces. So if you're a sailor saddened at the thought of parting with a beloved sail, keep it alive this way!
