Telescope Folding Camp Chair

Telescope Folding Camp Chair


From the outset, one of our goals as makers has been to re establish a passion for quality manufacturing in the United States. Part of that goal to us has been to highlight great American Manufacturers of the past through restoring, remaking and building on vintage and antique found household objects and furniture that we feel a kindred spirit with. The first of those pieces to be offered online are these beautiful Hardwood Maple Folding camp chairs originally manufactured by the Telescope Folding Furniture Co. of Grandville, NY. They originally were created using canvas seats and backs that we have recreated with beautiful American Tanned Wickett and Craig Natural Veg Tan leather that will age to a beautiful caramel brown with years of use. Its folding hinges, originally black, have been refinished to Natural Steel and steel screws swapped for beautiful Brass screws. Finished with upgraded brass accent caps on the seat back rails and brass seat support rods.

These chairs are a beautiful testament to American Craft and History that will be the focal point of any space they're placed in and go on for many years telling the story of an American Heritage of beauty in simplicity and fine craft.
