Crate & Barrel Jardin Chair

Bringing a whimsical, found-object feel to the sustainable realm, this '40s-inspired chair — one of 50 eco-amenable upholstered styles offered by Crate & Barrel — features a kiln-dried-hardwood frame and soy- and corn-based cushions (in place of petroleum-based ones), and still feels as if it were discovered in the back room of a vintage shop.
