Carolina Crafted: Blue Ridge Chair Works

Blue Ridge Chair (Green)_0

Blue Ridge Chair Works: After guiding rafts for years on the Cheat, Youghiogheny and Gauley rivers, Alan Davis eventually settled down in Asheville to make handcrafted canoe paddles and furniture. His two-piece Blue Ridge Chair ($113, blueridgechair. com) is a model of sustainability, comfort and Appalachian craftsmanship. It’s also true to the raft-guide aesthetic—it folds flat, dries fast, and comes with a bottle opener.
