A Time To Get x Environment

What's better than a comfortable, modern chair made in California? How about a comfortable, modern chair made in California, wrapped in rare, Korean War era USMC Mitchell camouflage and FREE. The good people at Environment Furniture and I happen to have just that.

Environment is known for their sustainable furniture and use of reclaimed woods and materials, which includes their iconic couches and chairs covered in vintage US Army tent canvas. I've long been a fan of the company and was stoked to be a part of it in offering this one-of-a-kind chair exclusively to ATG readers. As much as I'd like to rig the contest and end up with this thing in my living room, we thought it ethical to include a third party to handle all contest logistics. So, it's fair game. The 10 week event concludes on Feb 1st, so you have plenty of time to get in there and make it yours.

This particular camouflage pattern is rare in its own right, and to source enough raw material to cover a chair is near impossible -- that's why there's only one.

Heather Heron, an independent designer who is a frequent collaborator with Environment, is offering a small line of bags made from the same rare camo material. Look for those to drop sometime soon at Environment showrooms.
