Wooden chair with foot rest by pool in front of sea view

Böste lounge chair by Stefan Borselius for Skargaarden

Dezeen Showroom: for Swedish furniture company Skargaarden designer Stefan Borselius created a lounge chair that is designed to weather over time.

The Böste lounge chair is named after the designer's hometown in southern Sweden and presents a Scandinavian take on the classic Westport Chair.

The angle that the chair's back and seat meet at invites users to adopt a gently reclined pose suitable for both unwinding and socialising.

Wide arms function as small side tables and the presence of the separate foot rest allows users to fully lay back when desired.

"Originally, it is believed that the reason for this design was so that the chair could be used on uneven terrain – but today the design is mainly associated with outstanding comfort, which allows the user to sink into the reclining chair and relax," said Skargaarden.

The chair is made from powder-coated stainless steel and sustainably sourced teak, which eventually weathers to a silver-grey hue over time. It's materiality makes it durable enough to withstand outdoor environments during all seasons.

"[The Böste] lounge chair can be placed on soft beaches, hard rocks, grass between your toes, the poolside or a luxurious roof terrace," said the brand.
