Pallet Chairs

Pallets are really Michael Janzen’s specialty from Tiny House Design, but I happen to like them too and enjoy seeing what can be built with them also.

Craig one of our readers, sent me a couple of cool links to chairs that are being built with pallets and if you know of any more I would appreciate you sending them my way.


The chair above is designed and made by studiomama, a while back we featured a beach house designed by the same company. As we all know wooden shipping pallets are usually thrown away after each use but this comfortable chair has been designed to recycle them. Plans are available at studiomama so you can make your own. The next chair pictured below is also designed by studiomama.

The chair at the bottom of the article was designed by Andrew Montgomery of Falls Church, Va., a fifth-year architecture student in Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture + Design, did. He designed a chair with a single shipping pallet and it won the Green Stewardship Award from Design Within Reach.

Montgomery said, “Once a pallet is used and discarded, no one usually looks past its original purpose to ship goods. But underneath all the mistreatment during its initial use, there is beauty.” You can read the full article here.
