Jolyon Yates' collection of chairs, aptly titled ODE, is an homage to those who have influenced his craft including his friends, family, mother nature and probably several mid-century modern furniture designers. These two shining examples from the series (the Breeze or Savannah rocker at top left and the Ocean rocker at bottom right) are hand-crafted from birch veneer and actually look quite comfortable, a quality sometimes lacking Yates' predecessors' works. It's about time rocking chairs got their due in proper. (via SwipeLife)
