Rock the Slopes

When your little winter daredevil isn't out hitting the slopes, he or she can chill out in this cool rocking chair. The one-of-a-kind seating, handmade by Mike Bellino from a retired snowboard and unfinished Canadian cedar, will be equally at home in a sporty bedroom nook or on a cabin porch.

The snowboard is treated with a polyurethane finish, but the wooden portions are left untreated. Instead, Bellino allows wood to undergo a natural finishing process called "checking," which creates naturally-occurring cracks that do not compromise the integrity of the wood. Handmade in Millbury, Massachusetts.

Michael Bellino ignored the advice of his ski instructors when they told him "never sit back on your skis." He made his first ski chair from old racing and mogul skis gathered from the ski and bike shop he managed, and still enjoys lounging in that chair at his lake house today. Since creating that prototype, he's expanded his sporting equipment designs, recycling over 20,000 items each year: snow and water skis, wake and snow boards, hockey sticks, baseball bats, and golf clubs.
