The Topsail chair is named for a North Carolina beach, which is fitting since each collection from Drum Works Furniture is made in the state.

The chairs are made from recycled 55-gallon steel drums and covered in a powder-coated paint finish and Sunbrella Castanet Beach acrylic indoor-outdoor fabric. The chair is about 35 inches long with a 29-inch seating area and storage beneath the seating. Choose from several colors. $905 at
