ICFF Field Report: Radioactive Adirondack chairs from outer space

They look like vintage furniture...until they start to glow.

Caroline McCarthy/CNET Networks

The 'C' in ICFF stands for 'contemporary,' and indeed, you're not going to see any Chippendales or mahogany armoires on the show floor. So it was a tad bizarre to see an old-school Adirondack outdoor chair among all the experimental pieces. As it turns out, however, this chair by Douglas Homer for Loll Designs isn't your average piece of patio furniture. That's because it glows in the dark.

This line of furniture is appropriately titled "AfterGlow," and in addition to the Adirondack, Loll has also designed an ottoman and an armless double seat. These could look very cool and eerie at night when they give off that cool green glow. Perfect for the beach house!

The best part? They're made from 100% post-consumer recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE), primarily derived from recycled milk jugs. Go buy one and make Al Gore proud!
