Paul and Rene Berube relaxing in their new furniture enjoying a little "Island Time".,


Paul Rene Berube Tampa, Florida




Hi Markus - We LOVE our new high top Adirondack chairs that you made for us! We sit in them on our balcony overlooking the 7th hole of the Isla Del Sol golf course and have a beautiful view of the green. You are very talented! Wish our balcony was bigger so we could buy more!!!

Thanks again,

Kelly & Chuck Mower, Isla Del Sol, Florida







"Life's always better on Island Time!"

stan_garnett2 "Markus, we've had the two chairs on the left exposed to everything 24/7.for over ten years. They are remarkable.  They are so well made it is amazing.  Every now and then I touch them up, it's not troublesome.  The chairs on the right are the new ones.  The plan is to leave them in natural state. All of our guests really enjoy the chairs, they are really great!."

~Stan and Gloria Garnett, Pass-A-Grille, Florida

"Hey Markus, my wife and I spent the day on St. Pete Beach the other day and we sat on your chairs at the Paradise Grille. Then on the way home we drove by your shop. Anyway I got on your website to just check out your work and I was blown away. I just wanted to let you know that I think you are the Jimi Hendrix of outdoor furniture. I build chairs mainly as a hobby.  I just wanted to say WOW, you the man!
~Tim Davis

Markus, thank you so much for our wonderful Island Time Adirondack chairs and footstool.  They are a very nice match for our lanai, lanterns, and stoves!


-Bill Ball and Cathy Taulbee

We’re amazed how well our Island Time chairs have lasted and aged.  We bought these chairs over ten years ago and they still look like new.  Bill re-stains the chairs every few years and that’s all there is to it!  Thanks Markus for the quality product!

"This chair is a great equalizer in the fight against the attitude changes resulting from changes in latitudes - sitting in it on a cold, snowy February nite, enjoying a Frozen Margarita really reminds one of that one particular harbour somewhere.."

~Aape Pohjavirta, Finland




"We enjoy greatly our genuine Floridian chairs at our lakeside summerhouse in Lohja, Finland. The chairs are comfortable, durable and they look fantastic in the long days and light nights of Finland's summer."


Mika Halttunen, Finland




“I just love my mermaid chair!  It is a piece of art that I will treasure forever.  As a songwriter, I sit in my custom-made chair and channel beach images to incorporate into my songs.  The extra wide arms are perfect for jotting down lyrics in my notebook.  I especially love the sexy, goddess mermaid who reminds me to stay in touch with my goddess writer within!  Markus is a true artisan and a real pleasure to work with.”




PS: I am flattered that you named this version for me!!


zillig2 Hey Markus,  We really love our new adirondacks -- they are perfect for the campfire and so very comfortable too! The craftmanship is excellent and we have gotten so many compliments on them already! Thanks again for the beautiful chairs!
Sincerely, The Zilligs

Markus, Thank you again for the beautiful "Lizards" Adirondack Chairs!  They fit in beautifully in our beach house in the Bahamas.  I'm glad we went with thicker wood, the Bahamas wind can't budge them from our deck area.  Considering we have large lizards all around our property, the Lizards design immediately gives personality to the chairs and makes them a lot of fun!  Thanks again, we'll be back for some additional chairs in the future!

~ Doug Zerbe, Bahamas

"I always wanted a director's chair...and Markus designed this one from scratch. We needed to upgrade our lobby seating, and this was perfect....the chair and bench are not only comfortable, they're beautiful and sturdy enough to handle the theatre traffic. We'll be getting more soon!"

~ Mike France, Owner

Beach Theatre, St. Pete Beach, FL






"I surprised Mike with these chairs for his birthday and he was THRILLED!  We'd been wanting comfortable weather-hardy chairs we could leave out on the dock for our evening wine and sunsets.  Markus worked with me to custom design the perfect pair - a colorful set of "His and Hers" flip flops and surfboards.  They are so cool that boaters keep slowing down as they pass by for a closer look!".  Thank you, Markus!"
Janice Berner, Tierra Verde, Florida

snowchair"Markus, I just had to send you a photo of our Island Time chair here in snowy Idaho.  We have kept the chair outside all year long, year after year and it is amazing how well it has endured the subfreezing conditions".  The chair truly is a work of art!

~Tim Fitzgibbon 




"Markus worked with us to customize what we wanted into these chairs and the final product was better than expected.  These chairs were our first furniture pieces we've purchaced since moving off our boat onto dry land, and it has made this tough move a little easier.  We spend most of the time eating meals on our deck sitting in these captains' chairs overlooking the water.  They are one of a kind pieces of art and comfortable to boot."

~ Rob and Emily Tutton, Tierra Verde, Florida

"Boy, am I glad that I purchased the chairs, ottoman, and rocker.  Last weekend, I had two parties out by my pool, and everyone just raved about my new furniture.  As soon as one just would get out of a chair, another would jump right in.  What a difference!"
