Carl Hansen's Outdoor MG501 Cuba Chair merges comfort with function. It offers a sleek foldable garden chair design ideal for outdoor spaces. The teak frame and waterproof flat rope seat and backrest emphasise Scandinavian design and its robust outdoor functionality.

The Outdoor-Friendly Folding Chair

The Carl Hansen Outdoor MG501 Cuba Chair, reimagined by Morten Gøttler, shines in the world of Scandinavian garden furniture. More than just an outdoor lounge chair, it's a testament to minimalism and functional elegance, perfectly suited for outdoor environments. This design showcases the fusion of simplicity, utility, and robust outdoor adaptability.

Weather Resistant Materials

Set apart from the indoor version of the MG501 Cuba Chair, this version is made in materials suitable for outdoors. Not only this but, each element of the Carl Hansen Outdoor Cuba Chair exemplifies Danish craftsmanship. Gøttler's transition from the shipping industry to furniture design gives his pieces a distinctly robust quality. As a result, this Scandi garden chair boasts a sturdy teak frame, ideal for outdoor conditions, and a waterproof flat rope seat/backrest.

Carl Hansen's Responsibly Crafted Outdoor Furniture

Sustainability remains central to the MG501's outdoor variant. The chair uses responsibly sourced teak and eco-friendly materials, reflecting an ongoing commitment to environmental respect. Also, its ergonomic design gives a surprising level of comfort when compared to other garden folding chairs.

Adaptable for Every Outdoor Setting

The MG501 Cuba Chair's design is exceptionally versatile, seamlessly fitting into various outdoor settings. Whether placed in a garden, on a patio, or in an open-air lounge, it adapts effortlessly. Its folding mechanism enhances practicality, making it easy to store and relocate, meeting diverse outdoor needs.

Is This the Premier Contemporary Outdoor Folding Chair?

In the realm of folding chairs, the MG501 stands out, especially when compared to options like the Narin Folding Chair or the Butterfly Chair. It's distinguished by its unique narrative and Scandinavian design ethos, tailored for outdoor use. While it may be pricier, it represents an enduring investment, poised to enrich outdoor living areas and become a cherished legacy. Discover more in our detailed review of the Outdoor Cuba.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!
