Landscape architect, John Chipman Sr., loved the great outdoors and was passionate about
design. Fifty years ago he brought these passions together and founded Landscape Forms,
a company with a purpose to create beautifully designed furniture for outdoor spaces. John and his
landscape architect friends were the first product designers and his landscaping construction workers
the first craftsmen. It was a company founded on design and people, and that legacy continues today.
