Mark Lemire, Inventor & Founder

While living in a home next to the Beach, with a third story deck, the inventor of the perch, Mark Lemire, was met with a dilemma.  He lived right next to the beach, yet he had no ocean view!  Suddenly he had a problem to solve… find a way to capture and enjoy the ocean view in comfort and style.  After thinking about it, he realized that his background in engineering and chiropractic would enable him to create a chair that would provide the solution. Creating the ultimate view, while sitting in comfort for extended periods of time was the goal.

After months of sketching and choosing the best materials, it was time to build the first perch.  When it was finally time to carry his first version up to the deck, he realized he was onto something special.   As he climbed up the steps for the first time he had an epiphany, as he looked out, not only did he have a view of the ocean, he had a 360-degree view of the entire city!

For months he we would go up before sunset and sit in comfort and enjoy his new life with a view.  Suddenly his friends were amazed by the unique design and functionality, and wanted a perch for themselves.   As he built more, interest grew and the company was born.  Several iterations later, the designs were honed and multiple models created to seat more than just one person and include extra features like  a fire pit, ice chest deck and more.
