Palm Harbor-based Kush ease LLC has signed a license deal to put images by Florida conservation artist Guy Harvey on its custom-order bean bag marine canvas chairs. Perhaps best known for his fishing artwork that sold more than 50,000 T-shirts at Beall's department stores last year, Harvey's designs will be embroidered on chairs sold through boat shows, marine and patio furniture stores, and online at kushease.com. The company was launched in 2007 by landscape designer Robin Harcourt Harris, who was unable to find an all-weather outdoor bean chair for client and former All Children's Hospital nurse Karin Hartenbach. So they designed their own and went into business, selling them at $70 to $500.
