The Acapulco chair originates from Mexico, and is a handcrafted cult product, which has achieved worldwide fame.
The Acapulco chair has a glamorous story
After the Cuban revolution Acapulco, on the Mexican pacific coast, became the holiday resort for the rich and famous. Between 1960 and 1980 it was a hotspot for jetsetters and celebrities. Liz Taylor got married here, Jackie and John Kennedy spent their honey moon in Acapulco and Frank Sinatra spent a lot of time here. In the midst of this golden age the story of the Acapulco chairs begins: legend has it that a French tourist wanted his chair to have the comfort of a hammock. This idea was a starting point for many contemporary designers: under the name Acapulco chair this new kind of chair got nationally famous and loved.
And because many celebrities acquired a liking for the chair, it became an icon of mid century Mexican style.
The Acapulco chair convinces both for outdoor and indoor use
Even today this comfortable chair is considered to be a true design icon, still adhered to the nostalgic glamour of the 1950s and 1960s. The simple and elegant design is now more up to date than ever.
Even though the chair originally was used as an outdoor piece, it more and more finds its way to indoor spaces. No matter where it is placed: in the garden, on the balcony, by the pool, or as a cosy lounge chair to relax in at home – as a modern, laid back furniture piece with sculptural character, the Acapulco chair convinces through its comfort everywhere.
