>> acapulco chair

I think I first laid eyes on an Acapulco chair ($350+) earlier this year when I was writing a story about a Los Feliz couple who had white ones in their back yard. The chair, which is based on Mayan hammock weaving technology, was designed in the 1950s and has been a huge hit in Mexico. They're great for outdoor space but could work indoors as well. Another good online resource is Greenpoint Works in Brooklyn.

You should check out Oficina Kreativa's website - they were the original founders of The Acapulco Chair design in Europe!

And they deliver in/to Europe aswell.
