Iconic Pieces: Acapulco Chair


Popping up in spaces from eclectic to ultra mod, both indoors and out, the Acapulco chair is certainly one of my favorite iconic pieces! Originally designed in Mexico in the 1950s, the chair was inspired by ancient Mayan weaving techniques. When the city became a fashionable tropical destination for the Hollywood jetset in the 1960s, the chairs became an instant favorite! For me, they evoke a beachy, retro, and glamourous moment of the past {so Mad Men!} but still feel so fresh today. I am dreaming of a pair in teal blue for my balcony . . . 
Would you use these modern classics in your home or garden? 











 



For those in Singapore, Acapulco inspired chairs are available in a ton of lovely colors here at the great vintage shop Like That One and CB2 also carries a few great designs with a modern spin.

For those of you in the US, Innit Designs sells them as well!

these chairs are great to look at... almost got them for my deck, but after trying them out they just don't have the comfort factor
