A combination of form and function, and an iconic style icon in its own right, an Acapulco chair is a must-own for anyone who likes to keep their home looking chic without sacrificing comfort.
The iconic design of the chair has long been clear, but it isn’t a case of style over substance. During the 1950s, Acapulco became one of the world’s most popular travel destinations for the great and good of Hollywood. Naturally, designers and others seeking inspiration from these trendsetters and their new home away from home flocked to the city, and it was one of these designers who decided that, given the Mexican heat, a normal hardbacked chair simply wouldn’t do.
Taking inspiration from the traditional Mayan hammock, the Acapulco chair replaced the classic wooden structure of the chair and replaced it with an open stringed construction that offered support while being slightly more relaxed and much more breathable.
Today, the Acapulco chair remains a truly striking design. At Mayalma, our Acapulco chairs are the real deal, hand woven and staying true to the chair’s original classic design. We stock chairs in a range of different colours and in full and mini sizes, so no matter who they’re for, we’ve got the design for you!
