The Acapulco chair is nowadays present in most homes. However, its origins are still a mystery. The Acapulco chair fits perfectly with all styles of interior and exterior decoration. It can be retro, glamorous, airy, graphic and poetic. A little look back at the history of this chair!
The history of the Acapulco chair
The Acapulco chair takes its name from the Mexican seaside resort that attracted many movie stars in the 1950s and 1970s. This chair is one of the few pieces of furniture to become famous, without anyone knowing who designed it or the origins of its creation. What is certain is that it appeared in the 1950s. In 2008, Acapulco made its big comeback in Europe, almost 60 years after its creation. This return was justified by the rediscovery of this Mexican armchair with a solar design, following the Cajas en Transito exhibition, the aim of which was to present Mexican furniture in European countries.
A special design
The Acapulco chair is made of solid galvanised steel on which a seat is formed with ropes made of quality PVC. These have been subjected to an anti-UV treatment. As a result, the chair is specially designed to withstand long hours of exposure to the sun without suffering from it. The design of the chair imitates the effect of circular movement, making it light and soft. The Acapulco is available in many shapes. There’s even a reissue of the chair with leather, ideal for the interior. This version of the leather chair is even better suited to more classic settings.
A touch of pep in all decorations
Acapulco is available in a wide range of colours to suit all styles of decoration, both indoors and outdoors. The Acapulco chair can be placed in many rooms of the house. It will give a touch of vintage to any room in your home. Indeed, it is a passe-partout chair. It will look great in a bedroom, on the balcony, on the terrace or in a corner of the living room. The chair can also be used in winter, to bring colour to a snowy exterior. You can warm it up by partially dressing it with a plaid or fur.
