Gallant & Jones Acapulco Chair

An Authentic Acapulco Chair, Now Available North of the Border

As one of the enduring icons of Summer, the Acapulco chair has been a mainstay in its namesake warm clime since the 1950s. Traditionally made with an open weave, it's the most stylish way to stay cool when temperatures are high and sitting (as opposed to swimming) is required. This week, thanks to a partnership between north-of-the-border furniture company Gallant & Jones and south-of-the-border design shop Leon Leon, an authentic version of the classic is now available online.

Not much about the design has changed since the 1950s. Why mess with perfection? But Leon Leon has created a fantastic range of color combinations as well as versions in both leather and handwoven cord.

With prices starting at $290, the chairs aren't exactly an impulse buy, but because each one is made by hand in Leon Leon's Mexico City workshop, you are investing in a high-quality piece that will last you many Summers to come. Once you decide on a color, the only question left will be: cerveza or margarita?

I like the stripe of color on these chairs a lot! Does Gallant offer more "Acapulco" style furniture? I saw this set over here, it includes an "Acapulco" chat table to accompany the chair that's pretty stylish! http://www.patioproductions.com/blog/news/acapulco-chair-new-exclusive/
