This is one of the most unique, folding, solid wood chairs you will find. Rich with history, this design originated in Belize and through the entreprenuerial efforts of many people, eventually found it's way into the United Stated in the 1970's. We have added our own original design modifications to strengthen and refine this classic. You will be amazed at how comfortable this chair is due to the contour of the seat and back - both conforming to your body's natural shape. Have a seat cushion made for this or a detachable head pillow (available at RoomDoctor. com) and this is just the chair to enjoy that book in on the porch or in the house. Hand made in Pennsylvania from solid, southern yellow pine. Can be finished with a Danish Oil or Tung Oil, an outdoor deck stain or left unfinished to weather naturally to a maritime gray. A smaller version, the Beachcomber, is available, as well as matching Rockers.
