A Chair Totally Fit for Purpose!

28Project House and Garden

Came across an image of the above chair when browsing the book ‘Cuban Elegance‘ by Michael Connors and thought what a totally  brilliant chair! Made out of mahogany and cane it’s obviously highly stylish, but looking closer it’s also very, very practical indeed.  Firstly the cane seat ensures that the user of the chair is ventilated  in the hot Caribbean climate. Secondly, if  the sitter  falls asleep there are headsupports to lean his/her heading against.  Thirdly the wide armrests look very comfortable, but are also wide enough to act as a support for that afternoon drink keeping it within easy reach (very important!:-)) . This chair gets 10 out of 10 points!
