Back in its heyday in the 1950s, Acapulco was (they tell me) a slice of heaven on earth. Hollywood stars, starlets, millionaires and royals from around the world flocked to this Pacific Beach resort and partied like only Mexico can. And after the music was over and the body too tired to go on, they went back to their yachts, villas or luxe hotels and plopped down to rest before the next soirée … and many did so on the fabulous Acapulco Chair.
While these chairs are still made as they were in the 50s with flexible and colorful vinyl cord wrapped around a metal frame and popular for mostly outdoors, it took Jamey and Constance Garza, a talented Texan couple, to re-imagine them for our retro and contemporary cool living ways of the 21 century. The über-stylish chairs come in 3 versions: round (shown above), oval and square and are all hand made of ¼ in. saddle leather over iron bases which can be powder coated in many colors.
