The Acapulco chair was first produced in the 50’s and quickly became popular in Mexico. Legend has it a French tourist was visiting Acapulco and found the solid chairs on the beach too hot to sit in. Inspired by the traditional Mayan hammocks in the area, he designed a chair that reflected the tropical, laid-back style. Comfy, colorful, and architecturally striking . . . don’t you want to incorporate a bit of Acapulco into your casa?

I almost bought some of these when I was furnishing my new place, but I was worried they were a bit too trendy. They look soooo cool in these shoots though.
I do like the chairs and they are very popular here in Mexico. As for the origin, the French tourist in Acapulco may have been inspired by hammocks, but there are no Mayas in the Acapulco area. Acapulco is on the Pacific coast. The Mayan territory is the Yucatan Peninsula and south, through the state of Chiapas and into Guatemala and Belize.
Get it here!
