Hello again to all you lawn chair aficionados!
Some of you will notice this blog – sort of – kinda – went – you know – away! We live in the digital age and thus we have digital isues which thankfully only occur on rare occations like Mondays. But, I’m very happy to report the difficulties have been repaired and we’re back to talking about my favorite topic which is metal lawn chairs!
Like you, I have so many fond memories of just sitting in the old metal chairs and listening to the grown folks discuss their important matters of the day. My Grandmother shelling peas hoping for just the breath of a breeze to take off the heat of the afternoon. And after Church, we’d all sit outside in the chairs and everyone would enumerate all the things they were “fix’n” to go do for the afternoon with no particular hurry being evident.
When I decided to venture off on my own and make our version of these wonderful old chairs, I did it with these thoughts still fresh in my mind but many years old. Then as now, I am committed to all our chairs and gliders having the same feel, proportions, strength and value as those from “back in the day”. We feel like we owe this to these simple products that have touched so many hearts over these many years.
I have studied the history of these chairs and gliders for years now and visited with some of the old manufactures and those that were there. If you share the same sort of interest in these way cool stamped metal chairs as I do then I invite you to come sit a bit and tell us your story or ask a question. I love talking about lawn chairs and gliders!
