Last fall I stumbled across these two beautiful chairs second hand. It felt almost criminal to only pay 25.00 each! Then as I lifted the first chair and carried it to the truck "pixie dust" started to fall to the ground. The foam was shot! I mean completely broken down...powder. Daylan was following behind me with the second chair and had a very sceptical look for me as more foam slipped through a seam. My grin only deepened. I was not shaken. No siree. These chairs were great! The frame is teak, and I have (after much deliberation) recovered in a wool/felt fabric. This should be strong enough for the kids to climb on and dark enough that it will hide dirty little foot prints. These are my chairs!
