Seattle, Washington, USA
Inspired by the need for quality, stowable furniture on yachts, the Decker folding yacht chair by Furniture Smith is designed for maximum comfort and style while folding up to only four inches thick.
Decker Folding Yacht Chair has recently been awarded a 2022 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Using materials associated with luxury yachts such as stainless steel, brass, and teak creates a seaworthy chair that feels at home in the yachting environment.
Most folding chairs sacrifice comfort, quality, and style for weight and portability.
The Decker folding chair doesn’t sacrifice style for portability while combining unparalleled quality.
The back of the seat frame serves as a handle when folded making the chair highly portable.
Teak slats are secured to straps that run from the front of the seat to the top of the back.
When opened, the unique over-center design provides tension on the straps holding the teak seat and back.
The straps produce a comfortable seat that flexes and gives with the user.
