Parklane (Shell Backed) Lawn Chair Set
Our 'Parklane' Set is based on a John Gordon Rideout design manufactured by Calumet Manufacturing & The Junior Toy Company, Hammond, Indiana circa 1938. Originally sold as 'one frame' complete chair unit but post WW2 it would be available as a knocked down ready to assemble in a box (or flatpack as we know it today) This style sold well into the 1950s. This design actually created the term "Shell Backed"
This 'Parklane' version has had a practical adjustment in construction. The arms have been remounted to the widest point of the chair back to allow more sitting room and overall comfort. Sold now on a Heavy Duty Frame it is drop tested with 325lb in weight from six foot and the frame returns to original shape.
A gorgeous and contrasting style and colour palette to our current 'Thunderbird' Chairs, these echo more of a pre-war era, very Art Deco in appearance but also contemporary too and with frames and seats of equal tones they do present the Lawn Chair style very differently.
This set includes two matching Parklane Chairs and a Round Side Table also in matching colours.
Available in Tangerine, Huckleberry, Lemon and Raspberry.
Ships in three units via MyHermes or with Free Local Delivery (make your order up to £500 and we can deliver the first 100 miles and assemble FOC). Any questions about shipping, assembly please contact us in the first instance.
