Chairs are an essential part of our lives. They are the stars among furniture. Without chairs, the world would be a horrible place. People would be just standing around like idiots and professional wrestling would be very boring. The very thought of a chairless world makes my skin crawl. I love all kinds of chairs whether it’s a rocking chair on the porch, a cushy armchair, a recliner, a dining chair, a massage chair, an office chair, I love having a piece of furniture where I can lay down my tush and rest my legs. Even with the endless choice of different chairs available today, we all have favourites, and for me it’s the latest addition to my chair collection – the Acapulco replica chair.
Those of you who have visited Mexico have probably already seen this famous piece of furniture in its natural habitat, but even if you haven’t visited the country, the Acapulco replica chair is a great way to add a little Acapulco vibe to your surroundings, be it your home, office, restaurant, or bar.
You probably noticed that I said “replica chairs” and you are wondering why. Well, you can find both original and replica Acapulco chairs in Australia, but here is the deal.
If you are obsessed with authenticity and have both time and money to spare and find an original Acapulco chair, sure, go right ahead. However if you are not planning to recreate a historical event from Mexico or showcase the chair in a museum, I really can’t come up with a logical reason why you should go through all the trouble and waste a ton of time and money on finding an original. Let’s look at the facts. An original Acapulco chair limits your options. You can forget about using it outdoors because the materials that it is made off are not weather resistant. The original sure looks great, but no more that the replicas. If your home is full of original pieces, you might want to continue with this tradition, otherwise, I really see no point in wasting money and effort.
Unlike originals, you can easily find a wide variety of Acapulco replica chairs online for an affordable price and have it delivered at your doorstep in no time. Replicas are far more durable than the fragile original ones, especially when used outdoors. Replicas are made with the latest technology and they are coated with a rust proof material, making them resistant to the elements. Basically you get the same aesthetic appeal, comfort, and functionality with much greater longevity. The only reason why the original chairs are so expensive is because they are hard to find and there is nothing more to it.
