Guatemalan Chair Specifications
First time I set eyes on this funky blue patterned armchair, it was love at first sight, but its definitely a piece that grows on you - loving it more every time I saw it. This really is one awesome piece of designer furniture that is beyond comfy! The very first time I sat in it, I sank into its luxurious feel, and the arms are so big I felt like Captain Kirk travelling at warp speed!
The Material combination blends with Flores brocade with authentic handcrafted Toliman ikat fabric. The Tahul brocade is woven by Maya textile artisans on a backstrap loom, the pattern is hand stitched across the weft as the base fabric is simultaneously woven. By this ancient technique, it takes one month to achieve a narrow panel of the funky intricate fabric. It really is art on a cloth.
The ikat is also produced entirely by oldschool methods, the pattern is bound into the raw yarn, which is then dyed, then set upon a pedal loom to be woven by hand. Do take a look at the Rum Fellow design studio with more furniture designs with this type of retro armchair.
