Fit for Modern-Day Royalty

Dome+Hero.jpg

Let's face it--sometimes we all need to feel like royalty (even for just a day) and that especially holds true when it comes to hosting an event. Seating is one way to make a statement, and our Dome Chairs are the ideal pieces to accentuate the host or the lucky guest that snags this seat.

Our Dome chairs are upholstered in a natural burlap fabric with nail head trim--the perfect balance of organic textures and tailored details, which is a wonderful complement to any of Hawaii's indoor or outdoor events. 

So other than being a pretty cool looking chair, what's the deal behind this piece? The Dome Chair has it's roots in 18th century France (...imagine Marie Antoinette and the Palace of Versailles). During this period, you'd find porters stationed at the gate of grand estates and chateaus to admit visitors, while keeping out the uninvited. Well, standing guard may have been an important job, but it was tiring on the feet and could get pretty chilly while exposed to the elements. So, the balloon-shaped structure of the Dome Chair served to block out the cold draft--yup, beautifully designed and functional too!

As designers look to the past to reinterpret these classic pieces, these chairs are becoming more prominent in today's modern day lifestyle. We've even spotted a few celebs and reality stars posing in this fashionable and iconic chair!
