Folding deckchair became famous and popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A time who rime with excellence refinement and beauty. We have seen pictures or we have watched movies and it seems that during this era people used to wear nice clothes and they were not going out without the proper dresses and suits. It was really common for women to wear beautiful hats and toilettes and men to were different hats.
Sophisticated people used to like also nice material, such as wood, canvas, an authentic material with a spirit. Deckchair were matching the criteria of the time, refinement, elegance. This was well understood by the ocean liners compagnies who wanted a light, chair that could be folded in order to take less space and meet the criteria cited above.
