The poolside vibe of these chairs had me at hello. Originating in Mexico in the 1950s (think Sinatra, Monroe, Kennedy), the hammock-like shape and vibrant mix of colours have turned this retro piece of furniture into a classic.

It doesn’t matter where you put it: lounging by the pool, feet up on the balcony or taking a break in your living room. The Acapulco will convince you you’re feeling a hot, coastal breeze on your skin: sipping a mojito is recommended.
