    Sitting in an ‘Acapulco Chair’ with a Pino Colada and listening to the song by Elvis Presley:
    ‘You can’t say no, in Acapulco
    With every beat your heart will answer yes
    Where lovers sing instead of talk
    And dance instead of walk together
    In a night, that’s filled with stars
    And strumming guitars’ Thank you Elvis
    Love your work Lucy

    My Nanna passed away recently and I miss her terribly. I was chatting with my Partner last Sunday about the memory I love most about my Nanna and it is this. Sitting in one of her beloved 1950’s Scoop Mexican Chairs, on their veranda in Qld, chatting about school and ballet and sucking on lemonade Popsicles together. So we decided that as soon as we move into our first home in November, the first thing we will do, is get is one of Nanna’s and my favourite chairs to have pride of place on our patio. This way, any time I miss her, I can sit with her and remember my favourite memory of her.

  • lucy 6 years ago

    i see there are already at least 500 other equally deserving design=lovers out there, and I don’t fancy my chances, HOWEVER… what a truely fabulous chair.
    And so now begins… an ode to chairs.
    I love chairs. I buy chairs when I already have chairs and have no more room. I buy chairs when I need other furniture instead. Come to think of it, I buy chairs when I should buy food. Money has been a little bit of an object – being that I have none. The chair buying is mostly in my head and heart. But I do occasionally give in the my love, and use my last remaining dollaroos and purchase something wunnerful!
    Recently, and very reluctantly I gave up my credit card. This chair and all other chairs will likely not be coming home with me, anymore.
    But I must say, it is a lovely one. And of the most beautiful design. Thank you, Lucy for sharing such a beauty! xx
