The Deck Chair offers amazing comfort and spares no expense with durability. You will notice the seat is slightly pitched forward. Inherently in sling chairs, as you sit down you tend to sink in, which creates lots of pressure on the back of your thighs. This design allows you to sit upright with little or no pressure on the back of your legs. The seat is a comfortable 18 inches high and it folds up flat for easy storage and transport. There are too many uses for this chair to even begin to list them. The Deck Chair is made with a combination of Ash Hardwood, stainless steel hardware and Danish Oil finish and is built to last.
