Indonesian Campeche Chair
Referred to by Thomas Jefferson as his “Campeachy” or “Siesta” chair, this unique piece is redolent of the strange and interwoven history of the New World. The design is a Central American take on an originally Iberian premise–but it was North American pioneers and settlers’ love for this chair as an afternoon respite which catapulted it to its current lofty status amongst campaign furniture. This early 20th-Century campeche chair is the Indonesian variety, furthering that sense of cultural interplay. There’s a reason this design is beloved around the globe–– its immutable elegance.
