These lovely metal lawn chairs take most of us back to our grandmothers’ backyard, or a family’s lake house or at a motel you might have stopped for a night or two- hence their most common name- The MOTEL CHAIR. . Each of us can remember a chair in a favorite color. These chairs are a uniquely American piece of furniture that began in the late 1930’s and continued into the 90’s and are now making a comeback in popular culture.
This particular photo was taken at the Abita Museum and these chairs welcome anyone to just take a seat and reminisce days gone by.
