Steamer Chair ...
A classic design that was made so popular on Luxury Steam Liners and Grand Passenger Ships like the Titanic …
The Vintage Steamer Lounger Chair is a lasting legacy from large passenger ship travel that was historically reserved as a luxury for the rich upper crust of society to cross the oceans on pleasure trips.
These large vessels were the forerunners to the Cruise Ships that we know today. With one difference - passage on them was reserved for the top level of society who had the money to enjoy the luxury travel they offered.
And luxury travel requires plenty of relaxation …
To reflect this, the steamer chair was designed for maximum comfort on the public decks of these massive ships.
As a lasting legacy from this era the design still remains popular in many forms today.
Our modern take on the classic design is hand made from the highest grade Burmese Teak complete with solid brass fittings that were so characteristic in the original designs.
The cut handle in the backrest allows you to move it around easily, again, another stand out feature of the original design.
It’s also adjustable in five positions with a removable footrest as well …
It’s perfect for use both indoors and out so will look good outside for sunbathing purposes or in a steam room or even around an indoor pool.
Just like the originals our luxury design will last for years and the wood will age gracefully to the silver-grey patina that is common, and so desirable, in Burmese Teak, especially when it’s harvested from the heart of older trees.
The name is even included in a famous book about the golden age of Steamer Travel – see the thumbnail at the top of this description for details …
It is possible, for purely cosmetic purposes, to restore the aged timber back to the original honey-coloured aspect simply by using mild, soapy water and elbow grease.
We also have a range of Teak Care Products that perform the same function.
Unlike other, misinformed retailers, we do not recommend using Teak Oil.
