Lawn Chair

Lawn Chair

Lawn Chair

The lawn chair is fabricated from renewable materials of steel, rubber and felt, and then finished with a layer of sod or ground cover. It is contoured for comfort and fully functional. Before sod, the chaise body weighs 25 lbs. and can be shipped dissembled from its base. When upholstered with sod, it is easily movable by two people. The lawn chair is equipped with a built-in moisturizing system that promotes even distribution of moisture under the sod, thereby minimizing evaporation and run-off. The lawn chair comes in a choice of 3 bases: a concrete footing base, a lightweight double metal base and a caster base for greater ease of mobility.

Thonet Australia

I wasn’t aware of it, but there is an Australian Thonet company Thonet Australia Pty Ltd which I found through Infolink Com Au

Since 1979, Thonet has been bringing a proud tradition of furniture design and innovation to Australia through its distribution of Thonet bentwood chairs, produced in original factories established in 1880 by the Thonet family. Our collection extends to other leading European manufacturers such as Amat-3, Tolix and De Sede. We also carry locally produced tables and soft seating for hospitality, commercial and domestic use.
