As with its sister collection, Sutton Woven, the SUTTON SLING collection was inspired by the same Danish teak & cane chair introduced in 1953. However, the Sutton Sling collection re-interprets the look and feel of this indoor chair with a slightly different approach. Like its sister collection, aluminum frames are used instead of wood, but outdoor performance fabric replaces the natural cane seat & back. A double tapered back leg flares out, meeting the arm right at the sweep of the curve, which then joins the double tapered front leg, ultimately hitting the floor at a 90 degree angle to create a very curvy and prominent stance. Synthetic performance materials take this beautiful classic design, once relegated to the indoors, into the “real” (outdoor) world.
