“I would do anything for this chair,” “Neeeeed in my studio”, and “I am in awe of this chair,”- these were some of the comments on Parachute’s Instagram feed as soon as they posted pictures of its maiden sling chair. Till now, we were used to Parachute’s furniture collection mostly comprising sofas, side tables, and beds. The Californian homeware company dropped a bombshell just before the weekend introducing its first-ever lounge chair.
Dubbed Leather Sling Chair, the iconic piece is inspired by mid-century Spanish furniture. The makers call the piece ‘understatedly cool,’ and rightly so, courtesy of its simple yet modernized silhouette. Boasting clean lines, the sling chair is the talk of the town for its low-slung and angular frame that is made of solid oak that’s sustainably sourced.
The sling chair is finished in vegetable-tanned leather, which adds even more grace to this signature piece as the leather can be stretched and conformed over time to create the perfect seat. As per the company, the leather has been fitting through slats in the frame. It is then attached by a dowel inserted into the stitching to prevent it from releasing.

Weighing 55 lbs, the chair features a low-slung design and is ideal for sitting back and relaxing, so ergonomics shouldn’t be a debate here. Handcrafted in Vietnam, it is an elegant and classic chair that is a result of high-quality craftsmanship. Costing $1500, the beautiful mid-century-inspired piece can be ordered at the brand’s official website.
