Some say that the papasan chair has become tacky over the years, especially when compared to the more modern furniture that had been introduced as of late. But with the right choices of fabric and a great eye for interior design, you can definitely use them to brighten up a room and actually make a space look more modern than it ever was before.
If you are one of the millions of people who has owned a papasan chair for years and is now trying to decide whether to sell it at an online auction, donate it to charity or simply throw it away, you might want to stop for a minute and reconsider your options. Although there are people who are convinced that the days of the papasan chair are long over, there are also those who believe that they can still be used as a major feature in modern interior design.
When buying a brand-new papasan chair, one of the most important factors that you should consider is the quality of the craftsmanship. Papasan chairs are made by hand and most of them are imported from South East Asia where native workers expertly create these works of art. These chairs go through an intensive quality check procedure and you can be certain of their excellence and durability.
Sitting on a chair made of nothing but hard rattan is not comfortable at all, which is why a papasan chair is never complete with the trademark round cushion that sits on top of the bowl frame. Unlike the frame of the chair, papasan cushions are more frequently machine manufactured. They are made of different kinds of fabric but the most popular ones are microfiber materials because they do not stain easily and only need to be spot-cleaned in case of stains.
