The Eventail white willow chair
The Eventail willow armchair is reminiscent of the famous Emmanuelle armchair with its spectacular back. Less exotic, more Mediterranean (made in Spain), it is above all more comfortable and more stable. It is a real armchair in which you will take pleasure in relaxing, and not just a decorative object: a high backrest which allows you to rest your head, a semi-high seat (42cm) and solid armrests which allow you to get up easily. Despite its unusual dimensions, it weighs only 7 kg. We have equipped it with double-sided glides (one hard side for soft floors, one felt side for smooth floors) and replaceable in case of wear. A matching cushion is available as an option.
Willow, rattan, what's the difference?
Rattan is a tropical plant (85% from Indonesia) related to the palm family that produces a "cane" that is easy to bend (steam). Rattan allows for tighter curves and finer weaves than willow, but being less rigid, it requires a heavier frame.
Willow grows easily throughout Europe. It does not require any plant protection products or fertilisers. The harvest is completely regenerated each year, so it is a very easily renewable resource. Peeled hot ("buff" or "brown" willow with natural copper tones) or cold (white willow), it is most often presented untreated, the willow fibre leaving its smooth and satiny surface "au naturel".
Characteristics and options
Overall dimensions: height 130 x width 103 x length 69 cm, seat at 42 cm. Weight 7 kg. Structure in pine and hazelnut. Nets, arches, braids and ligatures: natural "white" willow (beige tone). Made in Spain. Also available in brown willow.
A wicker chair can be used in a veranda, in a winter garden, or outside in good weather and occasionally, but cannot be considered as garden furniture. It is not made to withstand the elements, humidity, frost, or too long exposure to the sun. The white wicker Eventail armchair is also hand-woven. Dimensional differences of 1 to 2 cm can be observed, no two are exactly the same.
Maintenance: dust with a damp cloth, avoid commercial cleaning products. In case of heavy soiling, clean with a sponge and soap.
