From quality craftsmanship to retro seating, we’d love to see classic furniture ideas coming back in style. Take the Papasan chair, for instance.  Born in the Philippines, this bowl-shaped chair also known as a dish or moon chair, was introduced to the western world in the ‘50s but didn’t get popular until the ‘70s. After experiencing a decade-long stretch of popularity, the cushion-topped seat is coming back in style with those designers hoping to bring a retro vibe to today’s more modern interiors. One of the most comfortable chairs you can find on the market today, Papasans are the proof that old styles never die, they’re just reinvented.

What is a Papasan chair?

A Papasan chair  is a large rounded chair of Asian origin often comprised of a removable seat cushion and a frame made of rattan or wicker. It is available in a multitude of fabrics and finishes and is known for being extremely comfortable.  Over the years the Papasan chair has gone by many names like bowl chair, moon chair, bucket chair, roundabout chair and even just big round chair. However they all refer to the bowl shaped construction of the rattan chair that is the Papasan chair. The design of the Papasans  is rather simple but also versatile and able to adapt to a variety of decors.
