George Nelson Coconut Chair

The George Nelson Coconut Chair, also called the coconut lounge chair is one of the most iconic and innovative pieces of furniture in history. The coconut chair is made from a cast aluminum frame with a molded foam seat and back upholstered in leather or fabric. The chair's name comes from the fact that its shape resembles a coconut cut in half, with a round base and a rounded back. It was originally designed for use in hotels and restaurants but has since found its way into homes all over the world thanks to its comfort and elegance. In the years since its initial release, the chair has been re-released several times by both Herman Miller and other companies, with slight variations in construction materials used. In addition to its classic form, it has also inspired many different pieces based on that shape and structure, such as rocking chairs and lounge chairs. The original color of the chair was a light brown, but it has been produced in many different colors over the years. The most common colors are black, white, and red. From its looks, one can tell that it is durable and it’s worth every dollar you would splash on it. There are so many replicas available today.
