Today I became ever more aware of restaurants bringing their tables outside, heavy winter coats shed in favour of shirtsleeves and being dazzled by a gorgeous creature who wafted by in a cloud of peach tulle and ballet slippers; all signalling the arrival of spring and the promise of a week of rising temperatures. The image of this carved wood and rattan folding chair has been sitting on my desktop for the best part of a year, reminding me of exactly this type of weather, that makes you want to drag your chair outside, put your feet up and laze the afternoon away. Convenient and handy when you need them, folding chairs are usually brought out when company comes round, and always remind me of gatherings; braais in the backyard, a day by the beach, parties, and festivals. A tad bit stylish than the average foldaway chair this folding chair from Bamboula, a US-based business, was handmade by Ghanaian artisans and features decorative carved detailing along the sides.
