It’s very comfortable and is exactly the piece you need on your back patio or deck, front porch, or out by the pool! Maybe in your sunroom or out on your lanai? It would be the perfect place to sit with your sweetie and enjoy your favorite cocktail or cup of hot chocolate out by the fire pit. What better way to spend a beautiful evening than sitting outdoors, watching the sun set on a comfortable, stylish settee?
The Kantan Collection was originally designed for Brown Jordan in the 1950s by Tadao Inouye and was chosen by the Department of Commerce to be a part of the U.S. exhibit at the 1959 Industrial World’s Fair in Tokyo. “Kantan also won an award from Alcoa, because aluminum back then was brand-new for outdoor,” Elton describes. “Leaf through old LIFE magazines and Saturday Evening Posts, and you’ll see shots of it with the Kennedys, Bob Hope and William Holden. It’s truly a classic.”-Fairfield
