One of the more popular materials used in papasan chairs nowadays is steel, most likely because of its very modern look. Steel chairs can also last longer than those that are made of rattan, which can rot over the years if exposed to the elements or not taken of properly. However, steel chairs are not as lightweight as the original rattan version, and they are considerably more expensive as well.
Today, however, we often see used papasan chairs being sold at ridiculously low prices in online auctions, or even thrown out into the alleys, free for anyone who may take a fancy to it. There are still several stores that sell the traditional chairs that are imported from Asian countries like the Philippines, but even these stores say that sales have dropped considerably over the years.
Traditionally, papasan chairs are handcrafted from rattan or wicker - most of them are still actually created in this manner, particularly those that are imported from Asian Countries like the Philippines and Indonesia. However, for customers who have a more modern preference in terms of furniture design, there are also newer designs of papasan chairs that are made of lightweight steel or even plastic.
Papasan chairs are also sometimes called bowl chairs or moon chairs. The basic variety is a perfectly round chair that is meant to seat a single person, but there are also versions of the chair that are designed for two people, like a loveseat. These double papasan's are known as mamasan chairs.
