Papasan chairs have been around for a very long time. In Asian countries, they have been used for several centuries but in the United States and other western countries, papasan chairs only became popular during the 1960s. These one-of-a-kind chairs go by several names, such as bowl chairs, moon chairs, or satellite chairs. If you have ever seen a papasan chair, it would be obvious why they have been given such monikers. The chair is made of a large and perfectly round seat made of rattan that sits atop a base that is likewise made of rattan.
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.
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.
At first look, you may be wondering what's so great about the papasan chair. Furthermore, you may be thinking what makes it so perfect for a bachelor pad. If you had been a child in the seventies or even the early eighties, it's very likely that you have fond memories of the papasan chair that your parents had in their home at the time.
