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.
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.
So does this mean that overweight people won't be able to enjoy the experience of lounging in a papasan chair? Not necessarily. These days, there are modern versions of the papasan chair that are made with a more durable material than rattan or wicker. Some of the materials that you can choose from are a stronger type of wood and steel. There are even a few papasan chairs today whose frames are made entirely of PVC, and they are said to be able to comfortably seat a person weighing as much as 400 pounds.
Does all this mean that papasan chairs are really just a fad from the seventies or is there still a bright future for them in the world of interior design? The opinion of the general public is quite varied but we can definitely say that these chairs are not going away anytime soon.
