The folding chair has always been considered one of the most important pieces of furniture you take along on a camping trip. But have you ever considered it a prized status symbol? In ancient times, folding stools were used not merely for sitting, but also for ceremonial rites and as thrones of power.
The original folding stool is believed to have been developed in Egypt around 2000 BC as a portable chair for the commanding officer in the army. Later, as seen in King Tutankhamen’s throne—a folding stool with a backrest—the folding chair was the symbol of worthy divinity. Its long history as a symbol of authority and nobility can be traced through many civilized cultures.
King of the Campground
Even now, it can be said that he who sits in the coolest folding chair holds others in awe. Superiority is a good thing, especially when you can order it and have it delivered to your door. Take for instance the new Big Wide Recliner that Camping World just added to the outdoor camping furniture line. While similar in design to the typical web-laced aluminum-framed folding lounge chairs of old, this work of industrial art is dripping with superior design elements that elevate this chair far above its so-called equals.
Consider the extra width, the opulent upholstery or infinite-adjustability of the new Big Wide Recliner. How could it be considered anything less than superior?
After reviewing hundreds of chairs from manufacturers all over the globe, we believe this chair is one of the best available at this price, We have proudly positioned it as the flagship model of Camping World. The result is proving to be quite popular amongst President’s Club owners lucky enough to plant themselves in this decadent luxury model.
Why Settle for Less?
Folding chairs and lounges have always been an afterthought when it comes to camping. The result has had us strapped, quite literally, with chairs consisting of lightweight aluminum tube frames supporting a basketweave of colorful plastic webbing or perhaps even some polyester or canvas fabric.
But we’re looking beyond “acceptable” comfort and looking for a real piece of opulent furniture that elevates us above the typical camper.
After all, you aren’t camping in a tent anymore are you? No you’re into a more luxurious style of camping … one that includes entertainment centers and built-in climate control. Let those that scoff at such comforts get by with their Army surplus pup tent and flimsy camp chairs. You deserve more, and the chairs listed here rate as the “more” that elevates “getting by” to “getting what you deserve.”
