BELIZE CHAIR - The Belize Chair, also known as the Clam Chair or Cayo Chair, is an extremely comfortable yet highly durable chair. It is both a handcrafted work of art as well as a lasting piece of functional furniture. With its low-lying design, it can still fold flat for easy shipping and storage. The straight-backed design that slips into a slight curve at the seat gently cradles you and welcomes you to stay and relax for a while. The Belize Chair is exceptionally suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Made of the finest mix of beautiful, tropical hardwoods, each chair is unique, attractive, and naturally durable. Some of the tropical hardwood species used to produce these fine chairs include: Honduran Mahogany, Zericote (or Ziricote), Che Chem, Granadillo, Jobillo, Cabbage Bark, Santa Maria, Pau Amarillo, Chakte Kok, and Sapodillo.
