Quality outdoor furniture specialists, Gloster, have brought the classic woven basket chair right up to date this season with the launch of Havana. Swapping plaited reeds for hand-woven man-made fibres that are both weatherproof and low maintenance, Havana is a modern day take on a timeless design that dates back to Roman times.

Basket weaving is one of the oldest crafts in the world. The classic woven basket or tub chair was hugely popular in Victorian times and is now enjoying a revival as the trend for rustic style in furniture design grows in popularity.

In keeping with the original shape, Gloster's rustic-styled Havana chair has organic curves that mirror the contours of the body to offer supreme comfort. And by teaming it with contemporary teak dining tables with clean design lines and minimalist styling, the contrast in styles makes a strikingly eclectic design statement.

Havana chairs are hand woven from an authentic looking, willow-coloured fibre wrapped around virtually invisible, lightweight aluminium frames.
The finely braided edge detail that wraps around the chair ’s back and down the arms has a distressed finish to the fibre that is soft to the touch and
further enhances the rustic style of the furniture.

The chairs fit neatly with four sizes of dining table seating from four up to eight people in comfort. Havana tables whilst contemporary in profile
are made from solid teak which has been pre-treated to achieve an equally distressed, rustic finish. This finish involves bleaching the colour from the timber and a roughening of the surface to give the table the appearance
of weathered driftwood.

Optional cushions are available for the Havana chair in three colours of outdoor grade fabric - Canvas, Taupe and Charcoal.
