Paris Park Chairs at the Luxembourg Gardens

When one thinks of a relaxing chair, you usually think of comfort and coziness, the huge recliner at Grandma’s house, yet that is not the case with the Paris Park Chairs. Mais Non! These chairs are the epitome of structural design and require some extra padding for lengthy sessions, however they are one of the things that truly makes me know that I am in the City of Lights.

They are conveniently sprinkled throughout the parks and gardens, like green jimmies on a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. All this love for an outdoor metal chair? You bet! I have used mine as a mini picnic table, footrest, and even had impromptu gossip sessions with a few friends. They are the best for reading, writing and sketching. Some of them are reclining but most are straight up! They can easily be moved to the sunniest spot in the park. These chairs are a reminder to all of us that just taking a seat, relaxing and watching the world go by is good for the soul. So the next time you are in Paris, go ahead and grab one and just sit back!!!!!!!

Tip: The Paris Park Chairs burst on the scene in 1954.
