Thunderbird Chairs

I absolutely love the Thunderbird Chair. The Colors are beautiful and the lumbar support makes for comfortable setting for long periods of time. I have the aqua. I plan to get the seafoam some day to go with it.

Old Chairs

We had been looking for some old original metal chairs for our porch over looking the Inter Coastal waterway. We were not finding many and the ones that we found were very rusty and hard to ship. We found your web site and wonderful chairs and ordered two. They were fairly easy to assemble and look great.

Thanks again :Jim

Just like I remember!

Two chairs were purchased for our daughter and son in law. They arrived quickly and were easy to assemble. I know they will enjoy them for a long time. Thank you.

Such wonderful memories!

I have wanted metal chairs for quite a while but had always looked at older chairs with years of wear and paint. I knew I would have to have them sandblasted, painted, etc. When I found your chairs online I was kind of skeptical, nothing is as good as you remember it. But these are! I love the feel of them, the finish is beautiful and the colors are so vivid! I can almost see my grandparents sitting in my chairs as they used to sit in theirs so many years ago!!!!

Wonderful Products

I am a huge fan of these chairs. I found this company while looking for a replacement frame for a metal chair I already owned. I bought a frame and this style chair. I love it so much, that I bought two more shortly afterward. I get compliments on them all the time and will most likely be buying more soon! Thanks again!

Just wanted to say thank you for the prompt delivery and excellent product. First time I have ever ordered anything that needed to be assembled and had more than enough screws, nuts and washers. I will definitely be ordering more and recommending you to friends and family. Thank You

Just like my parents had!

We inherited a couple of metal chairs (circa 1950's) from my parents. After one broke, we wanted something similar because they were so comfortable. I was surprised that I was able to find the Thunderbird metal chairs online. We purchased two chairs and are extremely pleased with them.

So Happy with my new Retro Furniture!!!

We recently purchased two of these Thunderbird Metal Lawn Chairs, and were so happy with them that we already ordered and received two more of the chairs and a Retro Metal Patio Table! We love them sooooo much! I was originally looking to buy some of the Bellaire style like I remember my Grandparents having, but I saw and fell in love with these. I will be recommending them to everyone I know, they are comfy, sturdy and so cool!

Everything old is new again.

I just received my metal lawn chair and I love it. I ordered one to make sure that I liked it, and after I got it home I decided to order one more so I would have a pair.

The chair is sturdy and bouncy just like I remember the old ones were. Hardest thing for me was picking out the color. I went with the sea foam green to match my house trim.

Nicely Made

I bought one of these chairs for a friend that has three original Thunderbird chairs and has mentioned several times he would like to find another one. The ones he has were given to him by his parents. We decided a fourth chair would be a great birthday gift!
