Sold exclusively though Sears, Roebuck and Company about 1955. Designed by the late Ed Warmack of Fort Smith, Arkansas this is one of only a very few designs that were private labeled and marketed exclusively through only one company. Not the most recognized of vintage metal lawn chairs it is surely one of the more original. The design of the back is complex but so very comfortable with a curved back forming shape which also includes lumbar support.

Torrans Manufacturing Co. LLC proudly reintroduces this Atomic Era classic which has not been seen for over 55 years! Made to the same heavy duty specifications as the original but now with stainless steel fasteners and modern day UV resistant high gloss powder coat! Matching double glider available.

Heavy duty glider

I like the chair so much I decided to try glider. I am sure I will get the same satisfaction from it as well. The chairs are very strong and comfortable.

Very Cool but Missing Parts

This retro glider looks very cool in our back yard, tucked under the grape arbor. Reminds us of childhood experiences when our feet couldn't reach the ground. Quality of the chair is good but was missing two fasteners and two end caps. Luckily, we bought two other Retro Metal chairs that had extra fasteners! Found the end caps at our local hardware store.

Beautiful but hard to put together

Bought one glider and one chair. Put the chair together and it is beautiful. We are a little over halfway putting the glider together but cannot get the back metal straps on that hold the chair part to the frame.. Did anyone else have this problem and, if so, how did you solve it? My husband says he will have to drill holes that will match up with the straps, as if we get one strap on, the other strap hole is about 3 inches off and no amount of pulling on the chairs will match it up.
