Do you know Grace & Frankie by Netflix? I saw a beautiful chair in the beach house on “Grace & Frankie” and fell in love. I found out it is Jo-Liza’s Tiara Side Chair from the Rope Lace Collection. While searching for the Rope Lace Collection I stumbled upon the Hanging Egg Swing and guess what, I wanted this chair so badly that I decided to buy one and I could not be happier.
SWING INTO NOSTALGIA
This beautiful egg shaped swing chair is one of the handmade products in the Rope Lace Collection by Jo Liza. It is made of intricately designed wrought iron and handwoven with seagrass. Its intricate, swirling pattern is reminiscent of leaves, vines, and large oval flowers, providing a natural, outdoorsy pop of life to any indoor environment. The seagrass that makes up the seat itself is comfortable enough to spend hours curled up inside of, but adding a cushion of your own can take this seat from reasonably comfortable to downright luxurious.
TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY?
This delicate seagrass egg swing’s primary asset is its appearance. Whereas other egg swings can come across as clunky eyesores, this one is light and airy— it adds a touch of whimsy to the room and does not overwhelm any of the other furniture or decorations in the general vicinity.
The swing is also incredibly easy to assemble. Though the basket can be suspended from a ceiling, the fact that the metal stand is included is another plus; whether you plan to use your brand new egg swing indoors or outdoors, you have everything you will need in order to set up this product upon purchase.
Though this product is sturdy enough to withstand normal indoor use, it may not be recommended for households with young children or rambunctious pets. Though seagrass is a pet-safe material, it is not necessarily pet-resistant– dogs and cats can pull apart the fibers that make up the swing itself if they use it too roughly. This material is also difficult to clean, which means that it may not be spill-resistant. Another con is the lack of a seat cushion, but this is easily rectified by adding one of your choice.
FEW WORDS FROM DESIGNER
“This beautiful egg swing chair is one of the handmade products in our Rope Lace Collection. It is made of intricately designed wrought iron and handwoven with seagrass.
Growing up in the furniture industry, I have been inspired at a young age by my mother, who was a great influence in introducing amazing finds and treasures from all over the world. She was known as “Asia’s Queen of Antiques” during her time. Working for her when I was in college, and allowing me to create and design my own ideas to sell to international buyers during our trade shows abroad and in our retail stores back in the Philippines, I was able to learn what things were marketable and what people wanted.
I was lucky that when I started my business in Los Angeles in 1992, I was able to create products that people needed and loved. I love fashion and I get most of my inspiration from my travels here and abroad. I study fashion trends. Furniture trends usually follow fashion trends. I love when people think my products are unique and pretty but functional at the same time. I want each of my product to “make the whole room look nice”. It becomes a sculpture and the focal point wherever you put it. It can definitely stand by itself in an empty space. It can be mixed with different styles as well and still be able to stand out nicely…”
