Planters chairs were also known as verandah chairs as these chairs most often graced the verandah or the front porch. They were introduced by the british and may have originated in South India. They were called planters chairs or plantation chairs because they were popularized by the british as seating in the open gardens and verandahs of plantation bungalows in the hill country. Later on, they became a prominent part of our culture as well and were traditionally reserved for the patriarch of the house. The seats of these chairs are weaved out of rattan.
For extra comfort a slip cover light feathery cushion can be inserted to the head of the chair.
