Why such a difference between the Acapulco Chair price?
In this article, I will gave you a complet benchmarking of the Acapulco Chair offer you can find on the market.
The Acapulco chair legend I explained you may be true, I cant say. But for sure, this dont help you to buy the good one.
what can you expect when you buy a cheap Acapulco Chair ?
|Low Cost Acapulco Chair|
you can find really ship acapulco chair from 30€ but you know what to expect from them : no confort, low durability.
Voga probablyofffer the cheapest acapulco chair on the market. But there is no doubt, all the acapulco chair you can find with the price range 30€ to 80€ are coming from the same place. With all the cheap models that Voga import from China they manage to have competitive transport cost and that why they offer the best price.
Those product are easy to recognize, the plastic rope density is really important, and you can observe a flat part into the lower part of the curve. Sklum are doing exactly the same product and we can even wonder if it's not the producer who made the product photo as the orientation of the product are the same. Interessant thing is that both of them are having a crossed out price.
The advantage of this product is that you will be invited to change your chairs within less than a year. the tube is weak and the fixing system with cheap screw used make it even brittle. The rope is without uv protection so it will be quickly burn by the sun and start to be harsh.
The disadvantage is the small size dont integrate your head within the chair. Your neck will thump the backside of the chair. This confort sensation is not what we can expect from a good quality Acapulco chair with original size and shape.
Second thing regarding the difference between an orginal Acapulco chair is the flexibility of the rope. The raw material use has no elasticity and it's like washing line. The result is the lack of confort on the seating part and also on the back.
Fair price for a Original Acapulco chair!

According to material price and the know how needed to made a high quality Acapulco chair, 300€ is the minimum price you can expect when you want to buy one. You wont see huge discount on it, the most will be a 10% if there is small scratch or if it's sold due to the of color collection ending. There are not many company who are having this kind of level, you can found INNIT in US, BOQA in Europe who produced is model in house with really high end quality product.
In Latin America you will met many of those product and it will be really difficult to check the quality. The best way is to find a manufacturer and to check what are the process of painting (powder coating? liquid painting?), what kind of material is used (tube or plain metal?). Dont hesitate to ask if you can see the workshop. Usually honest manufacturer has no fear to show there production process.
