Anyone try this chair?

Post by Flying Laughter on Wed Jan 11, 2012 2:38 pm

I'm looking for a sturdy portable directors chair. I have looked at several including black proffesional makeup artist direcotrs chairs. I came across this one recently:

Anyone tried it? Was it any good? Sturdy?

I have seen a few painters use it & like it. Personally I prefer the Easy-up, which is similar, as it comes with a tote bag that keeps it clean & I can toss my fold up stool & sponges in for easier organization. I add a stretchy animal print pillowcase on the back to cover the seat & to prevent little tykes from being/feeling insecure.

I have seen lots of threads for this chair: http://www.amazon.com/HOLDER-CARRY-CHAIRS-FOLDING-Table-Storage-WARRANTY-HIGH-PRODUCT/dp/B000OF4AGG/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1326319921&sr=1-4

The one I am asking about is a little different. It folds up even smaller than a regular directors chair. I like the idea of the carrying case too. I can wheel my fatmax and have my chair over my shoulder in a tote. Smile I just would like to get a recommendation from a fellow face painter. Smile

It's substantially heavier than the ez-up one. Just an fyi--compared it at a gig with mine and another painters new one. Price difference was nice, but not worth it, in both my & the new owner's opinion.

Dear Flying Laughter:
I love my Tuscany director's chair.
I carry it over my shoulder and pul my FatMax.
The chair is one solid piece of fabric so little ones don't slip through the back. It telescopes open and closes beautifully and is solid enough for children to climb up unassisted.

The only drawbacks for me are:
The chair is really deep so I have to lean over, killing my back, until I placed a pillow with a washable cover and ties to keep it in place.
Carrying a folding stool to help children up is another consideration.
The legs get tangled easily in the carrying case drawstring, so just when you're in a hurry to leave, you have to stop and reload the chair bag.

I hope this helps!
Lisa

I got my Easy Up at directorschairs.com by hayneedles.com. I think I paid $69 for it Smile
