Furniture Glossary: Chairs, Papasan Chair

Also called a mamasan or bowl chair, this is a large-rounded style with an angle akin to a futon. The bowl shape rests on frame made of rattan, typically. It has also been produced with a wicker or wood base. The papasan was introduced in the US around 1950 and really boomed in the casual and freethinking decade of the 1970s.

These folding type designs are also called "moon chairs".
