Last week marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, and as such we received a number of requests for the “Titanic Deck Chair” article, which originally ran in 1999. In honor of that fateful night a century ago (and in response to popular demand), we’re making the article and full-size plans available for free as downloadable PDFs.
Only two of the original deck chairs are known to have survived the tragedy, but with this reproduction you can feel as if you own a little piece of history – one that also happens to be ideal for stylish lounging. The fancy chair has many parts and the build is a tad tedious, but nothing but the best for most affluent of the early 20th century, right? If you really want to class up the finished experience, I suggest whipping up some punch romaine, one of the choice beverages found on the first-class menu.
