It seemed that a few days earlier, Clausen had been visited in his official Park Commission office by a man named Oscar F. Spate. Spate seemed amiable enough, and he offered Clausen a proposition Clausen saw no difficulty in accepting. It seemed that Spate said he wanted to place comfortable rocking chairs in the parks throughout New York City. And for the privilege of doing so, Spate offered the city the tidy sum of $500 a year.
Rattan is the most common kind of wicker that is used to make most of the wicker furniture including dining chairs. It is a fibrous material obtained from a plant similar to palm. Rattan is quite strong, flexible and very resistant to cracking and breaking. Stain, paint or varnish can be easily applied to furniture made from rattan. Furniture made from rattan can be easily painted in different colors to match your home décor. Among the strongest of the different types of wicker, rattan is commonly used to make dining chairs, dining tables, sofas, divans and other furniture.
It all started in Central Park on June 22, 1901, when a group of people spotted rows of bright green rocking chairs along the park's mall, near the casino. Usually in this same spot, stood rows of uncomfortable wooden hard benches, so it was a pleasure indeed for the park-goes to sit and rock and enjoy the wondrous summer day.
