What the heck is this chair called?

Is it called a canopy chair? I need one and I need to know what it's called. ANy leads appreciated. Seriously. If you live in LA and you see one and it's less than $175 buy it and I will pay you back.

That is considered either a peahen or a peacock chair. Hopefully these two links will help, here and here. Good luck!

Isaspacey--that's what I thought, too, but this one has like a little hood on top that makes it a different shape. It's not as 'fan' as the peacock, it's rounder...

I don't know the name other than canopy but this woman certainly will!

Hmmm... I think that would be a canopy chair. Anyway, it reminds me of the chairs where beauty queens sit.

I have one- minus the canopy. When I bought it in the 80s it was called Papa San chair.

Wow!
I think I bought one of those chairs for my first apt. while in college which means it could not have been more than $25! I am sure it hit the dumpster at the end of the year...so sad. How did I fit that in my tiny, tiny car?

We had one growing up & my mom always called it a "Wickerback Chair"
