When relaxing on a Commodore® Steamer Chair, you are transported back to the ‘golden age’ of high-speed, high-style, transatlantic cruising liners. This classic, superbly designed, Steamer Chair was inspired by the elegance and style from its era.
From the 1930’s, these transatlantic journeys guaranteed the decadence of high society, with elegant departures from Southampton to New York, in superb ravishing comfort.
With iconic ships, such as the gorgeous SS Normandie. She entered service in 1935 as the largest and fastest passenger ship afloat; she is still the most powerful steam turbo-electric-propelled passenger ship ever built. To the magnificence of Queen Mary, the British ocean liner that sailed primarily on the North Atlantic Ocean.
Queen Mary sailed on her maiden voyage on 27 May 1936 and captured the Blue Riband in August of that year. Historical events are documented, with the ship carrying the Queen Mother, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Laurel and Hardy, and Winston Churchill (six times). Queen Mary even came with on-board kennels, as Elizabeth Taylor and her French Poodle 'Teeny' were delighted to discover in 1947, and ‘silver-screen’ celebrity status, such as Marlene Dietrich disembarking at New York in 1950.
