What We Do
At Innit Designs, we manufacture contemporary furniture for outdoors and indoors, with a focus on commercially approved designs suitable for hotels, restaurants, and stylish homes.
Many of our designs incorporate an element of woven vinyl (PVC) cord on a powder-coated or plated steel frame. We also weave our furnishings with other materials, including palm leaf, leather, hemp, cotton, and parachute cord.
In 2009 Innit introduced the USA, Canada, and many other parts of the world to the Acapulco Chair, which has now become an international classic. There are many replicas out there now, so make sure you get the first and highest quality, commercially approved Acapulco chair from us.
We have a catalog of 25+ designs available in a broad range of colors and color patterns. We also have 50+ existing designs we produce for larger commercial projects. For design trade members who would like access to these designs, please just ask us here.
How It All Started
Paul Yacht, the founder and principal of Innit got his start in the world of design by working as a set decorator in Toronto’s busy film industry.
Fast forward to 2002, when Paul decided to follow his dreams and head south to Puerto Escondido, Mexico to kick back and learn how to surf. For fun and to make enough cash for a rustically opulent life on the beach, he opened a beachside bookstore/cinema/surf-shop/bar and used Acapulco Chairs as cinema seating and lounge chairs for the bookstore.
The decision to use these retro classics was obvious. They’re cool, comfortable, versatile, unique, and easy to hose down when soda or cerveza spilled (the popcorn dropped right through). After fielding requests from all over the world for these chairs he decided to perfect the design and export them to Canada and the USA. And so Innit was born.
In 2011, as the business grew, Innit moved north of the Rio Grande and is now located in Toronto.
Paul works from the beach and continues to surf as often as possible…
