The Garrote. The victim was locked into a seat with his back against a flat surface or a metal rod. His neck was strapped with leather, string or a metal band, attached to a wheel or crank in the back. The wheel would turn so his neck was crushed agonizingly slowly, eventually suffocating him to death.
Acapulco furniture is a unique mid-century modern style that consists of an egg-shaped frame with hand-woven stringed fibers that form the seating foundation. This style has been adapted from its original form to renditions of Acapulco design that are seen in the form of dining sets, sofas, chat sets, rocking chairs, leather woven chairs, and even wooden Acapulco chairs.
