Best's Chimayo Easels offer a strong and elegant single-mast design. They adjust to a variety of positions for both sitting and standing, and fold flat easily for storage. Chimayo is perfect for apartment living, for a cottage or second home, for an office or den where space is limited. Many artists choose Chimayo as their second easel. They are elegant and complement any decor, yet they do not require the huge footprint of larger H-frame easels. Like other professional easels from Best, they are made with hand-rubbed, oil-finished, solid oak. They're popular with students and professionals because of their quality, compactness, and economy. Top and bottom painting trays slide up and down, then lock securely into place. They have rubber grips to hold the canvas secure. A wedge-lock system keeps the painting from wobbling. Legs have rubber feet to prevent sliding on smooth surfaces. On the two larger models, the painting tray has an extra shelf for supplies.
Best offers three models in the Chimayo family, like a papa bear, a mama bear, and a baby bear, to fit different painting requirements. They represent a tradeoff of strength and stabilty for compactness and portability. Put a full-size Chimayo in your studio and a Medium Collapsible Chimayo in your guest cottage, while keeping a Student Chimayo in your pied-à-terre.
