For the amount of time we spend sitting, we sometimes put little thought into our chairs. A good chair can make all the difference in comfort as well as well as appearance. I have to admit that I like chairs and can often find something comfortable, attractive and inexpensive at IKEA and the like. But I have to say, there is something to be said for going a little upscale to find something of real quality.


Such are the chairs of Emeco – mostly well-crafted aluminum chairs that have that hip industrial design look. I realize these are not everyone’s taste and don’t fit every décor, but you have to admire the craftsmanship and quality.

I like the classic simplicity of the Navy Chair, described as: “Timeless. Chairs admired today and indefinitely. Chairs that span generations and cultures. Built individually by a handful of craftsmen. 77 painstaking steps at a time. The enduring Emeco Classics.”
