Emeco chairs thrive outdoors! The original Emeco 1006 Navy Chair was created in 1944 to survive harsh conditions on Navy ships — it was designed to withstand a torpedo blast.  Emeco chairs are still built to exceed high standards of durability and strength.  The Emeco aluminum chairs are perfect for outdoor use, they are anodized and non-corrosive, they do not heat up to the sun, they are lightweight and easy to clean. The Emeco Broom chair (shown above) is happy indoors or out.  Broom is made of 90% post-industrial waste-75% reclaimed polypropylene and 15% reclaimed wood fiber-and 10% glass fiber. Like all Emeco chairs, Broom is made in the USA. Lire la suite…
