Nook: Hi + Lo: Aluminum Navy Chair

Wednesday

Hi + Lo: Aluminum Navy Chair

Legend has it that an Emeco Navy chair was tossed from a six-story window, and survived with a few minor scratches. After that, the Navy selected these chairs for their ships, because they are lightweight, indestructible and undamaged by salty sea air. We're pretty sure that Crate & Barrel's version hasn't gone through the exhaustive 77-step process that makes an authentic Emeco chair so durable. However, it might be a great choice if you have no plans to throw it from a tall building or sail around the world.


High: Emeco 1006 Navy Side Chair @ DWR, $352 (brushed) and $952 (polished)
Low: Delta side chair @ Crate & Barrel, $99
