Emeco was founded in 1944 to make lightweight, non-corrosive, fire resistant and torpedo-proof chairs for the US Navy. The classic 1006 Navy Chair was born, with an instantly recognizable design that is still influential to this day. It was made to last at least 150 years — because that was the best they could do. Today, Emeco continues to lead the industry, exploring and innovating ways to use consumer and industrial waste, and environmentally responsible resources to create and build simple, timeless furniture that lives up to the standards that we inherited from our founders. All their furniture is made in the United States.
