I love it when Emeco sends us pictures of their products in action in cool spaces. Here’s a look at the latest mid-century chairs mixing things up around the world.

From the U.K.: Simple Simon Design stripped this old pub all the way down to the sandblasted brickwork and mixed design features of reclaimed wood, bicycle handlebars, bespoke vintage wallpapers with multi-colored classic chairs, including Navy Chairs from Emeco.
At the opposite side of the design universe, this super-luxe poolside vignette was taken at the at Oriental Residence Bangkok. Each unit from the executive deluxe through the three bedroom units were designed by Chanintr Living and Abacus Design, Thailand. Emeco stools add simple geometry to the glamorous yet minimalistic space.
Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park has vroom vroomed into the most popular spot at the park. This nostalgic space features Emeco classic aluminum chairs surrounded by vintage-style gas tanks.
Finally the diner in Cars Land features the chair that started it all, the original Emeco 1006 Navy Chair that was first manufactured in 1944. It recalls an era when a rest stop was a fun diner, when no one worried about how many calories were in milk shakes and when your waitress very well could have been named Flo. These chairs have stood the tests of time not only in their strength, but also in their style. They fit right into the most contemporary of spaces today as well as right in with the wrenches in a fifties car-themed diner.
