Emeco Chairs and Stools Are as Fresh and Modern as Ever

I love seeing my favorite pieces used in fresh designs, both commercial and residential. We recently received some gorgeous shots of the iconic Emeco chairs in action that I thought I’d share.

This is Urban Farmer bar by environmental designer, David Ashen of D-ASH Design. The space combines the 1951 Barstools from Emeco with reclaimed materials such as a 20-foot communal table. You can visit it on the 8th floor lobby of the Nines Hotel in Portland. The restaurant honors local culinary traditions, sourcing ingredients from organic farms nearby. But can you can go visit the cult that raised the chicken you want to order like Fred and Carrie did on Portlandia? I’m not sure.

Here’s a closer look at the 1951 stool. It’s looking better than ever in 2012.

This may be one of the most aesthetically pleasing workplace cafeterias I’ve ever seen. Well, it’s more of an intimate kitchen, and it’s at the headquarters of Clif Bars. It’s called Kali’s Kitchen and their website is pretty great; check it out. The employees over there are eating a lot of other things besides energy bars! Designed by ZGF Architecture, the kitchen design prioritized sustainability and re-using materials. Appropriately, the seating includes the 1006 Navy Chair and Navy Stools, which are made with 80% recycled aluminum.

Here’s a close up of the Navy Stool.

If you have an Emeco fetish like I do, you’ll love checking out their Tumblr stream. I also rounded some Navy Chairs up a long time ago for my other gig at Houzz. Designers tend to pick the chairs for the freshest rooms around, whether at a home’s kitchen island or in the chicest of bars and restaurants.

Thanks so much to Flickr member Laurana for adding these cheerful shots of her kitchen to our Fresh New Spaces Group. This yellow will really wake one up while waiting for the coffee to brew! I’m sure on those winter days when the sun sets very early in Finland, this color helps brighten things up.

If you can read Finnish, you can learn more about this kitchen on Laurana’s blog.

This is a quickie today guys, as you can tell from “Inspiration Monday” and “Organization Wednesday” faltering as of late, I’m a disorganized mess! More on how to fix that on Wednesday, hopefully! I spied this backsplash on Jetsetter.com (I love to peruse the gorgeous hotels they have on there and dream about trips that will never happen). This one’s from an apartment that was for rent in Paris:

The backsplash is made of vintage postcards. I think because everything is so slick and shiny and the cards are lined up perfectly it doesn’t look kitschy or cluttered. Love It!

I am very envious of this lovely room belonging to Flickr member from the right bank/ Ally. It really shows how beautiful the contrast between a white room and wood can be. I also love her mix of different styles and eras, as well as her unique centerpiece. The large chandelier is perfectly scaled to the room, and gives this special part of the kitchen importance. I love Ally’s style, you can see a whole lot more about this eat-in kitchen in her home and more of her great taste at her blog, fromtherightbank.
