Dining and Side Chairs

20-06 Chair-Limited Edition

Not many chairs can boast weighing 5.5 lbs, much less being made out of 80% recycled aluminum. If you are contemplating purchase, there’s also the fact that a numbered run of 500 chairs was made exclusively for DWR, so these chairs are a limited edition and have a number engraved on their backs (2/500, 3/500, etc.). That might sweeten the deal for those of you that like “collecting” furniture.

-20-06 Chair, recently introduced by Foster & Partners for Emeco
-Stackable up to 10 high and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use (aluminum may patina with outdoor use).

Anodized aluminum.

“WB Chair”

White on White just relaunched their new site. While perusing it today, I found the WB chair for only $135 (while the original sells for around $500). Such a great deal. Mind you, it is a reproduction, but if you’re in the Ikea price range, you may try White on White.

Victoria Sidechair by Philippe Starck

It’s always nice to find a well designed chair under the $300 mark.
“Fashioned in transparent polycarbonate, Starck’s modern interpretation of a baroque-inspired form with the Louis Ghost chair quickly attained icon status, prompting him to design a complementary armless version that’s ideal for dining. A daring example of single-mold injection, these classic Louis XV-style chairs are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Made by Kartell.”
