The Emeco Barstool was commissioned in the 1940s by the US Navy in World War II for use on warships. It had to be able to withstand torpedo blasts to the side of a destroyer. Most wartime chairs are still in perfect condition and are occasionally available on the U.S. civilian market as military surplus from mothballed Navy ships. This is a replica of this chair and it will last you a lifetime. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. This product comes with a 12 month warranty.
