Emeco since 1944, when Wilton Dinges envisioned manufacturing sculptured masterworks, Emeco has been focused on a single goal: combining the best materials with the highest skilled craftsman. Quality isn't an accident. It is about process and people. Dave Lake started in 1961. He loves his job. It's hard work with a lot of elbow grease and pride, "but seeing each handcrafted chair makes it all worth it."
