Industry West: Good Deals on Marais Chairs

Based out of Beaufort, South Carolina, Industry West is a manufacturer of industrial furniture. Their catalog is composed of "inspired recreations of 19th and 20th century designs," (aka replicas) that are made from reclaimed wood and metal.

They make a nice version of Xavier Pauchard's often-copied Marias Chair (which has also been copied by Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and other big stores). First introduced in 1934, the galvanized Marias Chair was designed to withstand tough weather, and it became a staple of cafe seating at French bistros.

Versions at Design Within Reach start at $250, but Industry West's start around $135. In addition to the Marais, Industry West carries Bistro Chairs, Machinist Stools, and metal and wood dining tables in the low hundreds.
