Bronze “S” Arm Chaises by Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan (c. 1950)
Walter Lamb outdoor furniture for Brown Jordan is synonymous with California design. Originally conceived in the mid-1940s by using surplus bronze tubing from the U.S. Navy, Lamb’s classic outdoor designs have outstanding durability. Ideal for the North American landscape, the support material is made of cotton yacht cord that needs replacement about every 5-10 years, depending on its use. Upon release, the line was offered in several patinas – verdigris, brown bronze, or golden bronze – which over time take on an enhanced patina with weathering. Comprised of structural, bold lines made from industrial-strength materials, his chairs, ottomans, and tables remain as some of the most comfortable and iconic Mid-Century Modern outdoor furniture.
