Walter Lamb // A Totally Tubular Outdoor Collection

Following World War II, Robert Brown (Brown Jordan) sought to introduce a product utilizing reclaimed materials. Collaborating with well-known designer, Walter Lamb, these modern prototypes were crafted utilizing bronze and copper tubing salvaged from sunken naval ships at Pearl Harbor. Lamb’s’ signature ultra-cool curvy furniture pieces, lounge chairs, dining tables, benches and more, combine extruded metal frames with hand-wrapped, marine-grade, cording that is flexible enough to provide comfort but strong enough to withstand the elements. The bronze or copper frames do not rust and will develop a beautiful patina over time.
