THE SCOUT / REDISCOVERED

On another plane altogether

August 16, 2007

As World War II ended, Southern California aviation suppliers retooled their aluminum fabrication factories to produce furniture. One of the pioneering firms was the now-defunct Burbank-based Deeco, says Andy Hackman of the home furnishings store California Living. Deeco produced this 1946 armchair as well as a matching sun chaise, both made of tubular aluminum and spring-and-slat seats. Hackman uncovered a stash of the pieces, buffed them to like-new condition and plumped them up with Sunbrella cushions in orange or Capri blue. The chairs are $1,750 each; a chaise is $2,000. 601 N. La Brea Ave. (323) 930-2601.
