Care + Maintenance

All Navy Officer chairs are made by hand from recycled aluminum, with either a hand brushed, clear anodized finish or a black powder coated finish. Each piece is unique with subtle differences.

Aluminum frames:
Clean the aluminum frame with soap and water, and dry with a soft cloth. You can also use Windex®, Formula 409® or similar spray cleaner, with or without bleach followed by a lint free towel.

Hydrogen peroxide-based cleaners may also be used, dilution level 1:10. Wash any film or residue with hot water.

Do not use Stainless Steel cleaner on any aluminum furniture. For heavy-duty dirt or oil stains on a hand brushed frame, use a very hot water and strong soap, followed by LIGHT scrubbing in the direction of the aluminum grain with a soft bristled brush. If the frame finish is brushed aluminum, you may also use a damp Scotchbrite® pad.

Glides are the small "feet" at the bottom of each chair leg. Adding new glides - and making sure you have the right type of glides for your floor - can make the world of difference and breathe new life into your product. Learn more
