Kudos to Emeco on the design. Unfortunately, my wallet is not currently set to absorb 1600 Euros for one chair.
Cost aside, the idea of blending shiny metal pretties with pops of color and natural textures has me on the hunt for light on the purse heavy metals.

In walks the Shirley Stack chair by ItalModern. Six of these metal and teak beauties can be had for half the cost of one uber groovy rocker.

Just add cushions for an instant color pop or to tie in the current room scheme. Another bonus, like the Shirley, these can also be used outdoors if the metal mood gives way to other ideas. The standard shape also allows the use of standard side chair slip covers for fast easy changes.
As for fabrics to pair with metals...this year's color options are all over the wheel which makes the choosing difficult (and easy since it is hard to get off trend).
Three I am loving at the moment are all from BeautifulFabric.com:
I'm considering this one for a casual chair...If I decide to use it I'll post pics!
Chipotle Ocean covers a couple of areas. Deep blues, indigo and cobalt are popping up on the runways and in the design books this year. Traditional patterns are also showcased across the genre. This is a nice clean update with great color that can crossover easily between modern and transitional. I love it. A great way to spruce up some island seating in a yellow kitchen. Add a big red glass or ceramic bowl or maybe a few red screen prints of scenes or adverts and get that primary color trend covered without looking like a crayola box.
