Costco gets Elite

Product_15685A major manufacturer of modern metal furniture gets into the local scene by stocking their products at big box stores.

Elite Manufacturing broke the barrier between high-end retail shops and democratized design by getting its furniture into one of the nation's largest stores: Costco.

Orange22's Dario Antonioni apparently had something to do with connecting Elite with Costco, so maybe he could help other mannies break in to larger markets, too.

Elite creates bars, barstools, casual dining and occasional tables from a modern mix of metals, glass and upholstery.

Surprised at Elite's entrance into Costco? Take a look at the store's other deals. It carries iconic styles like the Mies chair (that's the Barcelona); the International Collection (Le Corbusier's classic club chair with chrome details) and the Egg and Ball Chairs.
