Racing & Emotion USA (R&E USA) is excited to announce that it is now offering American-Made Chairs in collaboration with parent brand Racing & Emotion based in Le Mans, France.

“North American customers have inquired about the possibility of making our collection here and working with R&E France we have responded,” said Glenn Oyoung, Marketing Director for R&E USA. The exclusive US distributor for R&E, R&E USA has promoted the brand and its collection of motorsports-inspired Art Ball and Art Egg chairs since 2011.

R&E USA will offer the “Cobra Day” and “917 LM20″ chairs – bearing Shelby and Gulf liveries respectively – that are painted by hand in Los Angeles, California. “These two particular liveries make the most sense when it comes to offering an American-made option,” said Oyoung. Shelby “is American as apple pie” and Gulf has “a lasting connection with the U.S. dating back to at the GT40 and Mclaren efforts,” he continued.

American-made chairs will sell for slightly less than their French counterparts, due to savings attributed mainly to shipping costs. In every other respect the level of quality will be there, approved by Le Mans-based R&E brand managers.
