Our Patented Joint
Robert H. Eustis, a retired Mechanical Engineering Professor from Stanford University, developed a new way to join two pieces of hardwood using concealed steel rods and space-age adhesives. This patented process is now known as the Eustis Joint®, and it creates a joint that is stronger than the hardwood used to build the chair.
The Eustis Joint® allows us to design hardwood chairs without stretchers that are stronger than our stretcher chairs. Eliminating the stretcher - without sacrificing durability - allows Eustis Chair to offer two lines of hardwood chairs that truly stand out: elegant contemporary chairs with simple, clean lines: and stacking chairs that are as durable as they are elegant and comfortable.
We believe that the Eustis Joint® has set the standard for elegant hardwood chairs that are designed and constructed to endure for generations.
