Westminster School Dining Hall

Westminster School in Simsbury, Connecticut and their architect Gund Partnership have hired Eustis Chair to design and  manufacture stacking wooden dining hall chairs for their new dining hall opening this Fall. The new dining hall will seat 600 students and staff, marking the first time in many years that the entire school can share meals together. Westminster and Gund Partnership chose our Westminster stacking chair for it's ability to stack eight chairs high, and our unmatched durable hardwood chair construction made possible by our patented Eustis Joint®. This will be the second hardwood chair project for one of the most prestigious, private boarding and day college preparatory schools in the USA.
Standard wooden chair caster vs Eustis Chair caster with extra durable collared design

Details Matter For Durability

When you need durable wooden chairs for high use areas, details matter.  We focus our attention and design to make sure every part of your chairs from the chair joints down to our optional castors will last for decades even in school and university use. Our patented Eustis Joint® construction, and our collared casters are perfect examples of how we invest extra labor and source the best materials for all of our chairs thus creating the best hardwood chairs available. You can see in the photo to the right the difference between a standard caster which only has a pin going into the chair leg and can easily fall out after just a few months or break away in the wood, versus our Eustis Chair castor which is inset into the chair leg and collared around the wood to withstand years of daily use.
