Boarding School Chair
Our mission is to create the most durable, sustainable, yet elegant chairs on the market. Therefore, we design our chairs specifically for high use spaces. Spaces such libraries, university dining halls, and study spaces face the most daily wear and tear. For the average wooden chair, the chair joint is the weakest part of the chair. However, we design our chairs with our patented joinery. Our craftspeople construct our chairs with steel rods and inject retrograde epoxy for added stability. Also, a large portion of our chairs a are stackable. Stacking chairs provide ease in storage, set up, and take down for events. Boarding schools are prime example of high use spaces that need the most durable chairs money can buy.
The University of Liggett School reached out with a renovation project. University Liggett School is located in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. Centerbrook Architects of Connecticut designed their renovation project. The School looked at all the major library resources in choosing new chairs and tables for a 2-year renovation program of their libraries and classrooms. Our Novato boarding school chair won out based on the durability of our unique mortise & tenon construction, combined with its traditional good looks.
