It’s no surprise that the Coronado Public Library would live up to its name. The name Coronado is Spanish for “the crowned one,” well-known for its coveted peninsula location in San Diego Bay. Its library was founded the same year as the city itself, and has since then been a point of pride for its community. During the turn of the century the Coronado Library Trustees built a classical revival building for the library, where it still stands today and serves as the Spreckels Reading Room. It is this reading room that needed a facelift: chairs that the library had bought for the space weren’t holding up, and the library director looked at multiple chairs before deciding on our Charleston model.
The Charlestons will now complement the splendor of their original library space to the fullest extent. Its remarkable comfort and aesthetic appeal has won accolades like the Modern Library Awards Gold Medal, which has spurred further excitement in trying these chairs nationwide. With Coronado’s purchase comes the most valuable seat engineering on the market with the proprietary Eustis Joint. For libraries across the country, Eustis Chairs make it possible to allocate resources to other projects without worrying over replacing their furniture. Even in spaces with the highest demands, our chairs truly stand the test of time with a twenty-year warranty and five times that of a service life.
