The Robert and Rose Skillman branch of the Detroit Public Library was officially opened today. This elegant Arts & Crafts era library was made possible by a generous bequest from the Skillman family, and features a custom chair designed and built by Eustis Chair. The Skillman Chair is made of Quartersawn White Oak, and features the pinned mortise & tenon construction used at the turn of the 20th century to insure that hardwood chairs would endure for generations. View our Public Library Chair Installations page to view more photos of this and other similar projects.
