One of the benefits of our hardwood stacking chairs is new storage capabilities, as our chairs will take up much less space than the average seating. To fully test this we decided to see how many of our chairs will fit within a 9 ft by 6 ft closet, which seems to be common for our club and university clients. In the photos you can see our Merrimac models, which we have stacked ten high. For most of our stackable models we recommend stacking six to eight chairs, although up to ten is fine for chairs without arms.
After stacking, ten chairs take up about 36 inches by 18 inches of space. The 3′ length was measured by how far out the stacked chairs extend, and the 1.6′ width remained the same as the chair width. It took little time to stack these chairs and move them into this area.
Here’s what we found: for out 9’x6′ storage space, we comfortably placed ninety chairs in it thanks to our stackable feature. If we wanted to place additional chairs in this same closet space, we could add thirty more chairs – or three additional stacks – with very tight spacing between each stack, for a total usable space for one hundred and twenty chairs.
This stacking capability wouldn’t be possible without our advanced joinery, unlike anything else on the market. The Eustis Joint, which makes our seating near-impossible to destroy, ensures that tensile stress from stacking won’t cause them to break. In fact, your chairs are guaranteed to last for twenty years minimum with the Eustis Joint, which is the longest warranty we’ve seen for beautifully-made wood chairs.
In our line of stacking hardwood chairs, we can stack both side and arm chairs as needed. Arm chairs can stack up to six high, while side chairs can stack up to eight or ten high; the stacking capabilities depend on the model and design. If you have a mix of side and arm chairs, they can be stacked together. In fact, they can be different models of Eustis Chairs and still stack fine! We send a quick guide with stacking chairs to show how to best take care of your chairs with stacking for storage, and are happy to offer further guidance at any time if so needed.
