University of Michigan Reading Room Chair
In 2017, we began working with the University of Michigan to create a Captain chair prototype to fit their Law Library Reading Room. This reading room is a stunning neo-Gothic space. Similarly, it includes fifty foot vaulted ceilings, oak wainscoting, and over 350,000 volumes along its walls. Above all, one of its more unique attributes is its stained-glass windows. The windows depict the seals of notable colleges and universities worldwide. The university is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its grandeur on Ann Arbor’s campus.
After putting on the finishing touches to the Captain design, we delivered the final shipment of Michigan’s 350 reading room chairs earlier this week. In fact, we built the universities captain design similar to the one in our line. We engineered our Captains chair and reproduced UMichigan’s existing chair. A handful of the chairs in our line are antique reproductions. We are always willing to reproduce other beloved designs. Our team ensured that UMichigan was pleased with the progress every step of the way. Finally,we created truly exceptional seating for law students and visitors. Similarly, with Eustis Joints in place, these chairs are sure to stand the test of time in a truly timeless setting.
