The Tall Edison

The Tall Edison Chair: A Perfect Fit for Institutional Spaces


When it comes to outfitting institutional spaces such as schools and colleges, choosing the right furniture is crucial. These spaces are high-use areas that require durable and sturdy pieces that can withstand daily wear and tear. This is where the Tall Edison Chair comes in, providing both height and presence to any room while also offering exceptional durability.


The Tall Edison Chair is a reproduction of Thomas Edison‘s original workshop and laboratory chair, the Edison. It features unique spindles and extra metal supports, and we’ve kept every design detail intact while adding our own craftsmanship. This antique reproduction is made to withstand the test of time, making it the perfect choice for high-use spaces like school dining halls.


Bowdoin College chose the Tall Edison Chair for its largest dining hall, Thorne Hall because they needed an extremely durable hardwood chair that could withstand the rigors of daily use. At Eustis Chair, we make every Tall Edison Chair to order by skilled wood craftsmen in our American factory. It’s offered only in American Ash but can be stained to match most other hardwoods, giving you the flexibility to customize the chair to suit your institution’s space.


We take great pride in creating historically accurate chairs that are not only beautiful but also built to last. Our Tall Edison Chair is no exception, providing a traditional style that looks great in many different venues. It is a perfect fit for school dining halls, with its wooden seat and back, and without arms. And, it’s constructed using the mortise and tenon method, ensuring that it will stand up to daily use for many years to come.


We offer a 10-year warranty on all of our chairs, including the Tall Edison Chair, giving you peace of mind and assurance that you’re making a smart investment.
