The Harkness Chair
Traditional Classroom Chair
The Harkness is a classic style of chair. It has elements of a Windsor chair, a very traditional design. The Harkness chair was first designed for Philips Exeter Academy. Furthermore, the Harkness learning style was first invented as a collaborative classroom space. The style highlighted individual as well as group contributions and collective success.
The Harkness Chair’s construction is no different than any of our other Eustis Chairs. Moreover, each chair is made with our patented joinery and comes complete with our 20 year warranty protecting against joint failure. Most warranties only cover hardwood chairs for about 5 years against manufacturing defects. Joint failure is the most common reason hardwood chairs break, but not those from Eustis.
There are many things to consider before purchasing a classroom chair. Does the chair match or enhance the ambiance and feel of your school and classroom? Eustis Chair offers a wide variety of chair designs to fit every style of decor. Furthermore, Eustis Chair builds all of our chairs in the USA from any hardwood specie and any stain color to perfectly match your Harkness Tables. We also offer stylish and comfortable chairs which are saddled and sanded for comfort for varied seating positions.
