Harvard Memorial Hall
University Dining Chairs
Harvard University is one of our best clients. In fact, we’ve installed countless jobs at the university. Furthermore, they value our chairs for their durability and elegance. In fact, our chairs have withstood decades of use in their facility.
After 16 years of continuous use in Annenberg Memorial Hall, the Freshman dining hall, Harvard College started the process of replacing their chairs. Dining halls are extremely high use spaces. Therefore, chairs face countless wear and tear daily. In fact, most hardwood chairs are not designed for high use. Typically, the chair’s joints wear out and fall apart before their time us up. However, we use elite mortise and tenon joinery. We construct our chairs with extreme daily wear and tear by students and staff.
This time around, Harvard ordered 650 Edison chairs. We installed the previous chairs in 1995. While we can’t take credit for the excellent design of this 1870’s era chair, we built them the way we build all of our chairs: to meet the test of time.

We love working with Harvard and cannot wait to commit to another project with them.
