Washington University in St. Louis finished installing over 100 of our Willard chairs this week in their dining space. This private university was founded in 1853 and is one of the most exclusive educational institutions in America, accepting roughly one of every six applicants to their school. Washington U. is consistently ranked amongst the top twenty schools nationwide, further encouraged with dozens of Nobel laureates that are affiliated with them.
Washington University came to Eustis Chair as they needed hardwood chairs that could specifically stack; our stacking component would make up for the lack of space in moving furniture around for event configuration. We have worked closely with the facilities staff this year on this project, with more to come as further renovations take place across their campus. The photo at right of the finished chairs still complements their new home beautifully – despite the renovations still under way! We expect the Willard to be in use for many decades to come, especially with the guarantee of the Eustis Joint in the mix.
