With withering barrel chairs and multiple events on the horizon, the Vermont National Country Club in South Burlington knew they needed an upgrade. Now they’re home to over a hundred of our Council Room chairs, with an even mix of arm and side versions for better versatility. The Club hosts a Jack Nicklaus championship course with panoramic mountain views from the clubhouse porch, overall known as an excellent social club in the heart of New England.
We originally began working with Vermont National in late 2017, when the club fell in love with our chairs and hoped to order some for their use. The Council Room design was chosen over three other competing choices, and we heard that its ability to stack 6-8 high was a winning plus. From its eased seating angles to deeper seat depth, this chair embraces the full sense of power and prestige that went into its namesake. Coupled with an unmatched 20-year warranty with our famous Eustis Joint, this prestige is guaranteed to hold sway in your club through many decades of repeat use. But don’t just take our word on the splendor: contact us now for a sample of the Council Room or any one of our line’s unbeatable options. From traditional to contemporary settings, Eustis Chair can make the perfect fit that truly stands the test of time.

For a Colonial Revival homestead in the heart of the South, Eustis Chair was the way to go! The University of Georgia requested one hundred of our Merrimac chairs for the renovated Quarters A building, also known as the Hill Crest Estate. Quarters A was built around the turn of the century with Queen Anne architectural influences, operating as everything from a private residence to the Commanding Officer's Quarters for the U.S. Navy. Today it serves as a stunning venue for receptions, conferences, and other special events on UGA’s striking campus in Athens.
These chairs were a highly anticipated addition for events at Quarters A, as our chairs nicely complement Southern-style architecture and design. When we first spoke with UGA in 2017 they requested chairs that had both a special, elegant look to them and stacking capabilities. The Merrimac – along with the rest of our stackable chair line – can handle it all: impeccable dining experiences, superb presentation, and ease of convenience to boot! UGA is thrilled with the purchase and looks forward to many decades of weddings, presidential functions, and student-sponsored events with their timeless seating choice.

Now that the 4th of July weekend is here (or as much as it can be when we celebrate on a Wednesday!) country clubs across the country are seeing an explosion of parties and get-togethers. Longmeadow Country Club in western Massachusetts is no exception in this regard, but supremely exceptional with their completed renovation overhaul. Eustis Chair has delivered over two hundred Council Room side chairs, arm chairs, and Jenkins barstools as the final touch to their striking dining areas. Longmeadow boasts a slew of amenities for its members and guests, including a nationally renowned championship golf course and a choice selection of tennis courts. It’s played host to all levels of golf competitions and looks forward to more in the near future.
We worked closely with Champigny Home Design to craft the most complementary seating Longmeadow has ever seen. When the club celebrates its 100th year in 2022, it will be done in style with the incredible clubhouse redesign. For the general manager this is the culmination of receiving “the clubhouse that the golf club deserves,” in which Eustis Chair plays a role. Congratulations to Longmeadow Country Club for their new-and-improved facility!

A few weeks ago we delivered hundreds of Merrimac chairs to the Lake Geneva Country Club in southeastern Wisconsin. The club is known as the oldest golf club in the Midwest still on its founding site, which was established at the turn of the century in 1895. It is well-known for hosting the annual Men's Golf Invitational, cited as the oldest consecutive invitational in the United States that is specifically a match-play tournament. Its namesake city is ranked as one of the best lake towns in North America, especially renowned for its notable mansions connected with Chicago elite.
This very traditional club needed new chairs for their 100-year-old clubhouse dining room, replacing former seating that was in need of upgrades. For Lake Geneva’s board members, an essential highlight of the Merrimac model was its ability to stack up to eight chairs high. With limited storage options it’s Eustis Chair to the rescue! After the installation the board let us know of the warm praises that their membership gave to the new seating, noting the superb comfort they now enjoy during the Club’s main meals and special events. The Merrimac is customized to be light and easy to handle for their facilities staff, making it all the more desirable in dining rooms and halls throughout America. We’re pleased with the impact and look forward to future installs throughout the Midwest.

Nashville’s Richland Country Club has unveiled the first phase of a $20 million renovation, in which Eustis Chair figures with a delivery of seventy Council Room armchairs. Richland traces its beginning to the turn of the twentieth century, and strikes an excellent balance between tradition and modernity with their newest upgrades. From nineteenth century artifacts to commemorations of its past presidents, this club community heartily embraces its history and stands proud as a premier organization.
The operations team chose Harris Interiors to spearhead the modernization whilst maintaining its timeless ambiance. For their clubhouse – which sees multiple banquets take place every year – it was essential to find a chair with both sophistication and stackability. The Council Room armchair was the perfect answer to their needs, with spectacular comfort for their patrons and ease of transport for their hospitality staff. These new chairs came with custom staining to perfectly match the rest of the decoration, crafting an enduring atmosphere for the best that Tennessee has to offer. We’re pleased to continue our relationships with institutions throughout the Southeast, where our unmatched seating options enhance the genteel charm of its most respected institutions.

Two models of Eustis Chair – the Virginian side chair and the Jenkins barstool – have made their way to the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The Club was first organized in the nineteenth century, where it took up residence on the Marblehead Harbor just north of Boston. Its members enjoy incredible sailing and racing events each year, along with further athletic and social activities for their close-knit community.
Their members deserved elegant and comfortable seating, but such seating also needed to stack and fit around their 60 inch tables. The Virginian came into play with stackability and a seat width smaller than 17 inches - a must for 10-60 use. The Club’s operation team also chose the Jenkins barstool for the unveiling of their new Harbor Bar. We shipped hundreds of chairs last month to fill their renovated dining room, which arrived just in time for their first event of the season. Thanks to the overall design that Eustis Chair complements, CYC’s Commodore considers it the most beautiful bar on the Eastern seaboard.
Both the Virginian and the Jenkins barstool have found homes in premier clubs and dining spaces across the country, and our latest installation of both at CYC will remain for decades to come. Many thanks to the excellent designers and operations team for their collaboration on this project!
