MSU's Wharton Center Installs Two Eustis Chair Designs

Today Eustis Chairs arrived at MSU's Wharton Center for installation at this top venue. This is a very special performing arts space that has made its mark on every level. The Wharton Center is the largest performing arts venue in the state of Michigan. On a national scale, it's known for being the number one performing arts venue that's owned by a university, in this case Michigan State University in East Lansing. Globally, Wharton Center is known for both world premier commissions along with hosting one of the top twenty international venues of its size. We were delighted that we could work with an institution that has impressed everyone that comes to visit - we're ready to come out and view performances during their upcoming season, including the highly anticipated Hamilton and music from Harry Potter.

With both local and international flocking to their shows, the Wharton Center realized it needed two different types of chairs: comfortable stacking chairs for easy maneuverability, and larger chairs for patrons that require extra seating space. On both counts Eustis Chair could provide: in collaboration with Irwin Seating Company we built Virginian stacking chairs and crafted our newest chair design in the Music Hall (pictured). This chair is wider than our usual lineup with overhanging upholstery that best complements performing arts venues both large and small. Let us know if you spot our chairs the next time you visit this gorgeous center!

Bohemian Chairs for Sorority at University of Kentucky

With a beautiful new fraternity house opening in the fall, Alpha Chi Omega at the University of Kentucky sprung for Eustis Chair. AXO was first founded in the late 1800s and is now present on almost two hundred campuses nationwide. Its chapter at the University of Kentucky hit the ground running in 2016 when plans for a chapter house began, which will culminate in a gorgeous campus location this fall. For the various events and day-to-day activities they enlisted PDR Interiors to choose comfortable, durable furniture for their new space.

As of this week, almost a hundred of our Bohemian chairs are now placed in Lexington and ready to provide decades of intense service. The Bohemian stacking chair was originally created in conjunction with the Bohemian Club of San Francisco in 2011. In the seven years since, Bohemians have found themselves popular in a plethora of banquet halls, dining spaces, and common areas throughout America. Its minimalist elegance makes its comfort all the more impressive, and its stackability thanks to the Eustis Joint is hard to beat! Congratulations to Alpha Chi Omega for their campus chapter house - we're delighted to have a part in contributing to their new home.

Charleston Library Chairs in the Coronado Public Library

It's no surprise that the Coronado Public Library would live up to its name. The name Coronado is Spanish for "the crowned one," well-known for its coveted peninsula location in San Diego Bay. Its library was founded the same year as the city itself, and has since then been a point of pride for its community. During the turn of the century the Coronado Library Trustees built a classical revival building for the library, where it still stands today and serves as the Spreckels Reading Room. It is this reading room that needed a facelift: chairs that the library had bought for the space weren't holding up, and the library director looked at multiple chairs before deciding on our Charleston model. 

The Charlestons will now complement the splendor of their original library space to the fullest extent. Its remarkable comfort and aesthetic appeal has won accolades like the Modern Library Awards Gold Medal, which has spurred further excitement in trying these chairs nationwide. With Coronado's purchase comes the most valuable seat engineering on the market with the proprietary Eustis Joint. For libraries across the country, Eustis Chairs make it possible to allocate resources to other projects without worrying over replacing their furniture. Even in spaces with the highest demands, our chairs truly stand the test of time with a twenty-year warranty and five times that of a service life.

Vermont National Country Club Welcomes New Council Room Chairs

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.

River Run Country Club Owns Newest Council Room Chairs

After seeing our warranty and proprietary joint, River Run Country Club in North Carolina knew they had to order from us. We recently delivered 70 chairs as part of their major renovations across the club, with the goal of crafting a completely new experience for current and future members. River Run is less than thirty miles from Charlotte's city center and offers incredible amenities, including a renowned championship-level golf course and newly modernized social areas. 

Club chairs from our Eustis line are excellent for River Run's weddings and club events like wine tastings and holiday celebrations. The ever-popular Council Room design was put in place earlier this year - head over to River Run's social media and you may see our work in their photos! The Council Room is an especially notable chair for its flexibility in any setting: patrons love the seating at formal functions, and their stackability means easy transport to other areas of the club for more casual activities. Plus, its deeper sitting width and depth keeps it in high demand for clubs throughout America.

New Merrimac Chairs at the University of Georgia

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.

Longmeadow Country Club Enjoys Council Room Chairs and Jenkins Barstools

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!

Lake Geneva Eustis Chairs

Lake Geneva Country Club Receives Almost 300 Merrimac Chairs

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.

Council Room Arm Chairs Arrive for Richland Country Club

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.

Nautical Virginian and Jenkins Chairs for the Corinthian Yacht Club

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!


Lawrenceville School Abbott Hall with Eustis Chairs

Custom Chairs for The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey

The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey has just unveiled their redesigned Abbott Dining Hall, complete with over three hundred custom Eustis chairs. As one of the oldest private high schools in the country, Lawrenceville is also ranked amongst the most prestigious and rigorous for their longstanding traditions of excellence. We worked closely with the school and architecture firm Voith & McTavish to develop custom-made Lawrenceville chairs for the Abbott room. The administrators in charge of the project were especially passionate about honoring Lawrenceville's heritage, with multiple design elements that mirror the styles found across their 700 acre campus. 

In particular, the designers for Lawrenceville were pleased to find we could build stackable hardwood chairs for their grand project. Using some of our earlier Gothic chairs as inspiration, we created the new Lawrenceville chair model, distinct from its predecessors like the Taft and Burton Judson with its stunning motif. The back of the chair includes laser engraving on the top rail and defined slats that run downwards to the comfortable seat. The Lawrenceville chairs partner elegantly with the overall space, which the headmaster has called "a treasure for Lawrenceville" that will be an integral piece of the school's illustrious history.
