October 16, 2016Harvard Business School purchased 200 Merrimac stacking chairs for their Faculty Club in 2004. The faculty loved the comfort, the staff loved the lightweight, stacking feature of our chairs.
10 years later, as the school needed to expand their Executive Education facility, the Faculty Club in Kresge Hall was demolished to make room for the new, state of the art Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Center, designed by Goody Clancy, and the chairs were moved to the campus's temporary Executive Education dining facility called Crimson Commons while the new Chao Center was under construction.
When the Chao Center was complete this past June, the original Merrimac chairs, with their 20 year warranty, were refinished and re-upholstered, ready for their third career in the new dining area. Thanks to our patented Eustis Joint® construction, Eustis chairs are truly made to meet the test of time!
