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!
