The Novato is an adaptation of our popular Fairfield chair. A West Coast client needed to bring down the cost, so we eliminated the curve in the lower back slats. This gave it a more traditional Arts & Crafts look, particularly when done in Quatersawn White Oak, with next to no sacrifice in comfort. This design is an entry-level Eustis Chair for clients who hope to purchase as many chairs as possible with tighter budgets. The Novato chair has a traditional look that belies its excellent durability, as it will last for years in even the most demanding library environments.
