The sturdy Arthur Arm Chair was designed with durability in mind. These hand sanded European Beech Hardwood chairs are glued, pinned, and screwed with corner blocks added under the seats to insure a sturdy assembly, and the hand wiped stains are covered with a durable catalyzed lacquer that resists cracking and chipping. They are available in a large variety of stains and fabrics(see PDF data sheet). The Arthur chair was designed to withstand constant use, so it is ideal for dining areas, study areas, and conference rooms. These durable chairs are great for dormitories, transitional living facilities, shelters, schools, group homes, and any other heavy use setting.
