The sturdy Campus 2 Position chair is designed with durability in mind, as the sled base stabilizes the chair in two positions with comfort and safety in either position. 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 attached PDF sheet). The Campus chair was designed to withstand constant use, so it is ideal for dining areas, study areas, classrooms, conference rooms, and cafeterias. These durable chairs are great for dormitories, transitional living facilities, shelters, schools, group homes, and any other heavy use setting.
