The sturdy Carole Side Chair was designed with durability in mind, and the popular ladderback styled slats are curved to mold to your body. These hand sanded European Beech Hardwood chairs are glued, pinned, and screwed with corner blocks added under the seat 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 Carole 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.
