For three generations, Standard Chair has been dedicated to producing chairs of uncompromising and unequalled quality. These chairs are crafted of solid maple hardwoods that have been kiln-dried. No veneers or other woods are used. All parts are finely hand-sanded, stained and lacquered. At the top of the chair, there is a steam-bent crown that is designed to show off the Darden seal and one-of-a-kind personalization. It also provides a comfortable support for the upper back. A handsome scroll adorns the top of the crown.
The turning tenons, which are at the ends of spindles and legs, have been compressed so that when inserted into the seat holes, the turnings expand and create joints which are strong and long-lasting. The seats themselves are all scooped for comfort and, for added comfort, especially at a desk, the seats are deeply saddled as well.
From the scroll behind the crown to the careful gold beading of the turnings to the finely engraved lines on the crown, the chairs are truly American craftsmanship at its best. The result is a work of unique and lasting beauty. The perfect way to honor your achievement at Darden. A work of heirloom quality.
In addition to chairs, we have available the Boston Rocker and Heritage Lamp. Photos:
