At A Glance: A modern interpretation of the classic elementary school chair, featuring a bent-ply seat and back which are fastened to the frame with rubber gaskets that provide durability and an industrial aesthetic. Black legs with your choice of Walnut or Oak veneer.
What's To Like:
The School Chair fits in well with the modern industrial or minimalist aesthetic. Concrete floors, exposed metal beams, huge glass windows ... and black powder coated legs.
The contours to which the School Chair's back and seat are bent lend seated comfort, in addition to the back's slight angle.
What's Not to Like: Aesthetically speaking, you'll find a lot to like - and a lot to dislike, depending on your stylistic preference. We'll stick with the "like" and let you come up with the "dislike" since beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Is that a cop-out? We sure hope not.
