Your church has made the decision to purchase new church chairs. There will now be a variety of choices your church will need to process for these new chairs such as bookracks or no bookracks, card and pencil holders or not, width of chairs, choice of frame finish for your chairs, and other available options. But perhaps no decision will be more important from a decor perspective than the fabric you choose for your church chairs. Let‘s talk about the fabric options available for church‘s chairs.
A point often forgotten when purchasing chairs is restoration, as few surviving examples would not have been repaired at some stage. When purchasing chairs, it is not unusual to spend more money with a good restorer than you actually paid for the article itself. The repair of a chair, the most used object in the home, is expensive when compared to, say, a chest of drawers. If restored properly, a chest of drawers may need serious attention only once every 50 or so years, where a set of chairs may need attention on a frequent basis. Sets of chairs that are let go for generations often need a lot of attention, even to a point of needing to be steamed apart and re-glued which takes time and patience. A single chair often consumes more time than for a dining table. Even now in our local area, it is not easy to find a competent tradesman to repair sets of chairs, as they all look upon them as ‘charity‘ jobs.
There is though one more significant choice for your church to consider for your new chairs. Fabric mills across the country produce hundreds, even thousands, of additional fabrics each year. Most of these can be chosen for your new chairs. However, if your church chooses a fabric from outside the fabric collections the church chair manufacturer carries, your cost will likely climb significantly and likely also the lead times needed for the production of your chairs will be far greater. This process is often called "COM" which stands for "Customer‘s Own Material".
