Chairs seem to be one of the least likely types of furniture to survive, when you hear stories like, "one chair broke and granny threw it down the well years ago", or "when the leg broke we used it for fire wood". When it comes to restoring a chair, people object to the price, saying "it‘s too much", or "it‘s not worth it!" There must have been more chairs manufactured than any other item, as they were usually purchased in at least a set of four, yet few examples survive. Quite often, old chairs had very harsh repairs carried out on them: large screws for strengthening joints; steel straps nailed to the legs and side rails, often on the polished faces; large wood blocks glued in or large hunks of wood nailed on for extra strength; and the odd nail that often looks more like a railway spike - all of this plus a good slurp of glue just for luck. A lot of this type of damage, under many layers of upholstery, hides a surprise for the restorer. Trying to get a chair like this apart, repaired and re-glued is a nightmare. Very few chairs have escaped without some type of makeshift or bandaid repair. Full sets of chairs are scarce, and one must accept the concept of a harlequin set or a mixture of complementing chairs to fulfill one‘s chair requirements.
In essence, your church as the customer, is providing your own fabric to the chair manufacturer. The manufacturer will let your church know how many yards of fabric they need per chair. If there are design patterns in the fabric your church has chosen, that amount of yardage may increase to allow the chairs to all be manufactured with the same "repeats" on your chairs. There are a great number of very attractive and unique fabrics available from these fabric mills, but again, be prepared for extra cost and far longer lead times if you choose the COM route for your church.
Outdoor Chairs, or sometimes called beach chairs are great! It is my personal opinion that there is nothing finer than sitting on the back porch or deck on a warm summer night talking with friends. And, the right chair makes all the difference. One that we like is the traditional Adirondack style chair. It is designed for pure outdoor, laid back comfort. These chairs are almost made exclusively of either teak or eucalyptus wood and can be painted or treated with wood oil. Our favorite is the non-painted version as the older the wood gets the better it looks.
