Part of our Orphanage series of repurposed chairs. The school chairs are a reinterpretation of the standard tube chair made in Western Ontario and ubiquitous for the past 6o years in church basements and factory cafeterias. We saved a batch from a defunct felt factory which were in very poor condition. With the addition of wood reinforcements and other elements we've given them new life for a new setting. The scratches in the paint expose the metal and show its history of useful tenure, marks of character that add charm to the piece. We have reinforced the frame with the application of solid wood braces as new legs. Some of the chairs have been instilled with a new vibrancy with powder coating.
