Are you sitting down?
Usually that question is the precursor to bad news, but this time it’s good. If you’re not happy with the chair you’re sitting on, The Chair Market will solve your problem. The Chair Market in Brooklyn not only builds commercial chairs and banquette seating, it has hundreds if not thousands of styles for kitchens and dining rooms, including counter stools, that you can look at and try out. Order with your choice of fabric and finishes.
You spend a lot of time sitting on the chairs in your dining room and kitchen. You want them to be comfortable, attractive and sturdy. A large part of The Chair Market’s business is building chairs for restaurants, hotels, synagogues and catering halls, so they are made to last. “Our chairs are built differently; you’re getting commercial grade for residential use,” said Marketing Director Jacob Merel. “Our chairs don’t break, and don’t become loose or shaky like others do over time.” It’s a triple win: the sturdiness of commercial furniture, custom styling and wholesale prices. Decorators have access to exclusive styles and pricing. Merel said their customers include a pizza shop and the Ritz-Carlton hotel. “We have a style for everyone and a price for every budget.”
You can save on delivery by picking up the chairs yourself. Get one at a time if you don’t mind the round trips. If you have a minivan, the staff is happy to load it; they can usually fit at least six chairs. Or get the white-glove treatment by having your custom-made chairs delivered. While delivery costs have risen with the crazy increase in prices we’ve been seeing, you’ll still save money. The Chair Market recently opened a branch in Florida. Smart shoppers figured out that the cost of shipping is worth getting custom-made chairs from the Brooklyn factory. Snowbirds order for their northeast and Florida homes. Merel said they have sold to hotels in Alaska, down the block and everywhere in between.
