Learn How We Manufacture the Highest Quality Wooden Chairs
The type of wood matters
Holsag wooden chairs are made exclusively from 100% European Beech Hardwood. Using a hardwood like beech, rather than a softwood like pine, makes a huge difference in the durability of the chair frame. The components of European Beech are thick and strong, creating a frame that will stand up to years of hard use and wear and tear.
Joints are key
We use mortise and tenon joints which are glued, pinned, and screwed into the frame to create a chair that will not creek and wobble. Corner blocks are added under the seats for extra strength.
The finish must be durable
All Holsag chairs are hand-sanded, including between the back rungs and along the stretchers. The color stain is hand-wiped into the wood for an even color distribution throughout the frame. The stain is then covered with a durable, catalyzed lacquer that resists cracking, scratching, and chipping.
In addition, all Holsag chairs now feature an antimicrobial finish to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, mold, and mildew. This makes Holsag seating the safest wooden furniture on the market amid COVID-19. Learn more.
Limitless customization options
Holsag provides a full custom color matching service and the available stain options span the rainbow. We can duplicate any color to precision on our chair frames. In addition, we have an in-house upholstery shop that provides flexible options when choosing fabrics and vinyl for our chairs.
