2nd Annual East Coasters’ Favorite Things
The tree has been strung with lights all aglow, and we at East Coast Chair & Barstool are eagerly awaiting Santa’s ho ho ho! Last year, one of our very first blog articles featured our staff’s favorite things for this festive season. Because it was such a hit and we’re all in the holiday spirit once again, we thought we should share our new list of hot items and must haves. I’ve polled the elves, and here are their votes for 2012’s favorite furniture offerings.
SOLID WOOD TABLE TOPS
After moving into our new office and warehouse space in October, we’ve been able to expand our in-house production line to include solid wood table tops. We’re all very excited about these! Made by our on-staff Amish craftsmen, our table tops use either red oak (shown) or beech solid wood and can be stained in four standard colors (natural, cherry, walnut, mahogany) or custom stained per request. Traditional and elegant, these solid wood table tops offer a natural beauty that cannot be denied.
We keep our production team busy, busy, busy, because when they’re not making table tops or assembling our chairs and bar stools, they are building and stocking our restaurant booths. These Amish-made booths come in singles or doubles, standard black or wine vinyl or a plethora of choice vinyl colors by Naugahyde, with or without crumb strips, with or without wooden trim, and with smooth backs or multi-channel seaming. With lots of options that all look amazing, these booths are commercial grade and use quality parts and materials. Plus, they also offer a comfy place to sit!
STELLA OUTDOOR CHAIR
One of our staff members is admittedly nearly obsessed with the next item on our favorite things list! Our Stella chair which was introduced in the springtime features an aluminum frame and plastic wicker weaving that shows off a star-shaped pattern. Great for outdoor restaurants and cafes, this chair is also lightweight and easy to carry from our staff’s back porch to her backyard campfire.
STEEL CITY COLLECTION
Last fall, we launched our Steel City Collection of restaurant chairs and bar stools that combine the warm look of wood with the trendy, chic look of metal. A few of the East Coasters have Steel City bar stools in their homes, but our customers have really made this one of our most popular lines for bars, restaurants, and even church cafes!
NATURAL RESIN TABLE TOPS
In addition to our solid wood table tops, we carry in-house laminate tables as well as these resin coated table tops. Designed to look like real wood, these glossy finished resin tops are a beautiful addition to any restaurant table — and at low prices every day, they are a beauty for your budget, too. Although one of the elves here recommends the natural color, our resin tops also come in walnut, mahogany, or cherry finishes.
BLACK BANQUET STACK CHAIR w/ GOLD DOT
Hurry! If you like this banquet stack chair as much as one of our elves does, you’ll want to act fast, because it is a closeout item right now! The clearance sales price will make you happy, but once our inventory is gone, this chair will not be available. With black fabric that features a gold dot pattern, this padded chair has many purposes and stacks easily for storage.
RED RETRO BAR STOOL w/ DOUBLE CHROME BASE
Now that I, myself, have been at East Coast Chair & Barstool for over a year, I’ve had plenty of time to think up what my favorite item would be for this year’s list. Just like my coworkers, I had a hard time deciding on just one product, but this red retro bar stool with double chrome base definitely tops my list. I think it’s fun and funky, and the cherry red is a bright color that demands attention. And I like that about this stool. While it has a certain ‘tude in the throwback style, I think it would also work well in a myriad of designs. Mixing a little retro flare in a contemporary space is never a bad thing, in my opinion!
Now we’ve come to the most exciting item on our list: a sneak peek for a new 2013 item! One of our owners is so excited about a new line we’ll be launching this spring, that when I asked him what his favorite item was, he couldn’t keep it a secret any longer! We have yet to finalize the design or give it a name, but this aluminum and industrial styled chair will be joining our product line up soon!
Whether you’re celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah or not celebrating at all, we wish you a happy holiday season filled with all of your favorite things!
