Handcrafted Ladderback Chairs, Bar Stools, Pub Chairs, Footstools and more. Made in the USA since 1938.

You have just arrived at your best source for handcrafted fine quality ladder back chairs and barstools.

If you're looking for ladderback chairs, bar stools or footstools you have found a true family owned American company. We have been hand-crafting high quality ladderback chairs since 1938. Our factory and showrooms are located in Gardner, Massachusetts formerly known as "The Chair City", and now called "The Furniture Capital of New England". Gardner has a long history of chair making and has been nicknamed The Chair City for decades. We handcraft each chair or stool the same way our fathers did when they founded the company.

Please call with any questions about our products or shipping charges. We do our best to find you the most reasonable price on shipping of our chairs. We can help with stain choices, shipping quotes, turnaround times, product questions, etc. We are happy to speak with you, customer service is our top priority. We are here to take your calls M-F, 9am 4pm Eastern time, and Saturdays from 930am 330pm. Our Phone #'s Are 978-632-1120 or TOLL FREE 866-233-4556.

We take pride in the product we make. We use northern yellow birch hardwoods - best for matching your maple, cherry or walnut tables. No Veneers. Each ladderback chair and bar stool has a tightly handwoven fiber rush seat and steam bent back posts and slats for comfort, and we have stain choices that match the most popular table colors. The fiber rush seat has a protective finish that makes it last for years. Quality and craftsmanship are evident in every piece we make. Our chairs are comfortable and durable, built to last generations...we make tomorrow's antiques!

Each piece is completely MADE IN THE USA and built to last a lifetime. We have been crafting our chairs for three generations...each piece one at a time, using the same time honored techniques and skills handed down from generation to generation.

Our ladderback chairs and footstools make great gift ideas - wedding presents, graduation gifts, recognition gifts etc. We have many styles and colors in stock which can be shipped as soon as you order them! Others are made to order and usually ready for shipping well within a month's time. Please let us know if your order is needed for a holiday or special occasion and we will tell you if it can be completed & shipped in time, and do our best to accommodate your needs.

We are pleased to announce any of our chairs or stools can be ordered in BLACK or WORN BLACK for an additional $25.00 each, or, for the same $25.00 we will use your stain (see our return policy for disclaimer). Also, any chair or bar stool can be ordered unfinished at a 10% discount.
