Our 761 Story
One time, we had a customer that came and picked up his six 761 chairs and loaded it in the back of his pickup truck. He was driving down Highway 2, in Alberta, when a gust of wind picked up the boxes out of the back of his truck and the boxes went flying down the highway. The chairs came out of the boxes and tumbled down the road. He brought back the chairs, and there were noticeable road rashes on the chair, but structurally the chair never moved.
The customer was so pleasantly surprised with how the chairs stayed together after an aggressive tumble down the highway. The reason our chairs are sturdy as could be is simply because of the way they are built. Our chairs have Morison tenons that bring strength to your chair that you will not find in many other chairs. There are four stretchers along the bottom of these chairs to ensure the lifelong stability of your chair.
