All Hekman dining chairs, stools, benches, and settees are bench-made one at a time in the USA, touched by the many skilled hands of talented craftsmen during all stages of construction. For over 90 years, this history of skillful expertise has been combined with innovative, green processes to build every Hekman chair to last for years using the highest quality standards. Creating your dream furniture has never been easier with the numerous ways one can customize our upholstered furniture. Our wood finishes, nail head options, and extensive range of standard and performance fabrics to choose from are perfect for creating the exact look you’re searching for without compromising on any important design elements.
Firm Interior Back Support: A strong, synthetic fabric interior back, attached firmly to the interior frame, delivers maximum support and a smooth, contoured inside upholstered back.
Comfortable Continuous Coil Seat Suspension: The chair cushion is securely positioned on a 9-gauge tight loop sinuous coil seat suspension, creating an extremely comfortable seat as well as superior seat support and longevity.
Reinforced Seat Frame Assembly: Seat frames are assembled with opposing grain layers of kiln-dried hardwoods, positioned together for ideal seat frame thickness, then glued together to deliver uncompromising seat durability and strength.
Durable Leg Construction: Leg corners are constructed with opposing grain layers of 15-ply kiln-dried hardwoods glued and secured by 16-gauge steel fasteners. Anchor bolts with locking nuts firmly attached to each front leg create exceptional leg stability, strength, and safety.
Quiet Seat Coil Connection Inserts: The sinuous coil seat suspension is connected to the seat frame with quiet connection inserts that eliminate squeaks when the chair is in use and prohibits corner sagging over the extended life of the dining chair.
Memory Return: Swivel stool seats offer ease of use when sitting and automatically return to the front-facing position without constant readjusting.
