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
is 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.
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.
Continuous Coil Seat Suspension:
The chair cushion is securely positioned on a 9-gauge tight loop sinuous coil
seat suspension, creating an extremely comfortable sit as well as superior seat
support and longevity.
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.
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.
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 sag over the extended life of the dining chair.
