The Greensboro Chair pays homage to those Greensboro sit ins that ended on July 25, 1960. It represents the men and women who by choosing to sit down, stood up for so much. Made from bold walnut, this piece uses a series of interlocking joinery techniques to create a robust visual, mirroring the accord of those involved in the event. Whether utilized as an everyday chair or a decorative piece, The Greensboro Chair depicts solidity through detailed structure, illustrating that by sitting down, 4 black freshmen were able to lift a nation.


A percentage of profits will be donated to local Greensboro charities. 


Each chair is hand crafted and custom made to order. Production lead times are between 14-18 weeks.
