  • New Year, Better Quality

    The NewYear is the perfect time to hit the reset button on our lives. It is a time for clearing out the old and making way for the new opportunities that await us. This is the time that many people around the world are making resolutions of change in hopes of working on making their lives better. At Dixie Seating Company, we don’t believe in making resolutions but rather making solid commitments and goals. We have always carried a strong commitment to providing top-notch quality products and service, but in 2016 we are making it a goal to further that commitment by further improving on our products.

    New Woven Seat

    Over the last few months we have been hard at work developing a better technique for manufacturing our woven seats for products like our No. 7 series of Boone Ladderback Chairs and Barstools or the No. 2 series of Elizabeth Chairs and Barstools. In developing a better woven seat, we also discovered that we could improve on the frame to provide better support for the seat and an updated look that we know you are going to love. We are excited to introduce our new line of products featuring this new and improved seat as well as the updated frame.

    These seats and frames can be found in the No. 2, No. 7, No. 33, No. 4 and the No. 12 series of dining chairs, counterstools and barstools. In planning for a better design we have also improved the quality of the structure itself. The foundation of the seat now features a solid piece of Medium Density Fiber Board (MDF). This piece of MDF provides enhanced support to the entire seat extending the life of the product as a whole.

     

    New Seat MDF Frame The woven seats have an updated foundation of a Medium Density Fiberboard. This creates a stronger structure for the seat.

    Around the MDF foundation we have replaced the weaving portion of the seat from a sea-grass  to a two-tone twisted kraft paper. The two-toned paper fiber is a continuously twisted sheet (3 pieces twisted together) making a stronger and tighter weave throughout the seat and also creating a multi-dimensional style to the look of the seat.

    As Maya Angelou once said, “If you don’t like something, change it!.” We weren’t loving our old woven seats and felt we could do better, so we worked hard to figure out a better design. It is important to always be changing and growing. Change can be a good thing and our new seats are full of new updates that we are proud to introduce to our customers.
