Chair-ity: Sit for a Cause:
We are pleased to announce Chair-ity: Sit for a Cause. We are creating custom chairs with other industry partners that will be auctioned off on an on going basis. Everything from frame to fabric has been donated. 100% of the monies raised will go directly to the charity for which each chair was designed and hand built.
These elegant chairs are custom built by Covers Unlimited with Carnegie Fabrics. The high quality piece is made with kiln dried poplar hardwood sourced from sustainable forests and durable commercial grade suspensions and foams. All materials and labor have been donated, and every penny raised will go directly to the designated Chair-ity!
