Very Good & Proper

Canteen Utility Chair / Upholstered



The Canteen Utility Chair comes with a Graphite coloured frame as standard, with the seat upholstered in a choice of fabrics and leathers.

The design is inspired by the classic post-war British school chair. The simple, light-weight and stackable design retains the look and feel of the original, whilst simultaneously updating both the aesthetic and production methods.

The precision bent tubular steel frame is a continuous piece and free from unsightly welds. The frame combines with an upholstered 12mm thick plywood seat and plywood back to create a visually light, yet robust design.
