Combined Finishes

Cherner Chair seat products may be ordered with a combination of any of our standard finishes. Walnut and Ebony products come with a "Classic Walnut" seat and "Ebony Lacquer" arms and legs. The Ebony and Beech combination is composed of an "Ebony Lacquer" seat with "Natural Beech" arms and legs. Please feel free to call us if you are interested in some other combination not shown on our website.

"Natural" Walnut vs. "Classic" Walnut

"Natural" walnut products have only a clear finish applied. The lighter beech core and darker walnut face veneer are brought into vivid contrast. Products with a "Classic" walnut finish have a stain applied to both the beech core and the face veneer which gives the products a uniform walnut color (very little contrast in color between the beech core and the walnut veneer).



Cherner seating products can be ordered with seat pads or seat and back pads. Pads are comprised of molded plywood forms padded with 3/4" of foam and wrapped with one of the following options: customer's own material (COM), Maharam Fabric, or Spinneybeck leather.

Seat pads must be installed at the factory and must be ordered at the same time as chairs or stools. Seat pads cannot be purchased separately or installed on previously purchased chairs.
