About Us

Here’s where we lay our cards on the table. 

Grand Rapids Chair Company is America’s leading provider of chairs and tables for commercial environments: restaurants, hotels, hospitals, medical offices, corporations, arenas, banks, casinos, churches, cruise ships, malls, stadiums, theaters – and anywhere else hospitality is extended to guests.

We make a wide range of chairs and barstools in wood, metal and aluminum styles, plus steel-base tables with a tremendous variety of surface and edge options. Our customers are concentrated in North America, South America and the Caribbean Islands, but we serve a worldwide clientele – including McDonald’s® franchises, which have made our Melissa Series of chairs (and the line’s nesting variations, Emma and Liz), into fast-food icons.

All in the Family

Grand Rapids Chair is a family-owned business that started in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1997. The company was founded by Dave Miller, a former executive with fine furniture-maker John Widdicomb, Inc. Dave still heads the company and has been joined by several of his family members – and a whole lot of additional employees who’ve become family. Currently, we employ more than 110 people and maintain 150,000-sq. ft. of manufacturing and administrative space.

The Wow Factor

We are renowned for our quality and our custom capabilities – no other manufacturer can deliver one-of-a-kind designs as quickly as we can. We offer more choices. More flexibility to handle special requests. More ability to customize standard product. We can personalize your furniture with custom laser cuts or engravings. Heck, we’ll even let you design your own chair.

Whatever you select, you can count on superior craftsmanship, comfort, durability and value. Plus, the kind of responsive service you can only get from a family company. So go ahead – let your imagination go wild!

Made Here

While our competition imports more and more finished product from overseas, we continue to build tables and chairs right here in our own Grand Rapids, Michigan, factory, using the best mix of both domestic and imported parts to ensure the highest quality.

Building Green

We are also committed to sustainability. We purchase steel from mills that utilize scrap metal to make their final products, source wood only from certified renewable forests, use a water-based wood finishing system, and much more. You can read all about it in our environmental brochure.
