2017 Year In Review, Our Top 10 Installs

2017 had us asking the questions “will we ever get sick of ‘millennial pink’?” and “how many neon signs is too many?”, “is the industrial trend ever going to fade?”, and while we’re predicting some major shifts in restaurant design trends for 2018, we’re also excited to celebrate the amazing spaces created throughout the past year that are vibrant, functional, and obviously showcase our products.

For us here at Grand Rapids Chair Company, we kicked the year off by working on a custom product collaboration with our friends at Chipotle, and finished it off with our exclusive partnership with Dowel Jones, and the launch of our new modern wood restaurant chair, Brooke.

As much as we love launching new products, seeing those products find homes in independent restaurants, chains, and food halls all over North America makes us even happier. So in the spirit of sharing, here is a roundup of our favorite installations of 2017.
