About 1892

Pay no attention to those people behind
the curtain.

1892 is focused on the artwork.

The 1892 Chairs staff are graphic experts. We’re focused on making your custom director’s chair order a bit less complicated than the traditional ordering process. We don’t want you to worry about file types or artwork prep – that’s why you’re asking an expert, right?

Upload your art or choose from one of our original designs, and we’ll make sure you’re getting a high-quality chair that can follow you to your next adventure, class up your home, or expand your brand.

The OG Folding Chair

A lot of good things came out of the year 1892. We just happened to like the chairs the best.

Our team is design-forward and
quality minded, and that’s why we exclusively use the original manufacturer of the director’s chairs, Gold Medal. Manufactured and printed 100% in the United States, these chairs have been a classic at events, on the field, and in the home of thousands of Americans since their first showing at the 1892 Chicago World Fair. Sure, there’s cheaper versions out there,
but why go with the imitation when the original can last you a lifetime?

Expect good things.

1892’s chair designs are created in-house by our graphic designers, and your completely custom designs receive the same attention to detail that we put into our own.

The chairs are made from solid American Beech wood that has excellent durability and longevity, and printing oversight for the canvas is done by real people to ensure a clean finish. Any time you need assistance, you’ll talk to someone who can help you directly with the artwork or the nitty gritty details of the order – no corporate runaround, just good ol’ fashioned service.

Happy people, happy products.

Everyone’s a VIP when they order with us.
