About Gold Medal Chairs

The Original Director’s Chair – Since 1892
Since 1892, the Gold Medal Directors Chair has been the standard of style and quality in casual furniture. Through the years, many other companies have tried to emulate the design of the Gold Medal Directors Chair. Some companies have even tried to lay claim to being the first directors chair. However, the Gold Medal Classic Directors Chair remains the standard for directors chair quality and design. The distinctive features of the American-Made Gold Medal Classic series, including the contoured leg design and shaped arm pads, have not changed through 118 years of manufacturing. We regularly receive requests for replacement canvas sets for chairs made in the first half of last century. The Gold Medal Classic Directors Chair is truly a treasured piece of American furniture that has provided comfortable seating for well over a century.
