Solid Oak Church Pews For St. Malachy Church, Manhattan

16 Nov 2012

Posted by Joseph Coupal

Father Richard Baker at St. Malachy Church in Manhattan had contacted Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations to assist him with the renovation of his church.  As part of this renovation, he wanted to improve the comfort of his church pews and improve the "sight lines" to the altar.   

We met with him numerous times and worked out a new floor plan design that included our most comfortable, all solid oak church pews.   This included a contoured seat that adds significant comfort and also has the durability of solid oak.
 
To help his parishioners to better to see the altar area for various services in the church, Egan’s recommended using "mitered pews" which would eliminate most of the "obstructed view seats" which parishioners had complained about.  The angle of the pews was chosen individually in order to work around the large support columns which had caused the obstructed views.
 
Father Baker commented "the parishioners are quite impressed with how much more comfortable the new pews are."
 
For the greatest durability, Egan's Church Furnishings and Restorations features all solid oak construction for our church pews.  No veneer finishes.  No particleboard.   All Solid oak construction is recommended by the AWI (Architectural Woodwork Institute) as the best choice in materials.
 
Free onsite consultations and quotes provided.  Free assistance with floor plan layouts are also available.
