Tappan Chairs is Celebrating its Bicentennial!

For the entire year of 2019, we are donating 10% of retail sales to local nonprofits, including the Sandwich Historical Society, Sandwich Home Industries, and Sandwich Children's Center in order to honor the "History, Heritage, and Future" of what we are today. We welcome other local businesses to join us in this giving campaign this year!  Stay abreast of our latest and evolving activities and events this year...follow and join us as we commemorate 200 years of chairmaking in Sandwich, NH.        

On February 5, 2019, past and present Tappan Chairmakers Gunnar Berg (l) and Adam Nudd-Homeyer (r) met with NH Governor Chris Sununu to receive a proclamation celebrating Tappan Chairs bicentennial! Read more and see more pictures from the meeting in our latest press release. Our deepest thanks go to the Governor for this honor, and the opportunity to meet with him and share our story.
