For sale: Four dining chairs (two arm chairs and two side chairs) and a matching bench, all constructed of solid North American birch by Dinec, a Canadian furniture manufacturer. As with all Dinec pieces, these chairs were custom made. This particular model of chair has been discontinued by Dinec. They were from the "Pure Expression" collection, models 5440 (side chair) and 5441 (arm chair). The birch has the "light cherry" stained finish, and the cushioned seats have a deep red faux-leather covering with some nice visual interest to it. The shade of the red is fantastic: it makes a solid statement, but it isn't bright or ostentatious. All pieces are in excellent condition, and everyone who sits in them remarks on how comfortable they are. Dimensions: Chairs: Height 38", seat height 18", arm chairs are 25" wide (outsides of the arms) Bench: 13 1/2" deep x 41" wide x 18" seat height Although this model has been discontinued, the model Dinec currently sells that is most similar to these is 5780 (side chair) and 5781 (arm chair). I obtained a quote for them from a furniture store in Portland, Oregon: $540 for each side chair and $645 for each arm chair. The bench would be about another $400, bringing the total to around $2800. I'm asking $750 for the four chairs and bench. [Side note: I used these chairs with a very unique Maitland-Smith dining table (mahogany with inlaid flagstone), which I am also offering on Craigslist. The chairs and table make a very striking pairing.] About Dinec: Since 1991, Dinec has been synonymous with luxury and diversity in the wood furniture industry. As a Canadian designer and manufacturer, it favors solid North American birch in its creations. The natural beauty of this variety of wood adds warmth, richness, elegance and distinctive character to your home.
