“Invariably the task of designing a chair becomes a distillation. The chair is the boiled down essence of the architect's instincts, beliefs and meaning.”

Museum & Library Furniture LLC inhabits its own niche. M&LF is a source where cultural institutions find quality seating and furniture items specifically created for educational programs, exhibits, and public spaces.

M&LF sells THE MUSEUM STOOL®, a carry-around intended for use with educational programs in art museums. Available through on-line purchases for more than two decades, the award-winning product is in constant use in an ever-expanding list of collections like Cranbrook Museum, Smithsonian, Morgan Library, San Francisco Asian Art Museum, Center for Civil and Human Rights, Doris Duke Foundation, and dozens of others.

M&LF has gained its reputation for excellence among directors and educators who must make important decisions how best to equip galleries and public spaces. Crafted in exquisite American hardwood, the M&LF line of interrelated bench seating items is designed and built to be beautifully subtle, comfortable and durable.

With special regard for the Americans with Disabilities Act, Universal Design, and every conceivable aspect of accessibility and psychological comfort, M&LF works to constantly review, test and improve its products.
