Thanks for your input about the new chairs. There is always a balance between comfort, price and durability. We have tested a lot of chairs over the years. Our maroon cushioned chairs were falling apart and very dirty and we were unable to repair or clean them. We made the decision to replace them. Over the next year we are going to continue to review the furnishings in the Learning Commons and may make additional changes that will result in the addition of flexible furnishings and perhaps a few different designs of chairs.
