    Hello, all!

    My school is looking to purchase new seats for our theatre.  For many years (I've been here 23) we have had a stock of replacement seats for when some of them wore out, but that stock has been depleted and we have some seats in bad disrepair.  So, it is time to start a new!

    I am looking for recommendations for where to purchase said seats based on any experience some of you may have had.  I'd like to keep somewhat local - we are located in NW Indiana (very close to Chicago)- if at all possible.

    Here are what my principal gave me as guidelines:
    foldable arm desks
    easy to clean - hard to vandalize
    dark navy as a color
    possibility for donation plaques
    some aisle lighting

    If this is something you have been in on the purchase of and loved the company you worked with, please help a lady out??

    Irwin Seating is another manufacturer.  Just contact the manufacturer directly and they will refer you to a local distributor, installer, contractor.
