The Parlor Stool is a tall (44.25”) chair with a back and single left arm. It’s designed to help mourners, particularly the elderly, more easily receive the condolences of attendees at visitations. The stool is a new product for funeral directors to consider getting for their funeral homes.
Mourners in receiving lines can get tired standing for long periods of time. Rather than sitting on an average-height chair, putting the mourner lower than visitors, the parlor stool allows them to stand with support or sit comfortably and gracefully receive hugs. The single arm helps prop up a person without boxing him or her into the seat.
The Parlor Chair is produced by Holsag Canada and distributed by The Dodge Company.
In this video recorded at the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) convention and expo, Tim Collison, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Dodge discusses and demonstrates the flexibility of this well-designed chair.
