Nicole Hall is a Design Team Leader at Waldners. Nicole’s favorite piece of furniture is the Less than 5 Chair by Steelcase. This chair is available in six different standard finished and can be stacked up to four chairs high for convenient storage. Nicole likes this chair because you can put your own stamp on this solution like the Waldner’s logo. She also loves it because it weighs less than 5 lbs and can come in an ombre finish.
