Starky’s Authentic Americana Restaurant in Bozeman, Montana commissioned this built-in bench and booth seating in early 2010 for their new location.

CommaQ Architecture designed the new restaurant after the original Starky’s Restaurant on Bozeman’s East Main Street was destroyed in a natural gas explosion in March 2009.

The seating is built to the toughest standards with glued & doweled solid wood construction, steel seat springs and vinyl upholstery.

During the initial design phase, we worked in consultation with Tina Ortman of Sturdy Stitching Upholstery in Bozeman to create a prototype for approval by the client.

Following final approval of the prototype, construction was completed in our Livingston studios.

Installation was arranged and scheduled to integrate smoothly with the other sub-contractors involved in preparing the restaurant for its Grand Opening.

Please Note that we are no longer doing this type of commercial work – neither building the frames nor re-upholstering them. For reupholstery of restaurant seats we recommend that you contact Sturdy Stitching Upholstery of Bozeman.

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
