This company, based in Chicago (like most barber chair companies), has a strong background in building high quality barber chairs.
As you might know, reclining barber chairs came on the scene during the early 1880s. The Louis Hanson company was one of the first companies to start building and selling barber chairs. During the late Victorian era and on into the early 1900s, highly decorative oak and walnut in combination with fancy cast-iron barber chairs were found in the most prestigious barber shops.
Today we don’t have many records about the Louis Hanson Company, its long days of manufacturing chairs are gone, but we can still find lots of antique Hanson barber chairs for sale, with the finest quality.
