Pews

Church Pews

After seven decades building and installing solid wood pews for protestant and evangelical churches, we have a very good understanding of your needs. One of the unique features all Sauder pews have is an exclusive contoured seat—instead of the typical flat board—to give noticeably superior comfort. Because you are individual in your needs, Sauder doesn't make a one-size-fits-all pew. It is customized for you. We offer a full range of pew body styles, ends, accessories, finishes, and fabrics to suit every need and taste. The Sauder 25-year warranty is your assurance of lasting value.

Definity Church Pews


Definity™ seating does what its name implies—it defines an individual space and as a result provides the maximum comfort in spacing on pews. People naturally try to put distance between themselves when filling in a standard pew. Definity™ helps bring people together—comfortably. Here are some of the main benefits and features when you choose our exclusive Definity pew:
  • Predictably maximizes your seating capacity
  • Fits all Sauder pew styles and pew end designs
  • Available with wooden dividers if desired
  • Optimum use of your seating space without confining people with armrests
  • Seats can be numbered for special events
  • Ushers can easily see how many seats are available
  • Removable cushions make cleanup and re-upholstery a snap
  • Allows for more fabric options than standard pews
