Do you run a restaurant, hotel or café? Or do you regularly organise big events? Then you know for a fact that buying stackable chairs requires a lot of thinking and deliberation. A solid stacking chair may not always have the right appearance, and a nice stackable chair may turn out to be the wrong choice in actual practice. What exactly should you watch out for? Find out about that here!
Stackable chairs: the importance of the frame
Wooden framed stackable chairs may have a warm, rural look, but suffer from a number of disadvantages; thus they can rarely be used on terraces, since wood cannot sustain a range of weather conditions. Even if used only indoors, wooden stackable chairs require treatment with special wax or oil at least twice a year.
Tip: Napoleon and Chiavari are inspired by classic wooden stackable chairs, but can be used indoors as well as outdoors since they are made of maintenance-free polypropylene.
Catering owners who prefer modern furniture can easily find stackable chairs with a chromed or aluminium metal frame. However, such metals can oxidise and therefore the chairs cannot be used on terraces. Even if used on the indoors, chrome and aluminium require a lot of maintenance to prevent oxidation, but the trendy look of Scala or Spectra XL stackable chairs more than compensates for this, even if we say so ourselves.
Tip: would you prefer a modern stackable chair made of polypropylene? Then Jade, June and Trix would be an excellent choice - even for use on the terrace!
Or choose our Kasar chair from the X-Design collections.
Also consider the maintenance of the seats
Stackable chairs with leather seats also look very attractive; but they won’t stay that way if you don’t treat them regularly with a care product. Direct exposure to sunlight discolours the leather. Leather stackable chairs should also be kept away from heat sources, since this dries out the leather.
Want to buy stackable chairs? Don't forget the transport trolley
Stackable chairs are extremely practical, even during transportation. With the handy Flexfurn transport trolleys, you can easily move stacks of about ten chairs from one room to another. Loading and unloading is also a lot easier if you have planned an event on location.
