When many of us think of a plastic chair it probably conjures up visions of the uncomfortably drab, nondescript, battleship grey seating that we had to endure in the school classroom. However the good news is that plastic or ‘polypropylene’ furniture as it’s also known has changed considerably over the years. So much so in fact that it’s making something of a comeback. As a result it is being embraced by café’s and bistro’s from Paris to Perth and not without good reason. With this in mind, if you’re thinking about a new look for your café, or are designing one from scratch, then here are four great reasons why you just might want to embrace the delights of plastic seating.
Wide variety of styling
As already mentioned plastic chairs are no longer just the preserve of the classroom and modern-day polypropylene designs come in a wide variety of styles and shapes. From the sublime fluid movements of the Ribbon chair through to the simplistic yet elegant designs of the Venezia chair there is a style to suit every café, or bistro. If you’re looking for dependability in your furniture then you can’t go wrong with the rugged Specta chair. Alternatively if you prefer something more ornate and up-market then the intricate work on the Stephanie or Grace chairs will certainly fit the bill. In fact whatever your style, there’s a plastic chair to suit.
Great colour choices
It’s important for any café to stand out from the crowd and as a result a particular colour-scheme that’s going to grab the attention of your customers is often the perfect solution. With plastic café seating you can do just this with a diverse assortment of hues. From funky and vibrant lime greens, violets and burnt oranges through to sumptuously rich chocolate browns and deep crimson reds for that retro feel, if you have a particular colour in mind, you’re sure to find a chair to match.
Perhaps one of the reasons why plastic furniture was first embraced by schools was for its convenience. Polypropylene seating is lightweight yet durable in design, meaning that it can be moved around easily and effortlessly to suit the needs of your business, whilst being rugged enough to withstand the strains of the most busy of café’s Most are stackable so they can be stored away when not in use and they’re also easily cleaned using a damp cloth. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and they can be used both indoors and out. In other words, in all areas of your business, plastic seating is about as user-friendly as you can get.
Arguably, one of the main reasons that sway people towards plastic furniture, particularly seating, is its affordability. Many makes and models cost far less than wood or aluminium, yet their modern-day designs can look just as funky, retro or indeed stylish.
So there you have it, plastic seating in a nut shell! It’s comfortable, affordable and fashionable and for these reasons, you really can’t go wrong.
