Embrace The Cabaret Chair And Give Your Cafe a Touch of Paris Chic

If you’re looking to revamp your cafe, restaurant, or bistro what better way to do it than to bring a touch of Parisienne chic. Here at Cafe Solutions our Cabaret Chairs in brushed tubular steel come in a wide variety of colours and are a nod to the iconic No.18 bentwood chair originally designed by Michael Thonet.

Designed back in 1859, it really was the world’s first mass produced chair. In fact by 1930 the No.18 chair had sold over 50 million units. Thonet chair owners included Lenin, Picasso, and Einstein and it’s been seen in many movies including Coco before Chanel, The American with George Clooney, the cafe scene in the now iconic Brief Encounter, Bugsy Malone, Flashdance and of course who can forget Liza Minelli dancing provocatively around it in the 1972 production, Cabaret.

The Cabaret chair is both simplistic and functional, yet honest and elegant, and goes to show that mass production doesn’t necessarily have to equate to poor design. Colourful and good looking, our replica chairs offer several benefits. These include:


Original Thonet chairs weren’t actually built to last, and when they were designed longevity wasn’t really on the agenda. Instead the cabaret chair was designed as a true, affordable chair for the masses. As such originals are very rare. However these modern versions are made of tubular steel so as well as being strong, they’re also incredibly lightweight. The high back provides excellent support and since the chair has no arms it’s perfect for smaller spaces. Easy to care for, a quick wipe down is all this chair needs to keep it looking like new.


Our cabaret chairs come in several colours designed to fit in with a wide variety of styles, designs and themes. If you have a minimalist or monochromatic style, then our black and white chairs are perfect. Want your design to stand out? Then our pillar box red cabaret chairs are a perfect addition. Our light blue cabaret chairs will fit right in to a shabby chic Mediterranean or New England style or our sunburst yellow chairs would be ideal in a modern funky setting.


Original Bentwood cabaret chairs were always designed to be cheap affordable furniture and we ensure this legacy continues in our steel replica chairs. When you purchase from Cafe Solutions we ensure you get the lowest price. So as a solid investment for your business you can’t go wrong with a replica cabaret chair.
