Metal Dining Chairs -The Benefits

metal dining chairs

Metal dining chairs may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re considering chair options for your café or restaurant but once you’ve read this post, you may well change your mind.

One of the most popular metal dining chairs that most of you are probably familiar with is the Tolix A chair. Designed by Xavier Pauchard in the 1930s it’s utilitarian style made it popular for use in schools, factories and hospitals. Made from sheet steel it was lightweight yet strong and could even be stacked for convenient storage.

Metal furniture has grown widely in popularity, partly due to the resurrection of the industrial style which calls for exposed brickwork, steel girders, and simplistic metal furniture. Aside from that, there are several benefits of metal chairs in cafes and restaurants. These include:

  • Lightweight and strong While steel is strong and very durable it’s also incredibly light which means it’s easy to move it from one place to another to meet the needs of your customers.
  • Wide choice of styles – Metal dining chairs come in a wide array of styles from traditional to contemporary, so there’s something out there for even the most discerning customer
  • Colourful – Metal chairs are often powder-coated for added protection and come in a wide array of bold colours and metallic hues. If your décor is fairly neutral, then coloured metal dining chairs are a great way of jazzing it up.
  • Low maintenance – Metal chairs require very little maintenance. In fact, all you need to remove spills and dust is a damp cloth and a gentle non-abrasive cleansing agent.
  • Stackable – many metal chairs are designed to stack which can help you clean and tidy up faster at the end of a busy day. Stackable chairs are also a great choice if you have limited storage space available.
