When someone mentions plastic (or polypropylene) chairs it’s sure to conjure up immediate memories (good or bad) of school days of old, or indeed the airport lounge where you had to spend an uncomfortable few hours aimlessly ‘hanging about’ while your flight was delayed. Alternatively, how about the doctor’s waiting room or hospital where you battled through the rush hour traffic trying to make your appointment only to be told that “Actually the doctor/nurse is running about a hour behind schedule so you’ll have to wait.”
Because of associations like these, it’s easy to see why not everyone is a lover of the humble polypropylene chair. That said, they are making somewhat of a comeback and many cafés/restaurants and bistros are embracing the polypropylene chair like never before. Here’s why!
Choice, choice and more choice!
When it comes to colour choices, you’ll find that with polypropylene chairs, the list is endless. So why not let your creative juices flow and choose from a rainbow of primary and pastel colours. Look to mix and match them to create that unique funky ‘light and bright’ style or authentic retro design. It isn’t just colours that are varied, the styles are too. Polypropylene chairs can be moulded into pretty much any shape, style or design from simplistic angular designs that wouldn’t look out of place in the Bauhaus movement through to sweeping curved models that have more than a touch of the Renaissance about them.
Strong and durable
PP chairs are lightweight in design so that they can easily be moved around to suit the needs of your customers, yet they’re also incredibly strong and durable. As such they’re perfect for busy establishments with high levels of customer turn over. In addition many are designed to be weatherproof so they won’t fade, crack or warp meaning they’re perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, giving you far more flexibility. They’re also scratch resistant and designed to be stacked. This is great when extra seating is required to accommodate large influxes of people because they can be stored away conveniently when not in use.
Great value for money
Similarly to any other type of composite chair, top of the range polypropylene models by well-known designers can fetch hundreds of dollars a piece. That said, many others also offer great value for money and more often than not, you can kit your whole establishment out for a fraction of the cost of solid wood or aluminium chairs.
