Cafe Furniture FAQs

What is another name for cafe tables?

Commercial cafe tables are also known as bistro tables. These are the small, round tables that you would typically associate with traditional French cafe furniture.

What is the standard size of a bistro table?

Bistro tables are traditionally small, with a 24” (60 cm) round table top and a height of 30” (76 cm).

What cafe furniture can be used outside?

  • Cafe furniture intended for outside use should be made from suitable outdoor cafe furniture materials that are resistant to rain, cold weather and sun damage.
  • Suitable materials include polypropylene, aluminium, stainless steel or metals treated for outdoor use plus hardwoods like teak.
  • Some outdoor tables and chairs are made from a combination of these materials.

Is Spaceist cafe furniture suitable for commercial spaces?

Yes, all our furniture products are made to a commercial standrard and are selected by us to be suitable for business use.

Spaceist furniture is designed especially for the specific demands and needs of commercial businesses like cafes, office breakout areas as well as public spaces like schools and colleges.

We understand that a wholesale chair or sofa for commercial use needs to be hard-wearing as well as beautifully designed. Our cafe furniture is designed to withstand constant daily use and regular cleaning.

All cafe table chairs (in fact all chairs for sale) come with a five year warranty.

What is the best type of material for easy cleaning?

Plastic cafe chairs and tables are some of the easiest cafe furniture products to clean.

  • Wipe down your high quality furniture for cafes with a damp, non-abrasive microfiber cloth.
  • Antibacterial sprays can be used on commercial cafe furniture, but try them first on the underside of the cafe table and chairs to test for bleaching or discolouring.
  • Plastic coffee shop tables and chairs do not soak up moisture and are not easily stained.
  • Warm water and a non-abrasive detergent can be used regularly to clean dirt off cafe seating, leaving your cafe chairs looking like new.

Can I leave chairs stacked for long periods?

Yes, you can leave chairs stacked for long periods of time, (provided they are suitable for stacking of course). As expert suppliers of coffee shop tables and chairs, we usually recommend stackable options for cafe seating, especially for chairs in covered outdoor areas which should be stacked indoors over winter if not being used. This will lengthen the life of the chairs considerably.

Stacking tips:

  • Do not exceed the maximum recommended weight when stacking tables and chairs. The bottom chair or table can be damaged if the total stack weight exceeds the recommended limit.
  • Make sure you clean the furniture before stacking. This will remove any dirt from the seats and backs so the weight of the chairs and tables above will not grind the dirt into the surfaces below.

How do I carry the stacked chairs indoors?

A stacking chair trolley with wheels is the most suitable way to move chairs indoors

  • Most stacking cafe chairs can be stacked 8+ high.
  • This means that they can be stacked directly onto the trolley and easily moved indoors for overnight or winter storage, making the whole process faster and safer.

Always be careful when moving heavy weights like six or eight stackable chairs. We’d recommend that you don’t try to lift more than three or four chairs or one or two tables at a time.

How do you fold and stack a cafe table?

  • There is a button or lever under the commercial cafe tables that can be pushed to release the mechanism and allow the table top to tilt up so that the tables can be pushed together.
  • Cleverly angled legs allow the folded tables to be pushed flat against each other to minimise storage space.

One of our most popular folding tables is the Ypsilon. The base is made from light-weight aluminium and the metal base is very light.

Is a wood table top suitable for coffee shop use?

Yes, if the wood cafe furniture has been properly sealed with a varnish or oil it is suitable for coffee shop use. As professional wholesale furniture suppliers, we generally suggest a wood-effect contract laminate for commercial tables and chairs - a practical choice for cafe seating in even the busiest coffee shops as well as high-impact spaces like hospitals or clinics.
