Cafe Chair Buying guide

How Do I Choose the Right Cafe or Bistro Chair?

Choosing the right chairs for your cafe or bistro involves considering several factors to ensure they not only look good but also meet the functional needs of your space.

Here’s a guide to help you make the right choice:

  • Consider Your Cafe's Style: The chairs should complement the overall aesthetic of your cafe or bistro. Whether your space has a modern, rustic, or vintage vibe, the chairs should align with your cafe furniture to create a cohesive look. Our Tivoli Wood Chair is a great mix of modern and rustic.
  • Comfort is key: Comfortable seating is crucial for a cafe or bistro, as it encourages customers to stay longer and return. Look for chairs with good back support and consider armrests for added comfort like our Oasaka Chair.
  • Size and Space Efficiency: Consider the size of your space and how many chairs you can fit without overcrowding. Stackable chairs can be a smart choice for smaller spaces or if you need to clear the space for different events.
  • Indoor vs. Outdoor Use: If you have an outdoor seating area, ensure the chairs are suitable for outdoor use. They should be able to withstand various weather conditions without deteriorating. Our Enir Stackable chair is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and is available in a range of colours like green, red and more.

All plastic cafe chairs are wipeable with a damp soft cloth. A mild washing-up liquid can be used with warm water but please avoid abrasive cleaners and strong cleaning chemicals. Once the chair is clean wipe down with a dry cloth to remove any standing water.

All other types of cafe chairs can be wiped down in the same way but with a minimum amount of water and the chairs will need to be dried to remove all moisture.
