Key features to consider when buying library seating

  1. Colours: The upholstery material colour choice should be a mid colour and not too dark or light. Dark colours show up marks and dirt more than mid colours.
  2. Seat material: Vinyl should always be used on the seat and fabric to the back if needed. It is wipeable and easy to maintain compared to fabric.
  3. Movable furniture: If you do not need to move your modular library furniture around make sure the units are connected together to keep the furniture looking tidy.
  4. Quiet areas: Select high back sofas to increase the privacy and quietness.

Library Seating FAQs

How do I pick the best library soft seating?

Here a a few tips to select the best library soft seating:

  1. Make sure you have a selection of modular seating for short term use near the book shelving and more comfortable seating for longer use in a dedicated area.
  2. Don't select colours that are too bright and colourful. This will make the library look like an area for small children.
  3. Select the correct library furniture materials from fabric, vinyl and leather. Vinyl is wipeable and leather will give a more executive look to your library.
  4. Always consider how the furniture will work for the disabled and partially sited. Try to add colours on the edge of the tables or counter to help people navigate the library.

How can you use library furniture to create a relaxing space?

  1. Always choose softer materials like fabrics and real wood in a library design. These materials will always create a more relaxed environment for your visitors.
  2. Try using fabric dividing screens and shelving to create smaller more cosy areas.
  3. High backed booth seating can also help create quiet spaces for library visitors. The high back is over head height and the natural fabrics absorb ambient sound made by other users.
  4. Always include small and large living plants in the library space to create a more natural feel in a bust library.
