  • Seat Material: We have several options to choose from when it comes to the seat type, including wood, resin, vinyl, and more! Most of these chairs still have metal frames for superior support. Wood material offers an elegant, hand-crafted look for your restaurant. Other materials like resin are impact resistant for durability while vinyl is padded and easy to clean. 
  • Padded Seat: For more formal applications or longer events like wedding receptions and banquets, try our banquet chairs with comfortable padded seats.
  • Seat Cushions: Many chairs do come with padded seats, but we also offer separate seat cushions in a variety of colors to make wooden chairs more comfortable for guests. Pair your chairs with one of these stylish cushions to create a trendy, customizable look that can change as quickly as your needs! You can swap out different colors as often as you like to match the look of any event.

Stacking Guidelines

National Public Seating CTS30 Cafe Time 30 inch Stool

Determining appropriate stacking heights for your chairs or bar stools is an important safety issue that affects your business in a variety of ways. When you're stacking chairs, it's always best to follow any guidelines that may have been included in the packaging literature that came with your purchase. Even when it looks like your chairs can be stacked higher than the recommended number, remember that someone has to get those chairs down, which can be a dangerous task if they're stacked too high.
