Choosing Cafe Furniture – Tips to Get it Right

choosing cafe furnitureWhether you’re running an established cafe or just starting out, choosing the right cafe furniture is an essential component of your venue’s success. At Cafe Chairs Melbourne, we have helped thousands of customers with their choice of tables and chairs and accordingly, we like to think we know a thing or two about commercial hospitality furniture.

Here are some tip tips for choosing cafe furniture

A Strong Concept

Before rushing out to buy cafe furniture pause to consider what type of cafe you are running and who are your clientele likely to be. Is it more like a hangout for students or would you describe it as a high-end bistro? Perhaps it’s a place for young mums to meet or a stop off for people on their way to work. Whatever your vision (don’t forget you may be aiming for multiple demographics) your choice of cafe furniture should reflect this.

Bold Design

People tend to remember furniture that is colourful or bold so don’t be scared to try out something different that will make your cafe the talk of the town (in a good way, of course). Whether that’s glossy pink Tolix chairs or tables made from driftwood, feel free to let your creative juices run amok when choosing cafe furniture.

High-Quality Construction

The best-looking furniture is of little use if it needs replacing a couple of months down the line. At Cafe Chairs Melbourne, all our furniture is commercial grade and designed to last for several years even in the busiest of environments.


While sturdiness and style are important considerations, most people that come through your doors will be wanting to relax over a hot drink with something to eat and want to feel comfortable doing so. Booth seating is ultra-comfortable since it’s usually well padded and has a high backrest that ensures an element of privacy – it also takes up less room than a standard table and chair set. Alternatively, you might want to consider using tub chairs or providing a couple of sofas.

Tying it together

While some cafes like to have a mismatched appearance most cafe owners prefer their cafe chairs to complement their tables to create a dining space that is cohesive and puts customers at their ease.
