Cafe furniture is manufactured in a wide variety of materials and styles which makes it easier for new or existing cafe owners to find something which fits their cafe’s style, theme and décor. Two of the most popular manufacturer’s choice for cafe furniture is wood and metal. This blog post covers some basic points to consider when purchasing metal cafe furniture including chairs, tables, bar stools and table bases.
Why buy metal?
One of the main advantages of choosing to buy metal cafe furniture is that there is a wide variety of options available to you. Metal chairs come in a broad spectrum of colours, wide choice of back options, different coloured vinyl seat and wooden seats in different types of timber. Metal cafe bar stools, similar to their metal chair counterparts, also offer a wide choice of styles, height, back options and seat colour choices. There are also plenty of backless metal bar stools to choose from.
Metal is affordable
Metal cafe furniture can be found in budget-friendly options especially when selecting replica designer furniture such as Tolix. Manufactured in the exact same way as the original Pauchard designs of the 1930s, a replica comes at a fraction of the price of an original and yet still looks just as amazing.
Metal is durable
Even though metal cafe furniture may be cheaply priced, there’s nothing cheap about its quality and durability. Commercial metal cafe furniture is manufactured from high-quality steel and powder coated to prevent it from scratches and knocks.
When the joints are welded on metal furniture or bar stools, this too increases their durability. Welded joints hold together better than joints which are bolted together. Metal chairs with a bolt and nut to secure the sections together are harder to maintain and are usually found in metal furniture designed for use in the home.
Metal is great for indoor and outdoor use
Many metal cafe tables, barstools, and chairs are designed for indoor and outdoor use. Stainless steel furniture can be used indoors and outside. Some cafes have sliding doors which open onto a patio or terrace, creating an outdoor space that is sometimes partially covered. Metal furniture is ideal for these situations since it will withstand outdoor elements and maintain its durability. Often you can find metal furniture with matching tables, chairs, and bar stools, making it easier than ever to furnish your cafe.
Metal can be light in weight
The majority of outdoor metal furniture is lightweight yet durable, which makes complete sense. After all who wants to shift heavy furniture around outside if a large group arrives, for instance? Lightweight metal tables allow customers to move tables together and also aids cafe staff when tables need to be moved and stored.
