Choosing the Right Supplier for Your Commercial Hospitality Furniture Needs

Before delving into the specifics of selecting conference and event furniture, it’s essential to choose a reputable supplier with operational experience in the hospitality industry.

Key Factors to Consider When Choosing Event Furniture


  1. Functionality and Durability: When selecting conference and banquet furniture, prioritise functionality and durability. Consider the intended use of the furniture and choose pieces that are designed to withstand the rigours of daily use in an hotel environment. Opt for materials that are easy to clean and maintain, such as high-quality upholstery fabrics and durable steel or aluminium frames. 


  1. Style and Aesthetics: The style and aesthetics of your hotel furniture play a significant role in creating a cohesive and inviting atmosphere for guests. Consider the overall design theme of your hotel and choose furniture pieces that complement the existing decor. Whether you prefer a modern, minimalist look like the Linea Chair, or a classic, traditional style like the Classic Chair, select furniture that aligns with your hotel’s and event space’s brand identity and enhances the overall guest experience. Event furniture is typically used in large quantities in a room.  Whilst individual stacking chairs or folding tables might not look like something you would have in your home, it is important to picture them in large quantities in an event venue and only consider the areas that you can typivlly see, such as the top of the chairs, and the tops of tables – don’t get distracted by the look of legs etc, they will rarely be noticed.  


  1. Comfort and Ergonomics: Comfort is paramount when selecting event furniture, especially stackable banquet chairs where guests spend extended periods sitting. Choose furniture that prioritises comfort and ergonomics, such as moulded seat cushions options with adequate support and ergonomic design features, such as the Helix Chair. Comfortable banquet-style seats not only enhance the guest experience but also encourages guests to relax and enjoy the event.  Equally important is the managment of table leg interference – banquet patrons can avoid table leg issues if the venue using the latest banquet table designs such as the Premier Banquet Table.  Manual handling by staff should always be considered and not underestimated – ensure carts are used and that staff can easily and safely stack and store event furniture in the shortest time.


  1. Space Efficiency: In hotel and other hospitality settings where space is at a premium, opt for stackable chairs, banquet tables, buffet and cocktail tables that can be easily stored when not in use. Stackable chairs and folding tables are ideal for banquets and conferences, and can help maximise space utilisation in any event space and dining areas.


  1. Quality and Craftsmanship: When investing in hospitality furniture, prioritise quality and craftsmanship to ensure longevity and durability. Choose furniture pieces that are constructed with precision, such as with robotic welding of joints, using high-quality commercial-grade materials and finishes. Quality furniture not only enhances the aesthetic appeal, it also ensures a sustained return on investment to the operator.
