Bar and restaurant furniture needs to create an atmosphere that keeps customers coming back for more. First dates, celebratory meals, catch ups with friends; bars and restaurants are where life happens. As the places we go to discuss our daily lives, eateries need to have a good vibe. And it all starts with the right décor.
What classes as bar and restaurant furniture? Simply put, it’s durable items that can stand the test of time in a busy commercial environment.
Your bar and restaurant furniture doesn’t have to be bland, why not turn the clock back and add a touch of mid-Century glam to your dining space? Vintage style dining room furniture can work wonders in a bar or restaurant. With so many reproduction options out there, you can get all the character and charm of an older piece of furniture, but perhaps without the signs of wear and tear.
Whether you’re searching for bar stools, chairs, or the perfect cafe table – there are so many varieties and styles to choose from. Add unique character with a bespoke table, or go for the rustic look with a natural wood dining table. You don’t have to stick with chairs either; restaurant bench seating is becoming more and more popular. Long wooden benches would go well with your natural wood dining table, and smaller benches would suit a cafe table.
For bar areas or poseur tables, bar stools are also available in a wide variety of styles. Stripped back metal and wooden bar stools work well with industrial interiors, and stools with painted frames or bright upholstered seats are perfect for adding a pop of colour to a more contemporary interior.
Industrial Dining Furniture
Bar and restaurant furniture doesn’t have to be ultra-trendy; often, signs of age on a piece of industrial dining furniture can enhance its appeal. Quirky, one-off pieces can be found that add a unique touch to an interior and make interesting conversation topics. Items can be reinvented and upcycled. An industrial trolley would make an unusual waiter station, a set of old machinist chairs could become re-purposed bar stools, and factory pigeon holes may just be the perfect place to display bar snacks.
When choosing bar and restaurant furniture, practicality is key. Vintage stacking chairs are always a popular choice of commercial furniture due to their versatility and sturdy design. Their stacking ability makes it easier to save space when they’re not in use, or to pile out of the way to allow the floors to be cleaned. With a variety of frames and seats to choose from, you’ll have no trouble finding stacking chairs to complement your bar, restaurant, cafe or pub. Reproduction stacking chairs are also becoming more common, and they are a simple way to add contemporary styling to your business.
