Whether you’re getting married, having a surprise birthday party, or a business conference for work, if you’re organizing an event then you’re going to need some event furniture. While each event will probably require something a little bit different, nearly every event will need some kind of tables and chairs. Although you might think that getting tables and chairs is quite simple, you will actually be faced with a choice when it comes to event furniture. Each has its own merits and advantages; it’s important that you choose the one that will be most suited to the occasion.
Folding tables are an all-time classic, simply because they are so great at saving space. It’s so quick and easy to put them up and down; if your event doesn’t require a constant table – for example, if you want to move tables to create a dance space later in the night – then folding tables are the best option. They are also very easy to transport because of their folding attributes. There are usually a large variety of folding tables available, so whatever your budget, this is probably something you can afford. If you don’t want to put tablecloths over the tables though, do make sure that the tops are attractive enough beforehand.
All the tables generally available for event furniture, trestle tables are by far one of the most popular. This is due to their extreme strength yet reasonable price. Trestle tables can also be folded and stored, though not as easily or space efficiently as folding tables.
Trestle tables are often made out of steel, which is why they are so strong, and come in a variety of sizes. Whether you’re looking for a small refreshments table, or tables to use for stacking presents and signing cards, trestle tables are flexible and can be used to meet a variety of needs.
If you’re holding a conference, wedding or event where you want to have food, then banqueting tables will definitely be helpful for you. These tables are very affordable and designed specifically to be dressed up or covered with a tablecloth and used for banquets and functions. These tables are available in a rectangular, square or circular shape, so whatever you need, a banqueting table will probably suit. Using a table trolley is the most effective way of transporting banqueting tables as they do not fold down at all.
Sometimes called ‘Camelot chairs’, Chiavari chairs are the most popular and durable type of event chairs. They are usually made out of wood and include a changeable seat pad, so you can choose the color to match the theme of your event. This is particularly beneficial for weddings and themed parties. These beautiful chairs are also stackable, which means you can store and transport them very easily. This is very beneficial for events, as you often need to move things quickly and with the least stress possible. The Chiavari chair is very stylish, chic and the number 1 chair used at weddings this year.
Folding chairs are an old classic. They are usually made from steel and plastic, and perfect for events being held outdoors. They are very lightweight, easy to handle and, of course, they fold down to a compact size, making them easy to store and transport. Although they might not be the most aesthetically pleasing chairs, they are available in a variety of colors and are relatively cheap, so if you’re doing an event on a budget, then these chairs are great. Conclusion every event is different and so each will require something unique. However, the staple furniture of tables and chairs is something almost every event requires.
