Chairs with cushioning aren’t a novel idea - in fact you’d have to go back to the mid 17th Century to find seating that mostly consisted of just timber. In the far distant past, chairs were mostly associated with those who had money or were born into the aristocracy. In the 17th Century the design of chairs began to change and suit the demands of the rich upper classes who wanted chairs with upholstery. At this point leather began to be added to seats used by the aristocracy, with silk and velvet following.
By the 18th Century the Rococo chair featured cushioning that could be added to removable frames with clips. Popular during the reign of Louis XV were seats that had upholstered backs. During the following centuries designs soon began to match fashions as well as the practicalities of the environment in which they were destined. Different metals were used, and in 1964, a chair was created that was built to be comfortable and very useful for those in offices, public buildings and for events, like conferences, too. Designed by David Rowland, the 40/4 appears as a precursor to our stacking chairs.
An upholstered seat set on a chromed steel framed rod, this lightweight product could be stacked a staggering 40-high, and because it was both comfy and practical it became an award-winning model. Our black stacking chair encompasses all of these useful features, and more too. It’s the perfect choice for large events where you’d like to showcase the professional image of your company. Its many features make it ideal for big occasions, but another fantastic bonus to this product is that it’s very versatile and is also often ordered for smaller venues as well.

Our stacking chairs look good, but they also feel great to sit on too! This is down to the high grade materials used in the upholstery.

Comfort and appearance of seating is very important, but so are practical features because chairs that are easy to install, move and store are much more convenient. This product is all these things! This is because of the frame, which results in an item that is both sturdy and lightweight. Being attached to a tubular steel frame, the seat is very secure, but it’s easy to lift as well. So when these products require installation they can be set out quickly and without heavy lifting.
This also applies when seating needs to be stored - simply stack them five high and place in storage. Because of their stackability, these hire chairs help to preserve space in venues, which is essential when this is at a premium. Easy storage means that this product line is a great option when you need to increase or decrease your office seating at short notice, simply unstack from storage when you require them - such as for meetings, training or lectures - and put them away just as quickly.
