Whether needed for an event or your office, you may have
cause to rent or purchase conference chairs. When you start shopping around,
you will very likely be overwhelmed with the available choices. While many
tables already include chairs, the chairs may not be suitable. In most cases,
you can split furnishing groups up. If you’ve found the perfect table, but the
chairs that accompany it are not suitable, you can usually opt to purchase or lease
the chairs that you prefer instead. Here
are the things that you need to consider.
the chairs match the table? When you purchase separate chairs, it is
important that they match the table, in terms of color and style. Don’t
just look at the color! Often, the design of a chair simply does not look
good with certain styles of tables. The height of the seat of the chair
also matters. You don’t want your clients to sit down and have their chins
bumping the top of the table. Make sure that the height of the chair in
relation to the height of the table is suitable for people of average
the conference chairs comfortable? Comfort is everything. The worst thing
in the world is for clients or employees to be forced to sit in chairs
that are not comfortable for hours on end. Remember that comfort entails

material that covers the chair, arm support, and more. Chairs that make
noise when people move about are not comfortable from a mental standpoint.
the chairs support people of all sizes? We are a very diverse world, and
there are people of all sizes and shapes. There will most likely come a
point in time when a heavy person graces your conference room, and you
need to have chairs that can support their weight, as well as their size
in terms of space. You don’t want to make your employees or visitors feel
uncomfortable about their size.
well made are the conference chairs? Some furnishings are just shoddy in
their craftsmanship. How embarrassed would you and your client be if they
sat down and the chair fell apart? Even if it means paying a little more,
make sure that you are getting great quality in the craftsmanship. Cheap
chairs usually do not have the quality that you will desire.
is the cost of the chairs? Obviously, this matters a great deal to your
budget. Again, these furnishings can be purchased or leased, and if the
purchase price doesn’t fit into your budget, the lease price probably
will. You might also consider purchasing used chairs, but you don’t want
furnishings that actually look used. You would be better off leasing new
exhibition furniture in most cases.
purchase or lease chairs based solely on how they look. If you make this
mistake, you will find that you have uncomfortable – unhappy – clients and
employees. Always look for style and comfort when shopping for conference
