Stacking Chairs – Why Your Cafe Needs Them

stacking chairs save space

Choosing the right cafe furniture is as important as the food you serve. Both should give your customers an understanding of your brand and create the right ambience. Being consistent throughout your design is key to setting the scene for customers so they know what to expect almost before they walk through your doors. In this post, we’re going to talk about the merits of stacking chairs and why you might want to consider using them in your cafe.

About our stacking chairs

At Cafe Chairs Sydney, we stock an extensive range of chairs that can be stacked and these come in a wide variety of styles, colours, and materials. Many of these chairs have passed rigorous AFRDI testing, meaning you can purchase them with total peace of mind. So, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of stacking chairs and how they could work for you.

Space saving

It’s always handy to have extra chairs that can be bought out at your busiest times to accommodate extra guests or to replace chairs that are currently out of action, for whatever reason. However, conventional chairs can take up a lot of space when they’re stored which brings us to one of the main benefits of stacking chairs. Many of our stacking chair options can be stacked vertically up to 10 or even more high. As a result, they take up considerably less space in a cupboard or corridor. Because they are lightweight, it’s also easy to move them around to meet your business needs.


While the majority of cafe chairs can only be used for one purpose i.e. seating at your cafe, stacking chairs are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and at any type of event. Because of their weight and ease of stacking, it’s easy to put them into the back of a van to drive them to a venue that’s hosting a wedding reception or a conference. Plus when it comes to cleaning up after the event, because the chairs stack, the job take far less time to complete.


Due to their nature of being moved around from pillar to post, stacking chairs are designed to be durable as they will no doubt be moved around numerous times. Many of our stackable chairs are made from polypropylene which is designed to withstand the type of harsh climate that we have here in Australia. Come rain or shine, polypropylene chairs can cope with it all with rusting, cracking, or fading.

Aesthetically pleasing

With a huge range of styles and colours it’s never been easier to find chairs that complement your décor and reflect your style. Even if you can’t find a close match, you can add colourful cushions to achieve the look you want.

Easy maintenance

Theoretically there is no maintenance involved with stacking chairs. As most of them are made from polypropylene, all they should require is the odd wipe over with a damp cloth and mild cleaning agent.
