19th Jun 2020

When you’re setting up a conference or wedding venue, one of the key elements that you’ll need to consider is the type of seating that you’re going to choose. What kind of chairs should you be providing for guests or delegates?

Two of the most popular options are round back chairs and shield back chairs. Both are practical and stylish, so which one is right for your venue? Let’s take a closer look at some of the similarities and differences and advantages and disadvantages of each.

Stackable Chairs

When you’re choosing seating for any type of venue, the most important thing is to choose furniture which suits your needs and the requirements of the venue itself. This is why so many people opt for stackable chairs since they are simple to remove and replace as necessary.

Both round back and shield back banqueting chairs are designed to be stacked, so both are equally convenient in this respect. Both can also be loaded onto a chair trolley for even easier movement around your space, saving you time, effort and energy.

Round Back Chairs

Round back banqueting chairs come in a range of styles, colours and metals. Simple, robust and convenient, they look attractive without being too ornate, and they are easy to stack and to move between spaces whenever required. With comfortable padded seats, they are ideal for any type of event where guests will be sitting for any extended period of time. Round back chairs work well in a wide range of venues from hotel conference rooms to dining rooms.

Shield Back Chairs

Shield back banqueting chairs are similar in style to a round back chair but with one noticeable difference. Rather than having a simple round back, a shield back chair has a curved back design which adds a little more elegance and sophistication to their appearance. This makes them an ideal option for higher-end venues, for weddings, for banquets and balls where a little extra class and style is required.

With comfortable padded seats and a wide of colours and metals to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect shield back chair for any space. Even better, they are also fully stackable so they can easily be stored away whenever necessary making them a convenient choice without ever compromising on aesthetic appeal.
