Are Cross Back Chairs Right For Your Wedding Venue in 2020?

It's 2020 so Cross Back Chairs aren't exactly new to you if you're in the party rental or event venue business, just like bluetooth headphones aren't really setting the world on fire. 

The thing about those bluetooth headphones, though? You gotta have them. Anybody who bought a new cell phone in the last 2 years will tell you that. Not only are they trendy and cool, they're also super useful and make your life easier in ways you might not even realize. 

Keeping your inventory stocked with Cross Back Chairs can have the same effect, albeit not in the way you might break off a move to Carribean Queen with your ear buds in. 

Not only are Cross Back Chairs an item you should carry, they might be your most popular seating option for brides at your event venue - especially with the way we've seen trends heading in 2020 and beyond. 

Why Cross Back Chairs are Right For Your Wedding Venue

Listen, Chiavari Chairs aren't going anywhere. That classic wood wedding chair available in a wide array of colors - gold, mahogany, fruitwood and white to name a few, have been and will probably continue to be event industry staples. 

Everybody likes to play the hits but they do get boring and repetitive at times. Cross Back Chairs have that bit of flair you might be missing and they offer an elegant, rustic option that so many brides are going for as of late.

So why choose the Cross Back Chairs over the more colorful Chiavari Chairs and Wood Folding Chairs? 

While the the Chiavari might offer formality, it doesn't compare to the warmth of a Cross Back Chair. And the warmth offered by (yes, cheaper)Wood Folding Chairs doesn't stack up to the formality of the hand crafted, solid wood Cross Back Chair.

What you have here is the best of both worlds. Warm and formal, handsomly distressed and ready to seat your guests at your next event, whether it be a wedding, formal party or corporate event.  

Let's take a closer look at what really sets Cross Back Chairs apart, and why we think our chairs beat out the competition. 

Our Cross Back Chairs have been some of our best sellers for the reasons stated above. 

Whether you choose the Madison or Vineyard Estate Mark II series, you'll be getting a stacking chair that's not only battle tested, it's also been improved from our previous models

If the Vineyard Estate Mark II Cross Back chair sounds like a supreme seating option, it's because it is in our view. 

Constructed from the shock resistant and oak clone that is ash wood, this durable solid frame is one that won't buckle over time.

What more is there to ask for in a cross back chair? In this industry you want something that looks attractive, maybe even the appearance of a fragile work of the art -but with the performance of a time tested diesel engine.

That's the new Vineyard Estate Cross Back Chair - Mark II.

The Mark II Madison Cross Back Chair is the new and improved version of our original Madison Series. Don't worry, we kept the ulra comfortable 16.5'' wide seat and upgraded the rest. 

A more durable, hand crafted  design built for sustained commercial use has replaced the previous model with one that's made of rubber wood.

"Wait what is rubberwood?" Good question. It actually comes from the enviromentaly friendly rubber tree.

The same tree that produces latex for those super bouncey balls also contains the wood we used to bend that infamous X-Back frame with outstanding results.

So after your guests are done bouncing around the dance floor, they can relax and take a load off on our Madison Cross Back Chairs that offer all the support in the world. 

If you've decided that Cross Back Chairs are the place for your guests to sit then you need to match it up with something they can gather around and eat, drink and be merry, right? 

Look no further than our Farm Tables. Available in the form of a folding table for easy transport and set up, or a more rustic option in our Parsons Farm Table and Reclaimed Elm Farm Table - both come with leg optioons. 


Simple yet sophisticated, understated yet overperformed. With rustic weddings and events on the rise and becoming more of the norm in 2020, it's in your best interest to invest in Cross Back Chairs now and for the future.
