Picking the Perfect Wooden Folding Chairs

Nowadays, wooden folding chairs are nearly as popular as classic Chiavari chairs. Not only do they look modern and sleek, they’re extremely versatile, affordable, and easy to setup and teardown for events.

But how much do you know about folding event chairs? Could you name some of the differences between wooden folding chairs and, say… wooden Chiavari chairs, or even plastic folding chairs? Which ones stack the highest, cost the most, or have the best weight capacity?

Yup, that’s what we thought. There’s plenty of information available to help you pick the perfect wooden folding chairs for your business. Whether you’re just launching a party rental business or opening an event venue, here’s everything you need to know about Event Stable’s party-tested, commercial-quality, expert-endorsed wooden folding chairs.

Wooden Folding Chairs 101

Who uses wooden folding chairs?

Virtually everybody! That’s the beauty of them. From formal events like weddings and graduations to casual affairs like patio parties or at outdoor restaurants, wooden folding chairs can be used indoors and out and always provide a splash of easygoing elegance.

What’s the difference between resin and wood folding chairs?

At first glance, you may not notice much difference between the two materials. Both are available as padded folding chairs and have roughly the same footprint size. Event Stable also provides replacement cushions for both wooden folding chairs and resin models, making it easy to replace worn-out seat pads in a few seconds.However, resin folding chairs have a very slightly higher upfront cost than wood ones do. They also weigh about 1 ½ pounds less (10 ⅕ lbs. vs. 12 lbs.) and aren’t available in the same natural colors as wooden folding chairs. If you want the incomparable warmth of real wood at a slightly lower cost, wooden folding chairs are the best option.
