Comments Off on Update Your Restaurant Furniture and Boost Your Xmas Appeal
Christmas comes but once a year. And for restaurants and cafes it’s the busiest time of year. Throughout December commercial venues will be catering for everything from office knees-ups to family get togethers. So its vital that your furniture is up to scratch.
As we head towards the busy festive period, now is a great time to take a good look at your contract furniture. Is it looking a bit weary and worn? Will it add to the customer’s dining experience? Why not update some of your furniture to make sure you’re prepared not just for the Christmas rush for the new year too.
Order now for pre-Christmas delivery
With more group bookings expected at this time of year, it’s helpful to ensure that your restaurant tables can accommodate different size parties. For this blog post we’ve selected a few of our contract furniture items that we believe are ideal for busy restaurants.
All our stocked items are available to be delivered in time for Christmas 2019 if ordered by December 16. For bespoke items, you’ll need to contact us by mid November to ensure delivery.
Turning the tables …
First things first: tables. Are your current dining tables fit for purpose? Can you accommodate larger bookings by pushing tables of the same height together? Are they easy to clean? Are they able to withstand heavy use yet still maintain their good looks?
Warner Contract Furniture stock a huge range of contract quality dining tables. You can choose from complete tables, tables bases and table tops.
Perhaps the most versatile option for any venue is to buy table bases and table tops separately. This allows you to customise your dining areas to suit your business needs.
You can mix and match different styles and materials to create the look that perfectly suits your venue and ambience. Choose from metal, solid wood, veneer and laminate finishes and a good range of size options, from 2-seater to 8-seater options.
Even within a range of table bases we can offer flexibility. For example, take our Mayan range. These sturdy yet stylish black cast iron table bases come in round, square, single and double pedestal formats plus a range of heights.
The Mayan range looks good with any of our table tops, including solid wood, laminate table tops and metal. As with our table bases we stock a wide range of sizes and in square, round and rectangular format.
Our Chunky Oak Table Tops are a popular choice for restaurants. Solid wood is always in fashion and can blend in with a host of different interior designs – from contemporary to traditional.
For an even more hard-wearing table, then you should choose from our range of laminate table tops. With a huge range of decorative finishes to choose from – including marble, block colours and wood grain – our laminate table tops are incredibly hard wearing, easy to maintain and will age gracefully.
And for extra sparkle and shine, we also stock metal table tops, including beautiful brass, and copper, which will add to the festive atmosphere.
Pull up a chair …
Restaurant chairs need to be comfortable and hard-wearing. They also need to combine practicality with style so they can complement many different interior designs.
Our Homa Veneer Back Dining Chair is a popular choice. Not only does it look classy, it is one of the most robust chairs available in the UK. It has a solid beech frame supporting a veneer seat and back, stained and lacquered in a darker wenge finish.
It also features a wipe-clean faux leather cushioned seat pad in a choice of three colours: white, cement and mustard. What’s more, when not in use, these versatile chairs can be stacked up to four high for easy storage. Which is handy when those large group bookings turn up.
Restaurant Chairs that are immediately available include: the Trent Dining Chair which features a deep upholstered seat in cream and brown faux leather; and Epsom High Back Dining Chairs, also in cream and brown faux leather.
Other in-stock chairs come in classy burgundy and grey faux leather upholstery, including our Repton Side Chairs, Wave Side Chairs, and Angel Side Chairs.
Making it social …
Restaurants that offer a more contemporary dining experience require a more modern furniture style. Rectangular tables and bench seating offers a great solution. Such dining sets look ‘cool’ and can accommodate larger groups of diners, sharing ‘canteen’ style.
The clean, functional lines of our Tokyo Dining Set provides a minimalist, ‘utilitarian’ look for restaurants and even roof terraces. It comprises a dining table and two bench seats. The frames are made from contract quality steel with a lacquered finish in black or white.
There is a choice of four colour options: black frame with white top; black frame with oak top; white frame with white top; and white frame with oak top.
The Tokyo Dining Table can also be purchased separately for use with built-in upholstered bench seating and other commercial chairs.
And … don’t forget the kids
A Christmas family gathering without the kids is unthinkable. And you don’t want to be turning away business at this time of year. So, now is a good time to check if you have enough high chairs to cope with the Christmas demand.
Our Bambino High Chairs are ideal for use in restaurants. Suitable for children up to three years old, Bambino high chairs include a safety strap and fully comply with BS EN 14988-2017. They are manufactured from sold beech hardwood and come in choice of natural or walnut wood stain. Bambino high chairs can be easily wiped clean after use and can be stacked (up to four high) to save space when they’re not needed.
We hope we’ve given you some food for thought about how you might refresh your restaurant furniture in time for the Christmas period. But remember, commercial furniture isn’t just for Christmas – it’s for life! Our contract quality tables and chairs will stand the test of time.
