Coming Soon: Crossback Chair Storage Covers

Cross Back Chair Covers

We brought in cross back chairs earlier this spring and then a new colour of cross back chairs at the beginning of this month. They’ve been a great seller for us already and with the trend certainly not slowing down we wanted to find a way to ensure these wood event chairs were protected when stored and transported by rental companies. We’ve also been getting a lot of questions about where to buy cross back chair storage covers so we originally wrote a blog post to address that.

I’m pleased to announce that coming late-November 2016 is Crossback Chair Storage Covers to our Mississauga warehouse.

These storage covers will help ensure the cross-back chairs can be stored in a warehouse without getting dirty or dusty – and help ensure they don’t get scratched up when they are stored or stacked. They’re made of the same fabric as the chiavari chair covers.

At this point I don’t have information on the sell price for these covers but as soon as we get the shipment in, I will be posting another post letting you all know first!

Back in Stock: 5ft Square Wood Folding Tables

5ft Square Wood Folding Tables

Every once in a while we get requests for differently shaped folding tables – above and beyond rectangle or square. We stock serpentine folding tables in both wood and plastic, as well as half-moon tables in wood. We’ve also started getting into non-standard sizes for rounds and rectangles – including 8ft x 36” tables, 8ft x 42” tables, 7ft rounds, 8ft rounds and 8ft ovals. Most of these are custom order products right now but that can always change – and you’ll be the first to know! In the past we had 5ft square wood folding tables but when we switched to a more reliable, higher quality wood folding table manufacturer, we didn’t have the ability to manufacture 5ft square wood folding tables.

It has been almost 7 years since the switch and our manufacturer has grown into the ability to make just about any wood folding table we can think of. Because of this, I’m pleased to announce that now back in stock is 5ft square wood folding tables.

Made of clear coated ¾ inch thick plywood and feature supports that form a box on the underside of the table. Because of this support structure, the tables will not bend or warp under the heaviest of loads.

Additional Details:

  • 60 inches long x 60 inches wide
  • Edging is t-shaped black vinyl
  • Bolt-through construction to secure rails and folding legs to ensure strength and durability
  • Wishbone-style leg design
  • 18 Gauge grey powder-coated steel legs
  • Snap lock legs to secure legs in an open position

New in Stock: 6ft Plexiglass Tabletop Bar Back

6ft Chrome Tabletop Back Bar

Back in April we announced that we had plexiglass bar furniture available for special order. These contemporary event furniture fixtures make a great DJ booth, makeshift bar, end table or coffee table to compliment a grouping of modern furniture as well as a great cruiser/cocktail table. We’ve been having great success with the bar units in particular – both the 6ft plexiglass bar and the 6ft plexiglass bar with shelf. Most of these bar tables are available by special order and custom made to order however from time to time we also bring them in and have them in stock and in inventory.

I’m pleased to announce the availability of a new product: a 6ft Plexiglass Tabletop Back bar in stock in our Mississauga warehouse.

This back bar stands 40 inches high, 18 inches wide and 72 inches long. It allows event venues and party rental to provide customers with a bar that sits on a skirted or covered table for showcasing liquor and drinks behind the bar.

Additional Details:

  • White acrylic (plexiglass) top and shelf
  • Welded chrome frames
  • Designed for commercial rental use
  • Top and shelf supported with cross-bars for structural support

3 Common Misconceptions about Crystal Stemware

Crystal Stemware Misconceptions

Crystal stemware is used a lot in fine dining restaurants as well as rented out to special events where a little sparkle is necessary on the table – or if a more luxurious atmosphere is wanted. It tends to be synonymous with a higher end price tag. There are misconceptions that exist with both crystal stemware and glass stemware but today I’m going to touch on the 3 misconceptions that people often assume about crystal stemware – in no particular order.

1. It’s really expensive

While it is true it can be a more expensive – this is more often than not the result of how it is manufactured and who is selling the crystal stemware. Crystal stemware that is hand blown by master craftsman is obviously going to be priced higher because of the human labour involved in producing it. Also, glass blowers are not a dime a dozen and is a craft that doesn’t have millions flocking to learn the trade. That being said, crystal stemware can be machine made – making the glasses more uniform in appearance and lowering unit costs. Also, companies that sell crystal stemware get very good at knowing how to specifically market crystal to appeal to our wants of luxury, fine craftsmanship and extravagance. Because of this, the pricing has been inflated because they have created a market that can support a higher price. Looking for wholesale suppliers of crystal stemware can help alleviate these higher prices.

2. It’s even more breakable than glass

While generally a more breakable substance than glass, crystal stemware tends to have the same issues that also occur with glass stemware. The bowls of the crystal and glass stemware can pop off the foot. That being said, assuming you handle crystal stemware like it can break – and that it isn’t indestructible – it should hold up well for you.

3. It’s not safe because of lead content

Health Canada’s stance on lead crystal is that it may release lead into your food or beverage. That being said, there is lead-free crystal stemware that exists these days. This eliminates the worry that may exist of potential lead poisoning.
