Are Cross Back Chairs Stackable?

Cross Back Chairs Stack

The answer is: it depends on the supplier of the chair. There are cross back chairs on the market that are not stackable so potential buyers of these chairs – where stacking is a need or want for them – should double check that the chair they’re buying can stack.

Most suppliers will explicitly say that a chair is or isn’t stackable on their cross back chair product page – however some may have forgotten that detail.

The easiest way to tell if a cross back chair is stackable is by looking at the seat in the back corners. There should be a semi-circular notch out in each corner – where the stacking cross-back chair’s legs would nest.

There are a number of different folding tables on the market for hotels, banquet halls, party rental companies and other high-turnover industries where durable tables are not only a must, but a necessity.

What do Scratches Look Like on Aluminum Chiavari Chairs vs Resin Chiavari Chairs?

We had a potential customer pose a great question last week regarding aluminum Chiavari chairs and how they compare to resin Chiavari chairs in terms of scratching.

Any banquet hall, event venue, hotel or Rental Company, unfortunately, has to deal with scratches as a consequence of using event chairs. Knowing what the scratches will look like on the Chiavari chair you end up going with gives you the ability to plan what to do when scratches do occur.

Here’s how scratches appear on Aluminum Chiavari Chairs:

Scratched Aluminum Chiavari Chair

Aluminum Chiavari Chairs, when scratched, will show the silver metal underneath. If you have Silver Aluminum Chiavari Chairs this won’t make a huge difference as the colours will be similar, however, black, mahogany, gold, and white will all show scratches easily.

Here’s how scratches appear on our Resin Chiavari Chairs:

Scratched Resin Chivari Chair

Our resin Chiavari chairs have a similar colour resin underneath the exterior paint and gloss finish. If a scratch occurs, the scratch will minimally show. I specify our Chiavari chairs, particularly as we know there is other resin Chiavari chairs on the market that have a white resin core with exterior paint in black, gold, silver, or mahogany and a gloss finish. This is to bring the cost of the chair down as white resin is cheaper to produce than a coloured resin that better hides a scratch.
