Resin Chiavari Chairs:

  • Chairs weigh 13lbs each
  • 4mm thick resin and 1mm thick hollow steel frame support
  • Seams are virtually invisible
  • Resin is a similar colour to the chair coating colour and as such does not show scratches as easily as wood or aluminum (i.e. gold high gloss finish when scratched would show a gold toned core)
  • Solid colour causes party rental companies to make decision on chair based on current chair colour trend. (i.e. last year’s hot colour was mahogany Chiavari chairs. This year’s hot colour is gold Chiavari chairs)
  • Solid resin seat allowing for easy change out of cushions
  • 2 horizontal chair rails similar to the traditional Chiavari chair look
  • Resin Chiavari chairs can hold over 1000lbs making them an extremely strong chair
