Hotel Furniture

Hotel furniture is needed for public areas, including reception, lounge, dining and bar areas, and private spaces, mainly bedrooms. Hotel furniture can also be needed for meeting rooms, conference/wedding suite as well as spas, pool and outdoor areas. The Contract Chair Company can provide furniture for all of these spaces.

Well-chosen hotel reception and hotel lounge furniture provides a good opportunity to emphasise a hotel’s design theme. Other than design, considerations include comfort, robustness and maintenance. It’s often a surprise to realise the importance of the design of the back of seating - which is often the first thing guests see.

Hotel restaurants face identical challenges to independent restaurant operators (see our Restaurant Tables & Chairs Buyer’s Guide) and also must ensure the furniture complements the hotel as a whole. 

In terms of Hotel Table Sizes the right table size depends on how many covers are required on each table and what the table is used for. Drinking requires less space than quick meals; fine dining requires the most space, to allow enough room for side plates and additional crockery & cutlery. For more info read our Hospitality Table Size Guide here.

Hotel bedroom furniture usually consists of a desk chair, anything from a stool to a swivel chair, as well as at least one occasional chair. Our usual request is for a chair that makes a design statement but doesn’t have a large space footprint.

Outdoor hotel furniture can include dining furniture and outdoor lounge seating, compact dining sets for balconies as well as sun loungers and other spa furniture.

Conference and wedding furniture usually has to be robust and easily stored - some chairs are stackable ten high.
