Banquet chairs come in several sizes and styles, which is ideal for a custom fit for your special events. If you are focused on events that require rearranging, moving chairs in and out of storage, and shorter durations of use time, a smaller banquet chair might be just the thing for you. If you tend to set up a space and keep it more or less the same for each event, you might consider a larger chair for maximum comfort. For special events like weddings, the elegant yet compact Chiavari chair might be a smart choice to take your space or venue to the next level.

Depending on your venue or organizations style and the theme of your events, you have the choice of banquet chairs that are covered with fabric, vinyl, or those made of wood. Your most common events should be the largest factor in your final choice. If you tend to host mostly professional events, you might prefer the fabric-based chairs. For events serving food and drink, the vinyl chair cushion will provide the easiest cleanup and maintenance. If your venue hosts weddings or other special events, a classic chair material like wood would provide that special, elegant feel.

Each chair has a specific style that lends itself well to different types of events. The fabric-covered chairs are excellent for corporate conferences, church events, or other more serious events that require lengthy periods in the chair. These banquet chairs are flexible and can be used for professional events, weddings, or other types of events where you need to move chairs around while still looking sharp. Wooden Chiavari  chairs look fantastic at a beautiful wedding, banquets or other elegant event where style matters most.

Your budget will always be a large determining factor in which banquet chair you eventually choose. Always consider the highest quality chair you can afford, but if you’re tight on funds it's smart to consider smaller chairs and keep an eye out for sales, or buy in bulk.
