Padded Foldable Chairs

Our padded folding chairs are a great step up from plastic stackable chairs. Available in black and white in colour, these are a popular choice for many event types including wedding ceremonies, product launches, garden parties and other functions that require a more refined feel. Folding padded chairs can make an impact when styled, and when lined up together can create an elegant look.

Bar Stools

If your event is more of a cocktail function, where the majority of guests will stand and mingle, it's still a good idea to offer some light seating such as bar stools. Complimentary to bar tables, our bar stools are available for hire in a wide variety of colours, styles and designs such as tolix and wire. Ideally two to four stools around each round bar table will be sufficient.
