Know your… Chair Hire

Looking for chair hire? Find out more about all the kinds of chair hire we stock at Expo Hire

With so many different types of chairs for hire available on our website, sometimes it’s all a bit daunting as to what to choose. Do you need something to fit a specific need or style; or is budget your primary consideration? We’ve put together this guide to help you choose what you need quickly and get the most from your furniture hire.

Budget Chair Hire

If budget is your primary constraint, then cost is the be all and end all. There is absolutely nothing wrong with just wanting cheap chairs to sit on – and we can certainly help customers looking for chairs that don’t break the bank.

The cheapest chairs we have to offer are our folding chairs. These have strong plastic seats and metal legs,  and fold flat for ease of storage and movement. They might look a little bit utilitarian in comparison to our more expensive chairs, but they are comfortable to sit on and great for outdoor events as well as indoor.

We stock literally thousands of chairs enabling us to cater to even the biggest outdoor events. These chairs for hire are often used for large scale seating and are easy to set up quickly.

Banqueting Chair Hire

If you’re hosting a function or event where people are sitting to eat, then our banqueting chairs are what you are looking for. Our banqueting chairs come in a range of colours to help match an overarching style or theme.

Banqueting chairs can come in a variety of styles. One of the most commonly requested styles is “Chiavari”, which is based on a design from Italy. These chairs are built not only for elegance but also for strength, with every component of the chair being designed for the stress placed upon it. These chairs are made of wood and are designed to be stackable to make them easier to store and move around. We stock these chairs in a beautiful limewash colourway, offering a more natural look than painted chairs.

These chairs are particularly popular for weddings in summer and it's worth ordering early to prevent disappointment.

Conference Chair Hire

Meetings and conferences often require guests and delegates to sit for prolonged periods of time. This means that a conference chair not only has to be strong and durable, but comfortable too.

The standard conference chair hire we offer is our black padded chair. These chairs have legs made of metal and feature a generously padded foam seat which ensures that they are comfy to sit upon for long periods of ti,e. They are designed to look professional and business-like as opposed to the elegance of a banqueting chair.

Our black padded conference chairs stack easily. This is essential for storage and movement, as often rooms need to be reset or changed around between sessions. We have a large stock of these chairs available and can cater to the largest events and conferences.

Designer Chair Hire

The top end of our furniture hire offering are our designer chairs. We have a wide variety of chairs based on some classic designs such as the Barcelona chair by Mies van der Rohe and the Tolix chair by Xavier Pauchard.

We have various styles of designer chair available in different colours to match the theme and aesthetic of your event. You can choose to have chairs in all the same colour or in a mixture, whichever is best for you.

If you have any specific questions about our designer chairs or any other chairs we have for hire get in touch with us via our live chat feature. Our team will be happy to help advise you further so you get the right chairs for you.
