New Trends in restaurant chairs

A minimalist, mid-century aesthetic is coming back in commercial interior design; the rustic, homey feel is also becoming increasingly popular. To attract customers, several pubs, cafes, and eateries have given a fresh spin on traditional concepts while still providing them with the best of both worlds. Customers might be pleased by a combination of old and new, as evidenced by current trends in restaurant furnishings.

When decorating a restaurant or giving it a makeover through renovation, one of the most crucial aspects to consider is the choice of chairs. Moreover, if you want it to be modern, you should choose the trending fashion by opting for upholstered chairs. These chairs oozes that cozy vibe and will give your customers a higher sense of relaxation.

Are you unsure of where to begin? Don't worry; we've got you covered with the newest styles in upholstered restaurant chairs, including those with iconic cantilevered shapes, needle legs, armrests in the Mid-Century Modern style, geometric prints in the style of the 1970s, and Vichy squares patterns. Which one would look best in your eatery?

Cantilever chairs

The famous Cesca chair, designed by the Hungarian modernist architect Marcel Breuer and named for his adopted daughter Francesca, is a constant inspiration for the cantilever chairs.

Previously, furniture had required a minimum of four legs. However, with Cantilever chairs' unconventional two-legged structure, they revolutionized the design world. They have a particularly unusual since their entire skeleton was made from a single piece of metal that had been shaped.

Tireno's cantilevered tubular steel frame and black powder-coated finishing make them an instant classic; thanks to the enduring popularity of geometric forms in the latest restaurant and interior design projects. The seat and back are upholstered in a modern and distinguished cloth in blue, maroon, or rust.

Upholstered and needle-legged chairs

When it comes to the interior design of a restaurant, you cannot go amiss with a timeless classic. The finest works of the prolific Mid-Century period are, like any great design, enduring. Their clean, uncluttered aesthetic, practicality, and absence of excess decoration make them an easy fit in any commercial setting.

The trend is distinguished by its tapering or needle-shaped legs, which are sometimes straight and, more often than not, positioned somewhat diagonally as if spreading outwards.

The tubular steel frame of the Inside upholstered chair is finished in black powder paint, and the seat and backrest are upholstered in brown, black, terracotta, or green for maximum comfort. Given these qualities, it is ideal for adorning upscale eateries.

Upholstered Chair with armrests

There is nothing quite like an armrest to boost the feeling of comfort of a chair. For this reason, these chairs are a natural fit in restaurants with  current trend of furnishing which makes customers feel incredibly at ease. With its unusual configuration and tubular steel frame coated in black powder paint, the Guilleny upholstered chair is a hit when it comes to styling restaurants with a polished and even somewhat lavish touch.

Its textile-upholstered seat and back and its original armrests with wooden features get extra points for the year's most sought-after quality: comfort. 

70’s style prints upholstered chairs 

A few weeks ago, Harper's Bazaar reported in their article "Modern vintage" aesthetics or how retro patterns from the 1960s and 1970s have won the fashion experts. The geometric, floral, and psychedelic designs that dominated back then have made their way from the runways to our closets this season.

Chairs like the Sacramento Caleido have a painted tubular steel frame and a burgundy and reddish upholstery design that, as the name suggests, is based on the asymmetrical geometric figures that project kaleidoscopes into view.

Vichy patterned chairs

Mango's new fall collection has prominent examples of Vichy-inspired designs that have become a significant trend this season. Judy Garland's dress in The Wizard of Oz (1939) popularized the traditional checkered design emblematic of the Provençal summer. Still, it wasn't until Brigitte Bardot's wedding dress in the 1950s that the pattern became widely popular. The iconic design by Jacques Esterel featured a white and pink Vichy print on a puffed skirt and fitted waist and cemented the print's place among fashion's most enduring patterns.

Chairs for restaurants like Sacramento Chic can be found with tubular steel construction covered in paint and a seat and back embroidered in a material that unmistakably recalls the usual Vichy squares. The pattern's neutral tones make it easy to pair with any shade.
