  • Damp proof – The sealed surface and edges prevent any damp from entering beneath the surface of the table top even when tables are left outside.

  • Minimum maintenance – All that is required is a wipe with a wet cloth and mild detergent to keep your table tops looking clean and pristine.

Tolix Stools And Chairs – Aren’t They So Last Year?

tolsYou might be forgiven for thinking that the humble Tolix bar stool no longer has a place in 21st century café’s, restaurants and bistro’s but you’d be wrong. The fact is that hard wearing non-fussy, minimalist furniture is making a comeback and instead out has gone the ‘decorative for decorative’s sake’ style of seating that we’ve grown accustomed to. But why do Tolix stools and chairs remain popular?

They’ve stood the test of time

You may or may not know that Tolix stools have been at the forefront of cafe furniture since 1934 when Xavier Pauchard first unleashed his simple design on the world. Before long café’s and bistro’s al over the world from Paris to Peking were buying then up. Although sales have dropped slightly since their heyday in the 40’s and 50’s, they’re still produced in the same way using the same methods. For anyone purchasing these stools or chairs today, they’re buying into a legacy which isn’t likely to go out of business anytime soon. As a result, replacements and parts (in the unlikely event that you need them) will never be a problem.

They’re so flexible

Have you noticed how so called ‘stunningly designed chairs’ don’t seem to last? That’s because fashions and tastes come and go. What was once seen as head turning and innovative might now be seen as “What were they thinking?” Conversely a Tolix stool or chair isn’t likely to offend anyone. It’s never going to win any intricate design awards but that’s not what it’s about. Instead it’s rugged, it’s reliable, in fact it’s a real chair of the people! Because of its less-than-fussy design it has the ability to fit in with a wide variety of cafe styles from rustic chic to contemporary industrial. It’s this overall flexibility and willingness to fit in that makes the Tolix stool and chair such a great buy.

Build quality

If you’re under the impression that a Tolix stool looks rugged and well made, well that’s because it is. Just like a Japanese car it’s solid and reliable and won’t let you down! There are no fancy curves or decorative ornateness here. Instead, good old fashioned chunks of metal that create solid lines and struts are the order of the day. In fact if you look on Ebay, Craigslist and even Etsy you’ll find a whole host of original Tolix stools for sale. Sure they might need a lick of paint, but chances are they’ll be in their original state of design with no repairs. How many other styles of chair can you say that about?

In truth, having cafe furniture that’s been 80 years in the making, that still fits in with today’s designs and styles, and that’s built to last for another 80 years or more, has to be a great overall investment in your business and besides that, your customers will love them too.

Discovering The Benefits Of Outdoor Seating

aluminium rattan chairWhile it’s true that having an outdoor seating area can increase your bottom line there are also a host of other benefits to having a well-maintained, attractive outdoor location where passers by can grab a glass of something cold and simply sit and watch the world go by. Let’s take a closer look at some of them.

Gets you noticed

There’s nothing that gets your venue noticed more than a well designed and attractive outdoor seating area. You might for example be situated a little off the beaten track and not on a main thoroughfare and for this reason many people might not know you exist. However develop an attractive, head turning outside space with stylish furniture and comfortable seating and it’s guaranteed to attract people, especially if the weather’s great.

New customers are more inclined to try your establishment

There’s something psychological about actually entering a venue especially if you’re a new customer. After all you might not know what to expect, so how do you know you’ll like the food, coffee, or even the décor. Besides, once you’ve walked in you’re kind of committed and it’s very hard to walk out again. For this reason some people prefer to stick with their regular haunts. By having an outside terrace area it’s a good way to entice new customers into trying your food or drink while still being in familiar surroundings. Think of your outside space as a way of making it easy for customers to sample what you have to offer.

More opportunities for running special events

Once you’ve made the most of your outside seating areas and have developed a regular clientele, it gives you more scope and indeed space to really get your name out there and develop your business further. For example during the summer months why not consider hosting live music sessions or maybe hold a special barbecue, or even a beer festival? Clearly with the spacial advantage you now have, it becomes much easier to attract larger numbers of people.

People will linger longer

If it’s a nice sunny day, many people will be far more inclined to linger longer especially if the outside seating area is in a prominent place where there’s a lot of interest. Most people love to people watch and as a result one cup of coffee can easily lead to another and before you know it you’ve increased your takings significantly.

Why Choose Isotop Tables For Your Cafe Venue

Isotop table in BombayLet’s face it, new cafe furniture doesn’t come cheap, so if your furniture needs replacing or you’re looking to furnish a new venue, then you might want to opt for Isotop tables. They’re incredibly popular and not without good reason. Let’s take a closer look.

Built to last – No really!

In your search for cafe tables you’ll undoubtedly come across many types of cafe furniture that are supposedly built to last. Now this may or may not be true, but when it comes to Isotop tables, they really are virtually indestructible. They’re made using a pioneering technique which originated in Germany. This involves using multiple layers of thin composite which are bound with a hard-setting resin and pressed firmly together under immense pressure. Finally they’re kiln dried to create a super-strong table that won’t scratch, mark, or stain. If this isn’t enough they’re also heat proof which means that hot dishes can be put directly down on top of them without any problems. Because they’ve been both UV treated and waterproofed Isotop tables aren’t liable to fade, crack, warp, or rot if kept outside for long periods of time. So they’re pretty flexible too. If you’re looking for a practical furniture solution, then it really doesn’t get much better than an Isotop table.

They’ve been around a bit!

Isotop tables aren’t anything new and in this world of throw-away businesses this is definitely a good thing. The company have been going strong for over 20 years and as such they’ve amassed a huge database of customers all over the world. They also have a very good supply network, meaning you’ll never have to wait too long for stock. What about spare parts? In the unlikely event that you do need spare parts for your tables then there’s more of a guarantee that the company will still be in business, as opposed to a lesser known start-up company that may have folded before you need any parts. In this case older is most definitely better.

Fancy an Isotop table? Take your pick!
