The climate in Brisbane lends itself to outdoor living and dining, in particular, so as a cafe owner it’s essential to have an attractive outdoor dining area that will bring customers to your cafe. With so many seating options available it can be difficult to know what chairs to choose but from our experience we recommend chairs that stack. There are many benefits of stackable chairs which you may not be aware of, so let’s dive in and take a closer look.

6 Benefits of stackable chairs


Chairs that can be stacked vertically provide many benefits to cafes and other venues such as conference halls and banqueting rooms. To be honest, there’s even a place for them in the home.

One of the main advantages of chairs that stack on top of each other sometimes up to 10 high and often more, is that they take up far less room than non-stacking chairs. While this style of chair was once considered to be cheap and somewhat inferior to a traditional dining chair, with modern innovative manufacturing methods and countless styles, stackable chairs are more elegant, quirky, and fun.


Another of the benefits of stackable chairs is their versatility and ability to blend into numerous decors and themes (commercial and residential) both indoors and outside. Created from a variety of materials including nylon rattan, polypropylene, aluminium and metal in limitless styles, sizes, and colours, there’s sure to be a stackable chair to suit any space.


Stackable chairs by their very nature are lightweight and easy to move around. Not only do they stack vertically but because they are light, it’s easy for staff to move them around to suit customer needs and it also means they’re easily portable if you need to place them in a van to transport them to a venue, for instance.


The majority of stackable chairs are manufactured from polypropylene using a single mould injection procedure. This enables them to be mass produced at a very low cost and sold on at an affordable price too. What’s more, since this type of chair is usually sold in bulk, it brings the price down even further


As stackable chairs are more commonly used outdoors, they’re designed to be weather resistant and UV treated to withstand the harsh Australian climate. Often styles feature open mesh designs that allow the rain to wash through avoiding any puddling

Low maintenance

Invariably, outdoor stackable chairs are easy to maintain. Most polypropylene chairs are made from a single piece of plastic with no joints that could crack or split in the heat. Typically all that’s needed to keep them clean is a quick wipe over with a damp cloth and a mild cleansing agent. They’re even quicker to clean if you line them up in a row on your terrace and hose them down with water and allow them to air dry.

As you can see, there are many benefits of stackable chairs. Here at Cafe Furniture Brisbane, we stock an extensive range of outdoor stackable chairs, some of which look equally as good indoors if you’re after a seamless flow from one area of your cafe to another.
