Different chair rental options explained

We understand that when it comes to planning an event, the type of chairs you need won't be that high on your agenda...but it's certainly worth some consideration, depending upon the type of event you are organising.  After all, it's definitely not the case that one style of chair suits every event.

The type of chair hire required for a conference is very different to the style of chair needed for a wedding, so you can see why you would need to pay this some attention, though no doubt some way through the event planning process.

So, let's take a look at some different events and what chairs might be suitable.


We've discussed this previously, and there's no doubt that Chiavari chairs remain the #1 option for couples when it comes to their wedding chairs.  These are the classic design that you'll find on Instagram and in glossy bridal magazines.  The great thing about Chiavari chairs - and, often, other wooden stackable chairs - is that you can choose your seat pad colour from our extensive range.  This means that you can keep things neutral, or tie in your chairs with your more vibrant colour scheme if this is what you have in mind.


Professionals events such as conferences often require delegates to be seated for prolonged periods of time, and so comfort and style are needed.  This is where ISO chairs come into their own, which are polished metal frames with cushioned seats and backs.  You can also hire linking ISO chairs which, as their name would suggest, link together so that straight rows of chairs can be maintained, especially when there is large 'traffic' movements of people in and out of the conference or seminar area.

Corporate banqueting & hospitality

Again, both style and comfort are needed here, with the company wanting to put their best foot forward, which also includes furniture hire!  Why not check out our Rio chairs, which are available in a variety of different colour options.  Choose from purple, olive green, biscuit, blue and grey fabrics, and also white leather and grey leather for a small additional fee.  These look fantastic!  If you're going down an industrial theme, then Tolix chairs and scaffold tables are the perfect fit, with their base metal appearance.  And let's not forget our Calcutta banqueting chairs (pictured) in black or natural wood, both of which provide a great finish to your event dining space.

Outdoor event

And let's not forget chairs for outdoor events, which are plentiful around the UK during the year.  Of course, you could choose affordable patio chairs (and tables) which would do a job.  Or, you could get a bit more creative and go for picnic benches and tables, hardwood chairs and armchairs, and even deckchairs for those beach party events!

Whatever event chair hire you need, don't hesitate to browse the complete range online at Event Hire UK - we have the full range of event furniture hire at great prices, all backed up by exemplary customer service. You can hire securely online 24/7 or, if you prefer, you can call our customer service team who will be delighted to speak to you in more detail about your requirements.  Either way, we very much look forward to hearing from you soon.
