Steeped in history

Bentwood cafe chairs have decorated cafes and bistros since the 1900s. With a still revolutionary steam-bending technology, furniture makers were able to bend wood pieces into organic curved shapes that are usually unheard of. At The Cafe Furniture Company, we can help outfit your commercial dining space with our collection of traditional and contemporary bentwood pieces that are stylish and beautifully crafted. From our Art Deco Avola chair to something more traditional, we have a complete range of Bentwood chairs designed specifically to match any theme.

Stylish & Durable

Bentwood seating is not only stylish, the way it’s been manufactured ensures that it can withstand the harsh rigors of multiple foot traffic and last a lifetime. Additionally, the style and structure of bentwood dining chairs looks better with wear as they eventually take on an aged patina. Today, not all restaurant chairs are built to last quite like the Bentwood chair, providing its popularity for over a century.

The best style for commercial use

Bentwood dining chairs will look right at home in any upscale cafe or bistro. This chair is almost always crafted from solid wood and reinforced joints. As a result, Bentwood cafe chairs will still look fantastic after years of service, hold up to the demands of multiple services and don’t require as much maintenance as other furniture styles.
