When planning an event, chairs are often overlooked and most people are not even aware of the different types of chairs that exist. If you are planning a party and need to rent chairs, the following information will help you with the process by breaking down the different types you can choose from:

Poly chairs

These chairs are lightweight and stackable and are available from every rental company. They are the least expensive type of chair you can rent and are generally available in black, charcoal, or white. 

Resin chairs

These chairs are sturdier than poly chairs and generally come with a cushion, so they are considered more comfortable. A lot of people refer to this type of chair as a garden or wedding chair and are available in wood colour, as well as white and black. 

Chiavari chairs

This type of chair is also commonly referred to as bamboo chairs or wedding chairs and is the most expensive type of chair you can rent. Rental companies generally carry them in a number of different colours, including black, white, gold, and silver. They can be costly, however, their elegance is truly remarkable and these chairs will impact the design aspect of any event and transform it from simple to stunning. If you want to make a statement with your décor, this is the option to choose.

Conference chairs

These come with thick padding because they are specifically made with the intention of people sitting on them for very long periods of time. They are sometimes called banquet chairs and placed in hotels for weddings, conferences, and galas. They are affordable to rent, comfortable, and can be stacked. 

These are the four most common types of chairs that are rented for events, although other options do exist and rental companies can provide you with more choices if you are looking for something different. You can consider chair covers, which are also available for rent and can be placed over the options mentioned above. Pricing will range and its best to do the math because if the covers are going to cost as much as Chiavari chairs, then it may not make sense; however, your decision should be based on the theme and style of your event. 

Other unique options include barstools, king and queen chairs, ghost chairs, and antique chairs. Your budget and décor preferences will help you with your decision as will a reputable rental company.
