Buying factors

How will you use your visitor chairs?

You need to ask some fundamental questions before you can build a list of requirements for the chair. Here are some common ones:

• What are your guest seating needs?
• What is your budget?
• What type of guests or visitors enter your work place?
• Where will the chairs be placed?
Once you begin to answer these questions you’ll have a good idea of what buying decisions you need to make. If you are still confused then you can give us a call for more information.


You need to think about the backrest so that you don’t buy chairs that lead to back pain. For example, the lack of lumbar support may lead to slouching and that’s bad for the back. Arm rests are also a good idea because they allow the arms to be positioned in a way that relaxes the shoulders. However, they don’t have to be adjustable since the guests sitting down are typically not using a keyboard, and generally not seated for long periods of time.
Comfort is also important so look for soft materials that allow guests to feel relaxed. This ensures they don’t feel agitated or frustrated by having to wait for too long. Think about the type of seat you’d like to sit on yourself and you’ll end up with comfortable chairs.

The good news is that you can get away with less expensive seating for guests because they won’t usually be sitting for long in most cases. Therefore, a lack of ergonomics is unlikely to lead to injury. You need to sit for long periods every day before the negative effects of a poor seating begin to formalize. However, you should still make an effort to purchase the best seating options that fit in your budget, particularly if you’re blending with existing executive office furniture and reception areas.


Consider the total amount of guest seating that you need, the space available, and the size of your budget. This allows you to not run out of budget before you’re able to buy enough seats to meet your needs. Fortunately, we offer bulk pricing so you can get the biggest bang for your buck.

Build quality

The build quality should be strong if you are buying for high-traffic areas such as a busy reception area, or doctors surgery etc. Examine the website images to get a sense of the materials and how they are put together. Also, look at the product description for information on the length of the warranty period. Longer warranties should give you confidence that the chair is built to last for a long time. We have a very comprehensive – factory backed warranty period of between 3 and 10 years.

Note that you’ll need to assemble some chairs, but with the included instructions that’s a straightforward process.

Visual aesthetics

Does the chair style matter? It depends on the type of brand that you have. Some brands rely on their image more than others to get sales. As a rule of thumb you should try and choose chairs that blend in with other furniture pieces and the interior décor.

Black leather, or man-made leather is a typical choice that looks good for most guests and is fairly comfortable too. However, you may want to go for colourful fabric options if you want to portray a more playful brand image.

A. It’s a good idea to offer a small table so people can use it to read magazines amongst other uses. The table can be small so it shouldn’t be problematic to place in areas with limited space.

Q. Do I need guest chairs with arm rests?

A. If you’re on a tight budget you can look at some of our models without arm rests. They are good enough for waiting areas where guest need to sit for only a short time.
