Chairs That Can Be Hired In Sydney

Got a special event or occasion coming up and stuck figuring out what types of chairs to hire? We’ve put together a summary guide of the types of chair hire available in Sydney at Chair Hire Co.

Tiffany Chairs

You’ll probably recognise the Tiffany Chair from other events you’ve attended, or in professional photographs. The classic Tiffany Chair suits any room and effortlessly adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any styled event. It’s also light weight, stackable and highly affordable to hire. The most common colours of the Tiffany Chair are white, black, silver, gold and clear and they also come with a removable padded cushion.

It’s also incredibly easy to style and add touches to the Tiffany Chair. A simple sash or ribbon, adorning some beads or lace, or even the simple touch of hanging some flowers on the edges.

Tiffany Chairs are a bit slimmer than some of our other chair hire options, usually 91.5cm high, 36cm wide and 37cm deep. The padded cushion and sturdy structure makes the Tiffany Chair extremely comfortable, however you may prefer to consider a bigger chair hire option if you have varied guests.

The Bentwood Chair

The widest of chair hires available is the Bentwood Chair which is 41cm wide, 45cm deep and 88cm tall. The Bentwood Chair is popularly referred to as the ‘Chanel Chair’ due to its round back shape. The Bentwood Chair is very sturdy, providing a comfortable choice for guests who will be seating for prolonged periods of time. It’s timeless elegance and style also looks sophisticated in any event room.


The Bentwood Chair is most commonly hired for weddings, birthday parties, christenings, bar mitzvahs, corporate and special occasion events.


The Folding Chair

Don’t be deceived by its simplicity, and how beautiful folding chairs look for event hire. Importantly, the folding chair is extra comfortable with its tilted back support and padded cushion. At 78cm tall, 48cm wide and 42cm deep, folding chairs are light-weight, easy to store and manoeuvre, and can be styled to make the most basic of event settings looking chic.


Tolix Chair Hire

If you are looking for a more modern atmosphere for your event, and comfort is high on your priority list, the Tolix Chair is your perfect choice to hire.

Tolix chair hire


The Tolix Chair comes in a range of colours that can be mix and matched to suit any event. This includes black, red, yellow, green (lime), blue, purple, silver, white and orange. Suitable for weddings, corporate and special occasion events, the Tolix Chair is one of the most versatile to hire.

And whilst it might seem that the Tolix Chair is a bit more clunky, its actually in line with other chair sizes being 78cm tall, 36cm wide and 37cm deep.


Conference Chairs

If you’re planning a conference event, comfort is your first priority for attendees. Conference chairs are the most popular chair hire for corporate and all day function events. They’re easy to set-up and pack down, and most importantly they are the most comfortable for guests who will be sitting for long periods of time.

Our corporate conference chairs can hold up to 150kg are finished in navy blue which adds a sophisticated and professional look to any room. The high back support adds extra comfort for extended seating sessions so you can be confident your guests are comfortable.

Plastic Function Chairs

If you’re looking for a chair that’s reliable, easy to set up and maximum comfort, our plastic chairs are the best quality available to hire in Sydney. Holding up to 150kg, plastic chairs are easily stackable, extremely comfortable, and are one of our most popular chair hire products. Suitable for indoor and outdoor events, our plastic chairs come in white, grey and blue. With sturdy back support, we’d recommend plastic chairs if your event has older or less mobile guests.

Don’t be misled into how great plastic chairs can also look with a simple sash, ribbon or decoration.

It can be a little overwhelming when it comes to choosing chair hire for your wedding day, especially if you are looking to hire several for different uses throughout the day. This article summarises the most popular chair hire options for specific uses on your wedding day. Keep in mind that most chairs can be used for multiple purposes, this is just highlighting the most popular.

Wedding ceremony chair hire

For most wedding receptions Tiffany Chairs, Bentwood Chair and Folding Chairs are hired. These are the most picturesque chairs for your ceremony and look beautiful on their own, or with some floral arrangements down the aisle.

White Plastic Function Chairs are also a popular choice for hire, especially if your ceremony is outdoors and you don’t plan on it taking too long. These are a sturdy option, being able to carry up to 150kg.

Cocktail hour wedding hire

Whilst most of your pre-reception cocktail hour in Brisbane will likely be spent standing and mingling, it’s always advisable to provide some seating for your guests. Having mixed seating during cocktails generally sets the best ambience, and is a sure way to cater for all of your guests. Most cocktail hours will have some basic high tables and chairs and some lower options too such as benches and couches, or a few round tables and folded chairs.

Reception chair wedding hire

It’s hard to go wrong with hiring any of our available chairs for your wedding reception. When the whole room comes together, and you have a suite of chairs arranged throughout, it looks better than you could have imagined in all your planning. Tiffany Chairs look the most classic when together in a room, the Folding Chair has a more classic modern feel and the Bentwood Chair is a more sturdy structure, being the widest of chairs available. For a modern and more sophisticated look, we love the range of Victorian Chairs.

Similar to cocktail hour chair hire, it’s a nice touch to have some other chairs available throughout the space for once everyone has finished eating and will be dancing and mingling. A few high tables and bar stools are easy to place around, and if you have the space, an area with some ottomans or couches is great to offer for guests to relax.
