Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Seat Co.’s Chiavari chair better than the competition?

All Chiavari Chairs are similar in design. The Chiavari name describes the style of chair, also known as “Tiffany Chair”; however, the most important differences are the materials used to manufacture the chair and of course the manufacturer. At Seat Co. we only manufacture high-quality steel and aluminum chairs. The primary reasons our customers prefer our products over the competition is the durability and quality of our Chiavari chairs.

Our Chiavari Chairs have the following attributes:

· 100% Welded Chairs

· Eco-Friendly

· 7 Year Warranty

· Lightweight

· High Scratch Resistance

· No Maintenance Required

· Indoor and Outdoor Use

· Premium UV Treated Paint

· North American Product

· Shipped in one Piece and Ready to Use

These attributes help your business save money, this means that you will receive a great return on your investment (ROI) in a short period of time. With Seat Co.’s steel and aluminum Chiavari chairs you won’t have to invest in maintenance, and those savings can be used to grow your business.

Which Chiavari chairs are better, Wood, Resin, Steel or Aluminum?

Wood chairs have the lowest price in the industry, but their quality is compromised, they are usually manufactured with softwood; therefore, the quality and durability of the Wood Chiavari chair are not a great long term investment.

Resin Chiavari chairs were the first chairs that were manufactured in order to replace Wood Chiavari chairs, but they do not look as good and are quite uncomfortable. Another major disadvantage to Resin Chiavari chairs is that the plastic tends to fade and dim with time and exposure to the sun. Most Resin Chiavari chairs come with joints made out of materials like wood or metal which tend to loosen up over a period of time. Another disadvantage is the weight of the chair, Resin chairs have been increasingly heavier due to the addition of reinforcements, which have been added to try and improve durability.

Seat Co.’s Steel and Aluminum Chiavari chairs are made with high quality materials that shine through in the lightness and durability of our chairs.

If I could buy Chiavari chairs much cheaper directly from China, why should I buy from Seat Co. instead?

The difference between Seat Co.´s Chiavari chairs and those manufactured in China factories is that our chairs are built to higher reliability and quality standards which took years of development and much investment and cooperation. It all comes down to “You get what you pay for”.

With good value raw materials and a production that is based on good value processes, you will get a good chair, but it will cost a little more.

Here are the advantages of buying from Seat Co.

· At Seat Co. we want satisfied customers

· At Seat Co. we are only satisfied with selling good value products that offer real value to our customers.

This is why at Seat Co. we do not cut corners when it comes to raw materials and manufacturing techniques, and this is why every chair that leaves Seat Co.´s manufacturing plant is examined by the staff to make sure that the quality levels that we advertise are being met.

With Seat Co. being an American company, we can be held accountable to our warranty; from experience we can assure you that it would be a long and possibly expensive process to try and hold a Chinese company to their warranty and in most cases the outcome is negative for the buyer.

With constant changes to the United States importing and exporting laws, you will experience unexpected delays and expenses when buying directly from Chinese companies. The US government continues to implement Chinese Imports tariffs.
