Resin Chiavari Chairs: Pros and Cons

Pros and Cons Resin Chiavari Chairs

Each event chair has a business case for or against them – some businesses love and swear by only wood Chiavari chairs while others want nothing to do with them. The same can be said for resin Chiavari chairs. Back in 2013 we made the decision to provide non-biased reviews of our products so that companies buying from us could make their own decisions based on their own business needs. Because of this, read on to see the pros and cons of resin Chiavari chairs:


  • 4mm thick resin and 1mm thick hollow steel frame support (ours has a steel frame to provide additional support and durability – not all resin Chiavari’s do though)
  • Seams are virtually invisible
  • Resin is a similar colour to the chair coating colour and as such does not show scratches as easily as wood or aluminum (i.e. gold high gloss finish when scratched would show a gold toned core)
  • Solid colour causes party rental companies to make decision on chair based on current chair colour trend. (i.e. last year’s hot colour was mahogany Chiavari chairs. This year’s hot colour is gold Chiavari chairs)
  • Solid resin seat allowing for easy change out of cushions
  • 2 horizontal chair rails similar to the traditional Chiavari chair look
  • Resin Chiavari chairs can hold over 1000lbs making them an extremely strong chair
  • Resin less likely to succumb to water damage


  • Generally more expensive than a wood or aluminum Chiavari chair – but also tend to last longer
  • Cannot be re-painted or re-stained as easily as a wood Chiavari
  • Chairs weigh 13lbs each – tend to weigh more than wood or aluminum – especially if there’s a steel core frame
  • Not all resin Chiavari chairs are the same chair – which leads to confusion in the marketplace
