Stackable chair: a little revolution

Chairs have a drawback: they take up space and when many chairs are needed to welcome clients or guests, it’s not the most practical. It is still true with designer chairs, which sometimes are bulkier than classic chairs.

The first models of stackable chairs appeared at the start of the 20th century. When released, the stackable chair received a grand prize at the Universal Exhibition in Paris for its ingenuity. 

Designers immediately jumped on this revolutionary idea to create models that have become some of the most sought after today. It was a little later, in 1960, that the first stackable chairs in plastic were born, one of the most widely used materials todays.

Choosing you stackable chairs well

Do you want to choose a stackable chair but don’t know how to choose from all the available models? Follow our advice to find the ideal model.


Stackable chairs are available in different materials.

  • Plastic is one of the more commonly used materials for stackable chairs. Easy to care for and very resistant, they can be used outside as well as inside. The Belli chair and the Monsters chair are some of the best known of the stackable plastic chairs.
  • Wood: sober and warm, wood brings a particular character to your room. More classic than plastic, it is generally better suited to indoors than outdoors, as it is more sensitive to the weather.
  • Faux leather or natural leather: these two materials add a luxurious touch to your interior. Less expensive and easier to maintain, faux leather is an excellent option if you don’t opt for natural leather which is more fragile, but incomparable finish.
  • Metal: metal is often used for footrests, but stackable chairs are also sometimes found made completely in metal: the Lix stackable chair is an example.


The comfort of a chair is an important element and also depends on the intended use of the chair. A living room chair would be expected to be more comfortable than a garden chair. In any case, be attentive to the comfort of your stackable chair so that you and your guests always feel at ease. Fortunately, a lot of designer chairs are also very comfortable, which combines style and wellbeing.


Do you want a stackable chair for indoors, outdoors, or both? The adaptability of the chair is an important criterion, and it would be a shame to choose a model that doesn’t match your practical needs. Materials such as plastic, metal and synthetic wicker would be generally better adapted to outdoors than wood or leather.

Stackable chairs: the ideal choice for professionals
