In the past decades, we have witnessed a surge in demand for flexible, multi-purpose, and multi-functional workspace. When we are designing a multi-functional office, different types of stacking chairs become a popular option.

A well-designed, safe and comfortable stacking chair does lighten up your day, increase productivity, and bring back customer visits. In this article, we will discuss how to choose a good stacking chair and where to buy a good one.

Why Stacking Chairs are Essential for an Office

Stacking chairs are temporary seating chairs that can be snugly stacked on top of one another for transporting and storage. They offer excellent flexibility and easy storage for the office. Here are the main benefits of stacking chairs:


Most stacking chairs are made of plastic which is cheaper and generally unbreakable. Their four strong legs allow for continuous moving, shifting, and stacking. Thus, it is more durable and cost-effective than other types of chairs.

Easy to maintain:

Unlike wooden chairs that can develop cracks and metal chairs rust, plastic chairs are generally waterproof and require little maintenance. They allow minimal cleaning effort and can be used for both indoor and outdoor use.

Space saving:

A great reason to choose stacking chairs as an office necessity is that they can quickly free up some space.

Stacking chairs can be stacked up in a dolly and moved around across the room. They are usually stored in a closet or the corner of a room before and after an event to create proper spaces.

How to Choose Different Types of Stacking Chairs as Office Chairs

Stacking chairs are the best seating option for multi-purpose office rooms. With the growing demand for stacking chairs, there are now many varieties of stacking chairs. Choosing the right stacking chairs for an office can be quite frustrating.

To simplify the decision-making process, let’s focus on the two most important aspects: functionality and features.


Short-term or Long-term Seating

How long you sit in a stacking chair depends on the purpose of the event you are attending. If you need to work all day long at a fixed desk, then a task chair or well-padded stacking chair may be the best option. On the contrary, if the chair is to be used for temporary gatherings such as meetings, conferences, seminars or banquets, then stackable chairs will be the best option.

Common Area or Private Usage

In any common areas where the conversations between users are short and temporary, movable and stackable chairs would be a great choice. At high-traffic common areas such as an employee cafeteria, flexible seating is essential because it allows workers to relax and socialize during the longest break of the day.


Sturdy Material:

Stacking chairs should be built for durability to sustain frequent stacking and to accommodate people of all sizes. Plastic resin seats are the best option because they are impact-resistant and require less efforts to maintain. Moreover, resin prohibits the growth of germs and bacteria while providing an easy-clean surface for simplified care and upkeep.

Seat width and depth

Any office chair seat should have enough width and depth to support your body comfortably. The seat depth is measured from the front to the back of the seat. It needs to be large enough so that you can sit comfortably with your back against the backrest of the chair. You should be able to distribute your body weight evenly across the seat.

Lumbar and back support

Lumbar support or lower back support is crucial in a good stacking chair. The human lumbar spine has an inward curve that flattens when we slouch our back.

Not having the right lumbar support weakens our lower spine structures. The best stacking chairs have a lumbar adjustment feature that supports our lower spine and keeps us in a good, healthy posture for hours.

Ganging chair glides

The ganging chair glides are designed to connect chairs for easy movement and seating. Stacking chairs can be connected with the bottom or side glides to make straight neat rolls.

These glides also prevent the chairs from moving around and damaging the floor surface.
