Reception/Guest Chairs - Most reception and guest seating options are more affordable than an ergonomic office chair with the minimal need for adjustability. A good reception chair or guest chair may cost no more than $75, if you are searching for a sturdy chair that will fit the average person. Prices on reception chairs increase with more trendy designs and fabrics, however these chairs are not necessarily better. Keep in mind the client or customer that will be spending time in your guest chairs as most accommodate specific weight capacities of 250 lbs. or less. Specialty guest chairs that are more durable and constructed of stronger frames can be purchased to accommodate heavier users, but will be more expensive due to the high quality materials.
That question was asked of me recently by a pastor we were working with. He had contacted us regarding the worship seating needs of his church, he was operating with a very tight budget, and he wanted a church chair that featured a high degree of quality. As we conversed, I suggested one chair solution that we have placed in several churches that performs very well, possesses great quality and is easy on the budget. The pastor though, even though he loved the price and was pleased with the specifications of the chair, uttered the words above.
A church chair is then finally a chair that works for your church in the worship space it is placed in. For example, there are churches that because of a limited amount of square footage in their worship area desire to squeeze as many chairs as possible into that area. It may be that a worship chair a bit narrower than the standard 20" wide chair is the one that works for them. Another church that may be holding their worship service in a room that also serves as a space for other purposes throughout the week has a need to stack their chairs at least once each week. It may be that a worship chair that is lighter in weight, handles easier and stores compactly is the chair that works for them. And yet another church needs chairs that will work both in auditorium style seating in rows and around tables. It may be that a "hybrid" chair is the chair that needs to be purchased. Please know the reality once again is this has little with the appearance of your church chair. Instead it simply has to do with what chair can serve multiple purposes for your church.
