Event Chairs: Resin vs. Wood

March 1, 2016

A common question from customers looking to buy event chairs is: Which is better, resin or wood? Unfortunately, there is no black-and-white answer. Instead, the answer is: It depends.

Both wood and resin chairs have their place in the event world. Both are solidly built and will last for many years.

The ultimate decision on which chair to choose comes down to the chair’s intended use and color choice.

If the chairs will be used outdoors, then resin chairs will stand up better to weather.

If you want a traditional look, then wood chairs are for you. The richness and feel of wood are unlike other materials.

Do you desire fruitwood, natural or distressed white colors? These colors are only available with a wooden chair.

Event Chairs: Resin vs. Wood

Resin Chair Pros

  • A steel-core resin chair is the strongest in the entire worldwide marketplace.
  • Scratches and dings are harder to see with fusion resin chairs because the material is the same color throughout the chair.
  • Lower maintenance.
  • The Material is UV resistant, reducing fading and breakdown of resin.

Wood Chair Pros

  • Wood chairs are lighter than resin.
  • The traditional feel of wood is still popular.
