Reclaimed Style Plain Back Restaurant Booth

Restaurant Booths

Rachel wanted to make sure her guests enjoyed their experience so she installed plain back restaurant booths upholstered in fine Caribbean blue vinyl, providing her customers with both privacy and comfort. Made in the US, the dining booths come with boxed seat frames made of reclaimed style wood. The reclaimed wood blends well with the flooring, which also has a reclaimed wood look similar to what one might see on an old, rural barn giving the booths an authentic country look. The booths, which are made of premium, commercial strength padded foam are very comfortable and fit in perfectly with the rustic decor.
Vertical Slat Wood Restaurant Chair

Restaurant Chairs

For additional seating she chose elongated vertical slats restaurant chairs. The chairs have a wood frame in a dark finish which blends in well with the wood floors and the decor. The chairs were upholstered in Caribbean blue vinyl padded seats, matching the restaurant booths. Their classic look fits in well with the restaurant’s look and feel while also allowing for more flexibility when planning seating arrangements in case Rachel needed to reconfigure the seating for special events. The chairs are built for durability and meant to withstand the heavy demands of a busy restaurant.
