Commissioned in the earliest days for addressing the comforts of military leaders, they also evolved into ceremonial centerpieces, including thrones for kings. As time progressed along with the advantages of mobility, these space-saving pieces developed widespread use among royalty and commoners alike. The benefits were also appreciated among larger gatherings as increased comfort began to garner precedence.

Utility seating includes standard metal frames with options for upholstered seats and backs or colorful plastic insets. These are ideal choices for auditoriums, conventions, school libraries, churches or other organizations. Affordability makes them a practical solution for quantity purchases, plus they're among the easiest to set up or transport. We have included dollies for stacking that increases their appeal.

More formal or elegant occasions require a different approach. When you're charged with planning weddings or other special affairs, it's important to provide a beautiful landscape of seats that will provide comfort.
