Shelby Williams Adds 10 New Styles of Hospitality Banquet Seating

Model 8312 – Couture De Light
Model 8755 – Tufgrain®

Shelby Williams, a leading manufacturer of table and seating solutions for the hospitality, senior living and foodservice markets, expands one of the industry’s broadest lines of banquet seating with 10 new models. The new Couture De Light, Comfort De Luxe, and Tufgrain® banquet chairs feature a strong contemporary design backed by exceptional durability and comfort.

The latest offerings from Shelby Williams reflect the increasingly essential role of banquet seating in communicating the core value of a hospitality facility, according to Steve Cohen, corporate vice president of sales and marketing.

“A well-designed banquet space will drive bookings for the room itself, as well as overnight stays at hotels, generating additional revenue and maximizing square footage. For country clubs, banquet areas are important for member acquisition and retention, and deliver significant income through weddings and other functions,” he says. “Our seating is designed to work equally well for social and business events and can be easily customized to fit seamlessly into the overall aesthetic.”

Model 8310 – Couture De Light

Aluminum construction makes the new Couture De Light banquet chairs durable yet lightweight for easy movability and provides clean, architectural lines for a fresh design. Tapered legs both enable easy stacking and provide an upscale contemporary look compared to a traditional banquet chair. Other features include powder coat frames, double umbrella glides, optional action backs, and optional ganging. The aluminum frames are 100% recyclable.

The latest Comfort De Luxe banquet chairs feature a more formal design, four-inch foam seat for a plush feel, and come in aluminum and steel frames. The three new styles of Tufgrain® banquet seating combine the look of wood with durability. Tufgrain® can be specified in four realistic wood grain finishes on a metal frame for a lighter and stronger chair than solid wood.
