A Guide to the Best Selling Products at Richardson's Furniture

Richardson Seating Furniture

At Richardson's Furniture, we know that you want to provide your customers with the best. When they sit down at your restaurant, their focus should be on your amazing food and customer service. They shouldn't be distracted by an uncomfortable or poorly designed chair.

We have many different seating options available, so you can customize your guest experience. Keep reading for a list of some of our best-selling products and why they are the right choices for your restaurant.

What Makes a Best Selling Chair?

If you're buying furniture for your restaurant, here are some of the qualifications you should look for:

  • Durability
  • Cleanability
  • Comfort
  • Ability to store or move chairs
  • Aesthetic appeal

Restaurant chairs see a high level of traffic every day. In the course of a week, dozens or even hundreds of people could sit in the same chair. So above all else, your furniture needs to be durable.

Part of durability is cleanability. Can you easily clean each part of the chair?

Use this simple test: is there any meal that comes out of your kitchen that would permanently damage your chair if you spilled a dish on it? If the answer is yes, you need to find a more resilient chair. 

But don't focus only on how cleanable a chair is. It also must be comfortable enough that your guest enjoys sitting there while they eat their meal.

You will also undoubtedly want to store or move your chairs. Think about these things when you make your purchase.

Last but not least, your chairs should have high aesthetic appeal. They are part of the image presented to your customer. By selecting the right chair, you build your brand.

Now that we know what to look for let's break down some of our top-selling chairs and stools.

5 Channel Back Diner Chair

This chair is perfect for anyone looking to create a retro look in their restaurant or diner. What's more, these chairs are made new, largely by hand. You can hark back to older times without having to resort to older chairs.

This diner chair is two-toned. While our primary style is US394 Adobe White and US393 Black, we can customize the color scheme to fit your restaurant's theme or aesthetic. The seat and edges of the back are the primary color, while the five channels on the back use the accent color.

The five channels on the chair's back add texture and comfort to the style. We sew these channels in by hand, so they are customizable and high quality.

You can choose between a waterfall style seat or a box style seat. The difference is in the stitching pattern only. Both seat choices are two inches thick for maximum customer comfort.

The seat sits 18 inches high and weighs 22 lbs. This chair comes preassembled and ready to use upon delivery. We sell these chairs for $130 each.

If you are looking for a simple yet long-lasting addition to your restaurant layout, the 5 channel back diner chair may be for you.

V Back Chrome Diner Chair

These V back chrome diner chairs are top sellers for a reason. For one, they are built for endurance. These are some of the only chairs you'll be able to find that are made with a 14 gauge steel frame. 

These chairs come preassembled and are welded together so that you don't have to worry about parts going missing. The seat and back are made out of hand routed plywood and vinyl upholstery.

We choose to make many of our chairs and stools using vinyl upholstery because of how easy it is to clean. For some helpful cleaning tips, click here.

As for color combinations, these V back chrome diner chairs are available in a couple of classic pairings. One of our favorites is Zodiac Burgundy with Zodiac Silver.

Other popular combinations include Royal Blue with Adobe White and Black with Adobe White. However, feel free to send us a private message with custom color preferences, and we will do our best to accommodate.

To top off the look, all finishes are embedded with aesthetically pleasing metallic flakes. But as the name suggests, the most defining visual component is the V-shaped color contrast on the back of the seat. Fans of this style find it to be a classic addition to the diner design.

These chairs cost $125 apiece, though we prefer to ship them in pairs of two. As with all of our other chairs and stools that we have in stock, these chairs will ship within 7-10 business days of your order.

This stool weighs 19 lbs and sits 18 inches tall.

Chrome Double Ring Bar Stool

When you imagine sitting at a soda shop sipping from a milkshake, this stool is what you would be sitting on.

These stools are popular additions to any restaurant with bar seating. But they are also good choices for homes with counters or breakfast nooks. 

This stool weighs 18 lbs and sits 30 inches tall. It comes in five pleasing colors, including red, yellow, green, blue, and black. But as always, send us a message with your custom color requests.

Nylon floor grips keep the stool grounded. Meanwhile, the stool swivels 360 degrees for a full range of motion. The double ring around the base provides easy foot and leg support.

We sell these stools for $80 apiece. Though we get a feeling, you will want more than one.

Cracked Ice/Handle Back Diner Chair

This diner chair is one of our pieces of best selling restaurant furniture. And for a good reason, too.

The cracked iced finish all over makes for an attractive chair for any scenario. Cracked ice gets its name for the flecks of white/silver that are incorporated into the pattern. This is a great option for people who want to add some visual texture to their restaurant furniture. 

We can do any custom color, but we have them stocked in cracked ice yellow, cracked ice red, and cracked ice grey. 

With a 14 gauge steel frame, this chair is built for endurance. We know that when you buy chairs for your restaurant, you expect them to endure a lot of wear and tear. These chairs are durable and easy to clean.

The back of the chair includes five hand-sewn channels, adding texture as well as comfort. Above the channels, you will find a steel handle, making it easy to move the chairs.

We sell these stylish seats for $125. Like many of our chairs, these cracked ice handle back diner chairs are made in the USA.

Double Ring Bar Stool with Back

This sleek and modern look is perfect for burger bars or hotel restaurants. They convey a sense of casual easiness while also being high quality and professional. To give your restaurant the facelift it may need, check out the double ring bar stool with a back.

The great thing about bar stools like this is they come with back support. While everyone loves the look of a traditional stool, some guests may find them difficult to sit in due to their lack of a place to rest their backs. 

If you are worried that some of your customers may struggle with back pain, choose stools that will support their backs. The back slides onto the chair using back posts, and the stool swivels easily.

These chairs give you the height and look of a stool, but with the support of a traditional chair. This chair sits 30 inches high when you purchase the two ring frame version. But if you prefer a single ring frame, you can choose between heights of 30 inches or 24 inches.

We offer a sleek black as our default look, but please inquire about other color options if you are interested. 

We sell these chairs for $120 a piece. Though we are confident that you'll love the way they look all up and down your bar.

Lucy Diner Chair

Sitting eighteen inches tall and weighing 22 lbs, the Lucy Diner Chair was one of our earliest and best creations. When it comes to best selling restaurant furniture, look no further than the Lucy. The Lucy is the classic diner chair: simple, sleek, and beautiful.

The Lucy features a box seat with a diamond tufted backing. Like many of our chairs, the Lucy is welded together for endurance. When you order these chairs, they will arrive fully assembled.

The vinyl in these chairs features reflective flakes of metal that create the appearance of glitter. Our top-selling model is a combination of Zodiac Burgundy and Zodiac Silver. But we routinely stock plenty of other color combinations as well.

Got something else in mind? Don't be shy about reaching out with your own color combinations.

The Lucy is $125 for one chair. 

Standard Diner Chair

When all is said and done, you can't mess with a classic, right? Our standard diner chair is a simple design that provides a uniform look on the dining floor. 

Since it's a standard design, we have quite a few pleasing colors to choose from. Though one of our popular selections is a simple black finish.

The cushion on this chair is a 2-inch box seat, which provides comfortable seating to your customers. However, if you prefer a different cushion style, we can also offer the standard diner chair in a waterfall or pulled seat style.

Sitting eighteen inches tall and weighing 22 lbs, we sell this chair for $115. The upholstery finish makes this chair easy to clean. This means that you'll be able to have it in your restaurant for years to come.

Double Ring Bar Stool

At just $40 per stool, this is our most affordable best selling product. Made out of 18 gauge steel, this double ring swiveling bar stool is durable without breaking the budget.

This stool sits 30 inches high and comes with nylon floor grips for traction. It comes in a variety of single tone colors, allowing for a unified look throughout your establishment.

Even though this bar stool is on the more affordable side, you do not sacrifice anything by way of comfort. This best selling stool was designed to give every guest a comfortable experience.

Crossover Frame Bar Stool

This look has increased in popularity over the years and is now one of our best sellers. It moves away from the rounded diner stool look that has spread through soda shops and cafes. Instead, the crossover frame barstool features a square-shaped base.

The singular ring is a square, giving this stool a sleek and modern look. Despite being less rounded, it still has full swiveling capabilities. At $60 apiece, this stool is affordable and stylish.

While this stool looks great in classic black, we also offer a variety of custom color options, including Blue, Red, and Wine. As always, feel free to reach out with custom color preferences.

Choose between a 24 inch and 30-inch seat height. The stool itself is 14.5 inches across. Perfect for lining your bartop.
