Welcome to Chart Area Seating: specialists in providing unique bespoke seating solutions for universities, colleges and Student Unions.

At Chart Area Seating we became aware of the increasing popularity of bespoke seating as an alternative to conventional standard products.

Quite simply, for some projects nothing but bespoke will do! And working with one of the UK's most talented and creative bespoke furniture makers we are delighted to be able to offer a complete bepoke seating service.

The craftmanship and skills of the furniture makers ensure the highest quality finish and the creativity of the design team support you in bringing your ideas to life!

What are the advantages of bespoke seating?

Bespoke seating can enable you to make use of all the available space in your airport restaurant, bar or hotel

Bespoke seating allows you to create seating which reflects and supports the ambience of your establishment - high-sided booths support intimate and calm dining and drinking experiences for your clientele, communal seating encourages sociable interaction between your guests.

Bespoke seating enables you to realise the ideas you have providing the scope for you to specify every detail of your seating from the surface finish, upholstery fabric and size and proportions.

Whether your restaurant has languid leisurely diners or a fast-paced, quick-turnaround dining experience bespoke seating designed and built specifically to your requirements can support how your business works.
