The seating in a restaurant is a lot more than just providing patrons with a place to sit. Instead, this component of restaurant interior design is multifaceted and includes a few different factors, including comfort, ease of maintenance, and overall style.

Restaurant seating should certainly be comfortable to ensure that guests can enjoy their meals and beverages in every way, but the style of the chairs and seats should also be considered, since these components play a key role in the overall look of the restaurant’s design and ambience.

Leather or Velvet?

Not only should the actual material of the seating be a consideration when choosing these pieces for a restaurant’s interior, but so should the fabric that they are covered in. And when it comes to restaurant seating, leather tends to be a common textile, and for good reason. Leather is not just esthetically pleasing, but it’s also easy to keep clean and maintain. Just a simple wipe can eliminate spills and stains that can be left behind in a restaurant setting.

But another player is making a splash on the scene in restaurant seating that an increasing number of designers are incorporating into their projects: velvet. While some may balk at the idea of adding velvet to their interiors in fear of appearing outdated and tacky, the velvet pieces that are out today are nowhere near what they were yesteryear.

Instead, today’s velvet restaurant seating is incredibly sophisticated and luxurious. While leather is still certainly a viable option, upscale interiors are increasingly being outfitted in more elegant velvet-adorned pieces that evoke a sense of opulence.
