In the second case, they may also hire some interior designing firm or freelancer to give them advice. As a result, the designer may create a design and he/she may select a chair which suits the particular design which he/she created. Because of this, the restaurant owners do what they feel will make their restaurant look charming. Therefore, the end up buying uncomfortable chairs, tables, sofas to make their interior look attractive and they do not focus on client’s comfort. They should focus on buying furniture from specialist supplier who sell high quality chairs in bulk. Cost is definitely a factor and restaurant owners do have to stick to the budget but they should also keep the end goal in mind. Apart from the food, the client should feel comfortable sitting on the chair and using the table on which the food will be served. If they are comfortable they will surely return and even bring their friends. Hence, good restaurants should stop using uncomfortable chairs and focus on giving the best experience and comfort to their customers.
The design firm my employer used to design our new office has interior designers on staff. Everyone has the same style and color chair in our office. This would be fine, except the interior designer must be about 5'3". If one is taller than about 5'6" or has long legs, the chairs do not raise high enough for one to sit comfortably.
