Vintage stacking chairs can come in several styles and be used for a wide variety of purposes. They were used as stacking school chairs, tubular framed chairs, hall chairs, church chairs, community hall chairs and office chairs.
As these chairs stacked on top of each other they took up less room so were perfect for businesses with limited storage capacities.
First introduced by PEL in 1932 and designed by Bruno Pollock in 1931 and named RP6 the first stacking chair had a grey tubular steel frame which was enamelled. The seat and backs were made from a red canvas.
Their use was very widespread in schools, church halls. meeting and hospitals just before WWII and were mass produced in larger quantities after the war as low-cost mass-produced bent plywood became available and a greater availability of steel and iron. Their fabrication was not limited to just PEL. Nest-A-Bye, Remploy, Bamco, Cox, and Remploy also started to make a similar curved tubular steel designed chairs with a bent plywood seat and backrest in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

The basic design follows the same process: a tubular steel frame was welded with runners along the bottom for increased stability. It was painted, black, grey, red, green or blue. A curved seat and backrest were then riveted to the frame. The steel frame made them strong and allowed them to be stacked to save space. Up to 15 chairs can be stacked in a single column.

Now with their stylish mid-century curves and natural wood and nod to their industrial heritage vintage stacking chairs have made a come-back and can be seen everywhere from dining rooms to offices to restaurants and bars.
Our retro and vintage dining / school chairs are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
