According to Woodbender, it was time to offer clients a fresh new shape. Woodbender has three other stacking chairs in their range and the Abbey now provides them with an additional option.

Each of Woodbender’s current stacking chairs (Tivoli, Sutherland and the Parklane) takes its name from well-known theatres around the world. The latest addition to the stacking chair range was named after the Abbey Theatre in Ireland.

Stacking chairs are a must for venue spaces for a multitude of reasons. Their shape and design mean they are generally less bulky than more traditional seating options, making them easier to move around when they are in use. And when it is time to pack them away, they fit neatly on top of one another saving a large amount of floor space. Put simply, these chairs are a space-saving seating solution with effective storage capabilities.

The Abbey boasts several new features not found in our other stacking chairs. It has a singularly supported leg which allowed our R&D team more flexibility during the chair’s design process. In addition, the back and front leg joins are notably more rigid, further adding to the strength of the new shape.

The contemporary shape of the Abbey is a departure from the more classic stacking chair designs. Key characteristics include a wide, curved backrest and square seat frame with a new molded upholstered seat for additional comfort. The angular back legs provide the Abbey with additional stability, a highly desirable quality for a stacking chair to have as it is typically used in high traffic environments. With its small footprint and lightweight frame, the Abbey promises to be the perfect addition to multifunctional spaces and private homes across South Africa and beyond.

As with all Woodbender designs, the Abbey is a premium-quality handcrafted piece of furniture made from sustainably-sourced Ash timber. Customers are encouraged to add their personal touch by ordering it in a fabric and stain of their choice.
