The task of purchasing furniture for a church could include interior design for a huge megachurch, or it could be finding just the right furniture for a small chapel or meditation room located in a hospital. Either way, the décor of a sacred space should reflect the church’s degree of formality, tradition, and openness to new ideas.

When designing a worship area, it’s important to consider the desired flexibility of the space. Will the sanctuary be used solely for worship services, or will it be used for church activity groups as well? For example, stacking chairs are a good idea in a room that’s used both for church services and as a multipurpose room at other times.

Church areas that need wood seating

Most churches have a large, central gathering room (sometimes called a nave, chapel, or sanctuary) where regular worship services are held. In this area, the congregation will gather and sit (typically) to listen, sing, and pray. Churches also have waiting areas, welcome areas, classrooms, boardrooms, and offices. Some have children’s areas. Wooden seating is ideally suited for all these areas.

Wood chairs pair beautifully with church settings. Some worship areas may benefit from hardwood chairs fitted with cushions, while in other places and climates, hard surface, unupholstered wood seating is preferable because it’s more resistant to moisture and staining. The style, color, and silhouette of the chairs are also considerations, as these all affect the overall ambiance of a place of worship.

Holsag makes hardwood chairs that withstand the rigors of church usage. This durability ensures that your investment in church wood seating will last for years to come, providing comfort and support to congregants throughout countless worship services.

Wooden folding chairs: offering flexibility and style

In situations that require versatile seating arrangements, wooden folding chairs are an excellent solution. These chairs look classy, yet they can be easily stored away when not in use. Folding chairs allow you to add seating during busy holiday events. They can also be used for weddings and other special events.

Despite their foldable design, the Milan Folding Chair is comfortable and durable. Crafted from sturdy wood, these chairs offer the same level of support and elegance as their non-folding counterparts.
