One of the most functional pieces of furniture is the humble folding chair. The folding chair is easy to store, durable and easily transportable. One of the only problems with directors chairs is there nasty aesthetic reputation probably because they are often left to brave the outdoor elements. In my areas of Sydney I often see directors chairs and folding chairs on the rubbish pile for collection - not because they are broken but usually because they are faded, dirty, and depressingly bedraggled!
In the last few years as these countries have one by one joined the European Union, the costs of making these very labour intensive chairs has increased considerably for these factories, giving them no alternative but to increase their prices. This has led to some UK banqueting furniture suppliers looking to factories in China and Malaysia to produce copies of these chairs but without the many years of experience of the traditional manufacturers, the quality can be very variable. Often, where the European factories would use steam bending to shape the elegant curved forms of the banquet chair, the Chinese and Malaysian manufacturers use simpler wood joining methods, for example finger jointing or even butt jointing, methods which are not nearly as strong as the steam bending process which produces the part without affecting the strength or integrity of the wood. Therefore purchasing these cheaper chairs can often be a false economy and can end in very early replacement of an expensive investment.
