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.
The Bertoia side chair is another great example of the imaginative wonder of the Bertoia line of chairs. This chair, which features delicately interwoven metal, sits high and tall, making it exceptionally useful at high counter tops or bars. The chair is often available with a full cover. The cover stretches over the entire frame of the chair, giving it a more formal and elegant look. Traditional seat coverings also can be placed on the seat and back of the chair, adding to the chair's already comfortable design.
