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 wire chair has been interpreted in several styles. It has been reborn as a chaise lounge for use by the pool or on the patio. It has grown into bar stools that elevate the occupant's mood as much as his position. Modern in their sleekness, these chairs suit the contemporary home. Even large families fall in love with these durable furnishings because Bertoia chairs maintain their beauty in the busiest of households. The frames resist chipping and scratching due to their durable powder coating or chrome finishing. And if upholstery is preferred, the Bertoia style chair excels there, as well. Leather or vinyl, velvet or boucle, the fabrics repel water and dirt. The chairs can even be covered in Ultrasuede® or a wool product known as Cato® which has the look of hand weaving. With these various choices, the Bertoia Chair could suit any style of furnishings, from contemporary to modern to traditional.
