Table Seating Guide

It's often hard to work out how many chairs go around a table, or how many people will squeeze onto a bench. This seating guide for our collections should give you some more ideas to make the right decision!

Bistro Range

Fermobs Bistro range has grown from the Bistro chair first produced in 1889. The table configurations started from being based around small cafe requirements but have expanded out to more options for dining and in our homes.

The 71cm square accommodates dining for two, or four at a squeeze. The 96cm round and 117cm rectangle tables comfortably seat four. The tables can all be folded for stowage or bringing out for additional guests.

Other table sizes are available but not stocked in Australia but sould be added to the next shipment from France. So if you have a specific requirement Contact Us and we can send you through a full list of options.

 

Bistro Seating Plan

 With the Bistro range, tables and chairs are available in 24 colours and may be mixed.

Evolve Range

The Evolve range is very versatile with it's mix of benches chairs and stools to match with the tables. Benches allow more people to "squeeze up" and fit at the table.

Evolve Bench Seating

Choosing a bench a size down from the table will allow it to slide in underneath completely. This is particularly useful on a balcony be reducing the footprint of the setting when it's not in use. The Evolve Stool can also be added to the ends for more spots around the table.

 

Evolve Bench Seating Plan

* A 1.2m bench seats two adults, A 1.5m bench seats three adults, a 1.8m bench seats three adults comfortably, and four at a push.

Evolve Chair Seating

The Evolve range has the option of both chairs and armchairs. Armchairs work well at the "head" of the table and their arms will fit underneath the table.

Three chairs down the side of a 1.8m table is do-able, but quite tight especially if you plan to put a chair on each end of the table. A 2.1m table would be a better option for this if you had the space.

We are able to customise this range if you want to seat more, or fit to a smaller space. Have a look at our Custom Outdoor Furniture page for more information.

Evolve High Bar Seating

End stools are possible on this range, however they will not slide under because of the "H" configuration of bracing underneath

Raw Concrete Range

The 2m table in the Raw Concrete range will work with either stools or benches. One thing to keep in mind is that the bench is quite heavy, so you'll need to step over it to sit down in the middle.

Luxembourg Range

The Luxembourg dining table comes in three different sizes. As a rule of thumb, the 143cm seats four, the 165cm seats six and the 207cm seats eight. The Luxembourg Dining Armchair may substitute  Luxembourg Dining Chair and not affect the number of seats. The Armchair looks good at the ends of the table.

The 145cm bench without back will slide in underneath the 207cm table, but not under the 165cm table. However, it looks good proportionately with each. The shorter 110cm bench with back fits well with the 165cm table and will slide underneath easily.

Reflect Range

We've shown the below with the Reflect Dining Chair. The Reflect Dining Armchair is a little wider. Because the table legs are placed in the corner on this range, there is more scope to get three chairs down the side of a 1.8m table.

Although not shown here, the Reflect Stainless Steel Bench provides a bench seating option for this table.

Cove Range

Like the Evolve range, the Cove range is very versatile with it's mix of benches chairs and stools to match with the tables. The Cove has the advantage of it's legs being in the corners giving a little more room for dining chairs down the side.

Choosing a bench the size below the table will alow it to slide completely underneath if required. 

Cove Seating Plan

* A 1.2m bench seats two adults, A 1.5m bench seats three adults, a 1.8m bench seats three adults comfortably, and four at a squeeze.

Costa Range

The Costa table has the big advantage of extending. Inserting the middle leaf (stowed under the table) will increase it's size from 1.6m to 2.4m giving 4 additional seats.

Your spare Costa Chairs will stack, or you can bring an additional chairs from around the house. The Bistro Folding Chair makes a good option that can be easily stowed away or used in another area.

The  Costa Armchair can be placed at the ends or around the table and will also stack.

Luxembourg Seating Plan

The tables and chairs are available in 24 and 10 colours respectively and may be mixed.
