Since the creation of Michael Thonet’s company in 1819, Bentwood chairs have dominated the hospitality industry. And there’s a good reason Bentwood chairs are some of the most widely used chairs in the world. The chairs combine durability with style and blend into any atmosphere effortlessly. Below are some of our favourite Bentwood pairings from local projects we’ve done to inspirational venues around the world.

Au FudgeCelebrity turn restauranteur, Jessica Biel, helped open Au Fudge in West Hollywood, California. The shabby-chic restaurant uses Bentwood B-9’s in black with gingham print cushions next to their market section. Combining the gingham pattern and natural timber displays exude a cozy and down-home farm aura that invites guests in.

Combining lively blue, pink and orange in their A-18 chairs, BST-18’s barstools and Beville T-9739’s stools. They created an eye-catching restaurant that emits happy vibes.
The Mill HotelThe Mill Hotel worked with Bergstrom Architects to design a massive face-lift for their hotel. From the ultra-modern carpet to exposed brick, every square meter was of this build was meticulous. Designing their Bentwood A-5910’s in a custom paint job compliments the décor and adds another layer of interest.
Elizabeth Street CaféElizabeth Street Café is in the heart of Austin, Texas and is a gateway to a 1950’s American diner. The striking blue Bentwood B-9’s with cane seats against the monochromatic tile floor make a bold statement. While the simple lines of the B-9 chair don’t conflict with the mixed patterns in the room.

Hotels are the cornerstone of venue design. Since updating hotels can be extensive and costly, the furniture needs to stand the test of time in terms of both durability and style. However, this is of course much easier said than done. It can be easy for hoteliers to become overwhelmed as they fall down the rabbit hole of design. So if you are looking for some inspiration for your next fit-out, you need look no further. We have created a shortlist below of some of our favourite projects as well as the latest industry trends.
Inspirational Projects:Over the years BSeated has had the opportunity to work with incredible designers and have taken on numerous hotel fitouts. With some of Australia’s most well respected hotels as loyal clients, we have built a reputation for creating amazing spaces that guests love. We worked alongside Travelodge to create custom lounges, chairs, and ottomans to form an inviting common area. Rydges Sydney Central Hotel used our Timber Cross Backs paired with custom dining and bar tables to create a timeless dining space. And we were lucky enough to work with Sails Resort on multiple sections. They paired our Air Chairs and sunlounges by their luxury Poolside. Then used the Hubbie Lounges and Olso Armchairs within the rooms to ensure their guests were comfortable anywhere.
Latest Trend:Our favourite hotel trend on the rise is rattan furniture. It’s a bohemian nod to the 70’s that adds a beachy feel to even the most landlocked venues. When paired with tropical pillows and sheepskin rugs for added comfort, it beckons guests to unwind with a book and an iced cocktail. See below for some of the best applications of rattan from around the world.
