Getting Back to “Base”-ics

When you walk into a restaurant, what do you notice first? Your answer probably won’t be the table bases that support each of the tables. Yet, they are so important to consider. When purchasing restaurant furniture, table bases should be recognized as the ultimate supporting piece for your customer’s experience, besides the chair or bar stool that they sit in. Customers want to enjoy a meal in a comfortable space with a sturdy, non-wobbly table that gives them plenty of leg and foot room. Your base is the piece that is going to provide that support and space, especially when the right one is paired with your table top. Does it have to be a fancy, expensive base? No. But, you can choose table bases with a design element that blends in with your restaurant’s theme so as to coordinate with the atmosphere you want to offer your customers.
