Seating in the Right Place

The fondest memories are made when gathered around the table.

Having barstools available in kitchens and outdoor eating areas is a great way to invite family and friends to join you for conversations while you’re busy doing food preparation.

Seating Innovation’s swing out barstools are a convenient option for island seating, because they are always there. And adding either a foot rail or a foot step with the suspended seating system will make your seating experience more comfortable.

We invite you to browse our gallery of photos to see the many different options available for suspended chairs. Within our photo gallery you’ll find residential and commercial applications that use round stools, metal chairs, wood chairs, and chairs with upholstered seats.


Hanging Chairs

“Do those chairs hang from the countertop?  Is the countertop reinforced to hold the chair up?”  The answer to both questions is no.  Seating Innovations’ snack bar stools do not require modification to the countertop  The suspended seating system is freestanding and mounts directly to the floor.  The cantilever frame system is typically concealed behind the finish panel and underneath the footrest, thus giving the illusion of chairs hanging from the countertop.

Pivotal Seats

Island bars are designed for convenience in mind; whether for breakfast, lunch, snacks or entertaining.  Our snack bar chairs take convenience to a new level since the stools won’t tip over, scratch the floor or break.  They rotate and pivot away from the bar with easy access for kids as well as adults.

Snack Bar Stools

The focus of remodeling is to upgrade/update a kitchen with new cabinets, appliances, countertops and fixtures.  Adding suspended seating to a remodeling project will provide a distinctive new look and organization to the kitchen. Suspended seating can be designed to match the new decor with the variety of options in colors, chair styles and seating systems.  Homeowners appreciate the value of suspended seating that is always organized, eases cleaning and minimizes damage to countertops and floors.

Suspended Chairs

Built-in desk seating by Seating Innovations is revolutionary.  Like all our products, it has built-in arm and seat stops which minimize chair collisions with the countertop.  The chair return design brings the empty chair back to a resting position.  We use heavy-duty steel components that will hold up to 500 lb. loads.

Swinging Chairs

Some things can be appreciated by observing from a distance.  Others require some hands-on experience.  Suspended seating is one product that is better understood and valued if you experience it.  From swinging the chair out to sit down after a long-day’s work, to readjusting the chair’s position to your desired location for dinner, suspended seating is comfortable and intuitive.  And when you are ready to go, just stand and exit the chair and the chair returns to it’s resting position, thus Seating in the Right Place.TM

Chairs without Legs

Seating Innovations is uniquely suited for outdoor kitchens and barbecues.  We have a variety of chair styles and options for outdoor environments with features including zinc undercoat, UV protected fabrics and weather resistant cushions.  Whether you’re enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner, suspended seating will enhance your experience and always be organized and ready for use.

Counter Stools

Seating Innovations’ counter stools can be adapted to any situation where you need a chair.  We’ve designed and manufactured seating for use in houseboats, motor homes, restaurants, culinary schools, libraries, medical offices and lunch rooms.  If you have your chair already picked out but you don’t see it in our catalog or chair style galleries, we can create a custom seat plate to fit about any chair.
