Chair Style F
(Cheltenham or Gilt Frame Chair) can be fitted well with the S, M or XM covers but the S cover is best. We also offer a special chair cover C1 designed and tailored specifically to fit the Style F chair.

Chair Styles H - J. We offer 4 Chair Covers as standard designed to fit these non-banqueting chair styles. In many cases these 'off the shelf' covers will fit chair styles H - J fine but as the chairs can vary a lot you may need a custom chair cover for these chair styles. Call or email for details and fitting samples.

Measure the chair at the longest point. Use a tape measure to follow the curve of the chair back. Measure the dimensions shown in the table above.

SQUARE BACK OR ROUND BACK?

Square back chairs (often with rounded corners) are like the example on the right below although the back shape may vary a lot.

Round back chair covers are for chairs with a definite rounded back like the one seen on the left below.

MADE TO MEASURE OR STANDARD?

Some chair shapes or sizes make getting a good fit with any standard cover difficult. Also, if you always use the covers on the same chair you may want to get a perfectly tailored look. That's where our express UK based Made To Measure service can help. And remember - Custom Made chair covers are only 1 more than Standard Fit Covers! Custom Chair Cover Information.

SHAPE SELECTION

A Square Back Chair Cover will fit on either a square or round back chair of the similar size, while a Round Back Chair Cover will only fit on round back chairs.

Smaller hire companies not yet in a position to carry a complete range of sizes will often just carry Square Back Chair Covers initially knowing that these will fit on either of these standard basic shapes.

Obviously there are compromises in appearance when a Square Back Chair Cover is used on a round back chair. In many cases this combination will work quite well but depending on the size and shape of the chair the seat top corners may sag a little. Ultimately using Round Back Chair Covers on round back chairs will produce the best looking result.

SHAPE CONSIDERATIONS

Chair designs such as bowed backs, round seats, and tapering backs, all affect fit. Before committing to a purchase you are advised to take advantage of our 'fitting sample' service to 'try before you buy'. Order online or call us today.

Many banqueting and dining chairs may look similar but there is no such thing as a 'standard' chair. Our database includes hundreds of chairs in common use and our standard covers fit the majority of commonly used banqueting and dining chairs.

Our X and XXL square back chair covers are the most popular with hire companies as they will fit a wide range of chairs. Sashes and bows can also be used to 'take up slack' and allow one cover to be used on a wide range of chairs.
