You must have noticed a growing trend of plastic furniture in commercial places. You walk into a restaurant, and you’ll see well-designed colorful plastic tables and chairs have replaced the traditional wooden ones. Take a closer look at your office cafeteria – do you see a lot of plastic chairs there too? Yes, plastic has evidently taken the commercial sector by a storm, and the reasons are quite obvious.

First of all, plastic furniture comes with its own vibes. With vivid colors, and funky shapes, they help uplift the mood. Why do companies spend so much time and effort in creating a cheerful environment for the employees? So that coming to work doesn’t feel like a chore. A colorful atmosphere helps to keep employees inside the office. Other materials can’t give you the liberty of splashing colors all around the space, keeping the atmosphere light and jovial. Modern schools and colleges are long done with wooden furniture. Some educational institutions even consider plastic chaise because of health factors. There are plastic chair manufacturers who focus on building chairs that are good for the back. For example, Italica’s spine care chairs ergonomically designed to provide complete lower to upper back support.. Therefore, plastic chairs not only help to lighten the environment, but given the right design and quality, it can also be a healthier option.

Let’s face it, the care with which you would handle the furniture at your home is not going to be the same with the ones at a commercial place. Offices, factories, restaurants, schools and colleges are where people go for work, fun or studies – they’re not mindful about leaving a stain or chipping off some wood off the chair or the table they’re using. If it’s a place with a lot of footfall, there will be no way to track who is damaging the furniture in what way. This is one of the main reasons why commercial sectors prefer to with furniture that cannot be easily damaged – something that’s durable, would bear the test of time both indoors and outdoors. What would be a better option than plastic furniture considering durability? It’s not only a cheaper option to begin with but it’s also a cost-effective investment in the long run.

Lots of responsible companies in India have realized that a code of green building is the need of the hour. The growing trend of plastic furniture in commercial places (as long as they’re reused and recycled) is a welcome change from high use of wood. Plastic furniture  is artificially made and doesn’t need trees to be cut down for its protection. With constant droughts, frequent floods and scarcity of water, the eco-friendly trend of plastic furniture can only be regarded as a positive change in attitude.
