Be Unique. Be Bespoke. Be Stanway

This gem of a Stackable Seating Collection has so many applications, working beautifully in any setting; Theatres, Offices, Conference Centres, Law Courts & Places of Worship to name but a few.

Create flexible, manoeuvrable, and multi-use spaces.

Available in 3 heights for instant tiering with a wide range of finishes and accessories to add, the Stanway seat is extremely versatile and can create stunning, flexible spaces. 100% British Made, the Stanway can be customised & hand made to order with bespoke fabrics & finishes, and optional extras such as removable seat numbers and bespoke trolleys.

We have also partnered with tiering specialists, Stage & Tiers, to offer their Metrodeck tiering solution alongside our Stanway seating as a complete solution for creating flexible venues. Find out more here.

Remember, these product models are for your reference only. We provide bespoke seating solutions, so while we use these models to form the basis of the seat, they are completely customised to suit your requirements and 100% unique to you.
