Wedding Chapels are located across the world. Small Chapels are usually located off the main worship sanctuary in larger cathedral-style churches. In many instances, a Chapel setting is the choice for worship buildings in small communities versus a large cathedral-style church. Funeral Homes usually have a small Chapel within their facility for those wishing to pray in private for the departed. Hospitals have a Chapel on their premises for their patients or family members to pray for the health of their loved ones or to seek solace for the loss of a loved one. Religious Schools will have a Chapel on premises as well as larger Universities will have Chapels located on the campus for their students and staff.
All these different Chapel settings will need Chapel Chairs:
Chapel Seating is available in either metal frame or wood frame upholstered chairs or in solid wood frame chairs or pew seating. The arrangement of the Chapel Chairs or Pew Seating will either be in the traditional front facing rows or in a semi circle.
Wedding Chapels generally come pre-decorated with flowers around the altar and have a church-style arrangement with a middle isle for the bride to make her traditional walk down the isle to the altar to meet the waiting groom. Most Wedding Chapels contain front facing Pews or individual Chapel Chairs. The facility may also contain a reception hall for after the wedding ceremony. The reception hall will generally contain stackable chairs in a smaller banquet seating design that will allow the flexibility to rearrange the hall setting according to the number of guests the hall is being decorated for.
Funeral home chapel rooms will generally be of two types: The large chapel room for the funeral ceremony and a small personal chapel room for the privacy of individuals or small groups with kneelers for traditional prayer purposes. Most funeral home chairs are made of wood frames with upholstered cushion seating. Funeral Home Chapel Furniture may also consist of a tall viewing chair at the casket.
Religious Schools are located throughout the world. The purpose of attendance at one of these religious schools is not only to learn academics, but also to also learn and practice their faith on a daily basis. Stackable seating would not only be used throughout the school for classroom chairs and for the cafeteria seating but would also be used for Chapel Seating.
University chapels generally seat from 50 to 500. The storage of stackable chairs is a must in today’s multi-purpose room needs of any facility. The University Chapel is meant to be a sacred space available for prayer and worship by members of the University community, where hospitality is given and received as Christians and persons of other faith traditions “make room” for one another so that all may thrive on campus grounds. Primarily, the purpose of a University Chapel’s use relates to religious and ceremonial events and programming for each campus. This means that the chapel is especially available for occasions for worship, fellowship, formation, and organizing religious functions on campus. The chapel is also the location from which events that pertain to church relations and that involve guests to the campus from religious bodies are hosted. Other uses for the University Chapel are secondary to these principal ones for this designated sacred space.
Hospital chapels will contain rows of stackable chairs or fixed seating with or without kneelers and are designed to be welcoming for people of all faiths. The space in the Hospital Chapel is for use by patients, staff and visitors as places of prayer and meditation and remain open 24 hours a day. Patients may come in hospital attire. With budget cuts and the need to accommodate many faiths, the traditional Chapel with the religious symbol of a cross is now being replaced with a Meditation Room where all religious symbols have been removed from the room.
Catholic chapels are usually found in one of two settings. In their own separate building built on a smaller scale than the large community churches of today; or placed within a large Catholic Church off to the side of the main sanctuary to be used for a more personal setting for individual prayer.
