Every church, chapel, meeting house and venue for community, arts or social events requires seating that is comfortable, strongly made, well designed, attractive and practical. Treske make and supply stacking wooden chairs with or without hymn book shelves, with wood, leather, rush or upholstered seats and in a range of woods including oak and beech, or with special stained finishes. (Trolleys for storing and moving stacking chairs also made and supplied).
Stacking chairs give churches the flexibility to create space and different configurations of seating for different types of church use. The choice of chair is important and can depend on the storage space avaliable, the ease and distance of moving, the uses for which the chairs will be used for, as well as their aesthetic fit within the church itself - and they need to be comfortable!
Treske have furnished parish churches, cathedrals, Quaker meeting houses, Methodist chapels, school chapels and a hospital faith centre. Churches often choose to have one of the bespoke designs already developed by Treske but with their own variant specific to them designed into the chair. This can range from the depth of a hymn book shelf or to the wood a chair is made of. However we can also develop new designs for customers through working carefully with them to understand what is needed and how it will fit into an often historic building.

After some years of consultation between the church, congregation and Treske designers, Treske made over 600 chairs for St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall on the main island of Orkney.
The Treske lightweight stacking chair was chosen by the Wesley Methodist Church in Chester for the main and supplementary seating, which besides meeting the selection criteria, was complementary to many of the worship area’s architectural features.
During the preparatory work the pulpit and old pews were removed, revealing beautiful scagliola columns which, with the rounded Byzantine arches in the chancel and between the columns are the defining feature of the space, and becoming the architectural elements that found their way into the new sanctuary furniture.
