I’m looking to rent Chivari chairs, but won’t be able to see them in person prior to renting them. I’m wondering if anyone used them in the color Ice? I like the concept – a cross between a ghost chair and a chivari. I’m wondering what they look like in person – did they feel cheap or plasticy? Drawbacks? Raves?
And finally, does anyone have any pictures they can share?
I’m torn between silver, ice, and even possibly mahagony. My colors are blush and silver. Color coordinating everything is going to give me an ulcer 🙂

Honestly, and this is just my opinion, I seen them in person and I didnt like them. They look a little cheap because the ones I seen were just this thin clear plastic. I even seen them with ribbons and they just looked like cheap chairs with ribbons tied to it. Mahagony would be nice. Here is the picture from the store that I went to see. I ended up getting white resin folding chairs. I hope this helps.

I haven’t seen ice, but I’ve seen gold and mahogany in person at our venue. I love the mahogany ones!

I had ice ones for an event I planned for a past job. They were really nice and I think they had a wow factor cause most people haven’t seen the clear ones too much. Not sure about your vendor but the price of them was $10 each and all the wooden ones were $6 each so find out if they have a mark up.

Thanks everyone. I just got off the phone with a few rental companies. For the ice, they wanted $23.00 per chair – ouch. I wasn’t expecting that. So, now I’m down to the gold, mahogany, or silver. Interestingly, the gold are $1 less expensive than the others.
My colors are silver and blush with some sparkle. But, the discount on the gold chivari’s really has me thinking about going with the gold and changing the tones to gold and blush. I dont know. I need to think about this.
FI’s response – this is stressing me out. I have never put so much thought into a chair. Why are we paying for chairs again. lol. He doesnt get my obsession with chairs and linens.
