1. Believe it or not, it has great style!
Metal furniture manufacturers have worked hard to create furniture that combines both form and function. Natural colors that are reminiscent of wood and laminate drawer faces can transform a basic piece of metal furniture into something indistinguishable from wood furniture aesthetically.
2. Cleanability and pest management.

3. It’s got spirit & style!
While most metal furniture is designed to mimic or blend in with wood furniture, metal can also be a great statement as part of a team or school spirit color design. Standard primary color options or custom match paints are easy to achieve on metal furniture since metal does not have the variations and graining of wood. Painted metal surfaces are consistent and easy to standardize for any color scheme.
4. Extreme durability.
Metal furniture is a work horse of the contract furniture market. Metal furniture can tolerate extreme use which makes it perfect for any group living environment – especially dormitory and transient housing applications. Metal beds and bunk beds are durable and cleanable. Metal case pieces can include underbed storage, night stands, and chests of drawers. Metal’s finishes are well-sealed so with proper care metal beds and case pieces can withstand punctures, drink rings and general heavy use. What’s more, if the finish ever gets damaged, do-it-yourself patch kits can create a like-new look in very little time.
5. It’s affordable.
While good-quality metal furniture might have a higher sticker price than wood equivalents, you can expect metal furniture to last 10 – 15 years or longer. Many metal furniture collections have warranties that will cover normal use for ten years or more. Metal furniture may require a larger up-front investment but the replacement cycle is less frequent.
Metal furniture is popping up in a lot of places that traditionally use wood furniture. Metal beds and case pieces can be combined to create a highly durable, highly functional living space for group living environments.
