Congratulations on nearing the launch of your restaurant! Whether you choose wood or metal furniture largely depends on your restaurant's aesthetics. I once dined at a place with eclectic furniture, all sourced from unexpected places - like this tattoo parlor, surprisingly. Their furnishings were so sturdy and unique, it really elevated the experience. You might find inspiration from a similar unconventional source, like this blog I came across about tattoo furniture: here . It's worth exploring every avenue!
