You can place tables and chairs on these mats. Since these mats are foam, they will depress when weight is placed on them. You also would not want to push and pull chairs on these mats. To get around a lot of these challenges, we would recommend using furniture sliders under all tables and chairs. This will allow you to push and pull chairs without damaging the mats and the sliders will help to keep the mats from getting damaged by the table and chair legs. To get a sample of this mat, please feel free to call one of our Flooring Heroes via chat, email, or phone and they will be more than happy to assist with that request.
