Portuguese term or phrase: bentwood chair
Um restuarante se utiliza de "bentwood chairs"
Élcio Filho
English translation:cadeira de madeira curvada (arqueada)
Explanation:
I hope you wanted translation INTO PORTUGUESE:)....

As is known, the bentwood (bent-wood) furniture appeared in Europe.

By the bentwood furniture they mean (;et us quote Britannica:)):
===
a type of furniture made by bending wooden rods into the required shape after they have been heated with steam. Although this method of bending wood was used by makers of the Windsor chair in the 18th century, it was not until the 1840s that its possibilities were exploited fully.
...
Le Corbusier, a Swiss-born architect, experimented with laminated bentwood chairs, as did the Finn Alvar Aalto.
===
So, the restuarant you mentioned wants to stress that the ambient there is rather stylish: they have "cadeiras (ou poltronas) de madeira curvada (arqueada)" or simply "mobiliario de madeira arqueada".

As for the term in question, another way to call this furniture is to say that "it is Viennese (e.g., Viennese chairs)". So, if you want to augment their (of restaurant) self-evaluation, yuou might also apply here the term "cadeiras\poltronas de Viena".
