Dining Chair Style
Just because something looks great in a picture doesn’t mean it will be a good fit for your dining room. Scope out the room to get a feel for the décor, and pay special attention to your dining table. Your choice of chair should blend in seamlessly. If you have an antique mahogany dining table, modern dining chairs made from leather or metal is an awkward fit. Instead, a set of wooden dining chairs with detailed carvings makes more sense.
If you are looking for something a bit more contemporary, upholstered or leather chairs are a smart choice. Look for finishes in chocolate, black or espresso, and make sure the chairs have smooth and simple lines.
It’s important to remember to balance style with comfort. If you love the look of metal, plastic or wood chairs with little to no cushion, ask yourself if you want something that provides a bit more padding. If you enjoy relaxing around the table after a big dinner, you’ll want something that is a bit easier on the backside.
If all of this is sounding a bit too stuffy for your tastes, folding dining chairs are a wonderful fit in dining rooms with a more laidback flavor.
