How to choose the right Dining Chair


                            

From shapely silhouettes to decorative details, beautiful timbers and woven textures, dining chairs set the right tone for style in your dining room. Be inspired by our favourite styles plus discover some key elements to help you choose the right dining chairs for your space, with confidence.

 

THE RIGHT FIT

Choose chairs with 45cm width for everyday dining. If you like to host often, consider a wider chair of 50cm for comfort. Carvers in the same style positioned at the ends of your table suit a traditional approach well. Or mix up the carver styles to add personality and depth in your dining space.

    

SHAPE & STYLE

Shapely round back chairs pair perfectly with round tables and chairs with more simple lines work best with rectangle tables. Chairs with feature details such as tufted back or nail-head trim help to create visual interest and tie other elements in the space together, such as a material in a light fixture or cabinet. As a general rule of thumb; we suggest pairing simple chairs with tables with decorative bases.  If an eclectic look is more your speed, select two different styles of chairs in the same finish and your dining room will look pulled together. 

       

             

COMFORT VS PRACTICALITY

Consider how you live. Do you have small children, grand babies or pets? Do you like to entertain a lot? Comfort vs practicality is the great debate, here's our advice;

- Choose quality materials. Timber (hardwood timbers, with strong seats). Woven materials with a tighter weave will last longer. 

- Fabric is always more comfortable so if this is your preference, we highly recommend choosing a commercial grade, stain resistant fabric that will not only satisfy your style but give you peace of mind to enjoy entertaining.
