I visited my friend the other day and could not help notice that his wife had changed the dining chairs. It was a breath of fresh air considering I had always wanted to tell him how unfit they were for each other but my friendliness could not allow it. Anyway, that gave me a great idea! Instead of going around telling people how messed up their dining areas were owing to bad chair selection why not put my expertise to some good use and help people pick the right dining chairs for their taste? Great right? So, here we are.
With all the live edge furniture going around, you must have landed yourself a great live edge table and now you can’t seem to pick the right chairs to go with that right? Well, here is a great idea. Traditional farm style wood chairs. They are heavy and durable and pair well with rustic tables. You can even them throw them around the rustic farm table. If you care more about authenticity, you might want to look into the shaker style type of wood chairs. They have that hint of uniqueness in them as well.
You many also opt for the café style bent wood chairs. They are making quite the resurgence and are quite the fit with their curvy lines and definitely look great with virtually any table. But, you do not have to take my word for it. Just try it out and see how well that blends.
The large family appeal
You have a larger than life family and in most instances, you have guests dropping for dinner. It can be a hurdle especially when you are not sure of how many guests are coming so here is a very raw idea and one that you might find to be a light bulb moment like it was for me. On one side of the dining table, you can have the regular chair then on the other side have a bench. To make it much easier both on the eyes and the user, opt for cushioned one or a banquette seating. You will need a tip to pull this off. Place the bench on the side that has the window. This helps to frame the dining area nicely and give it a sense of depth .
You might find this hard but you will not believe it until you try it out but classic Eames Bentwood chairs could also make for great dining room chairs that bring a hint of class and elegance and allow you to show off your exquisite style.
Choosing great dining chairs can be a nightmare. Unlike the tables that will usually jump at you when you see them, the chairs have a different story. You have to consider so much before selecting them not to mention that they should also be able to go well with your table. Bad chairs take away the positive energy of the table which is why you have to pay particular attention to make sure you get the pairing right as well.
