Dining Room / January 16, 2018 / Tiffany Vann.
The space that your dining table inhabits should have a natural impact on the chairs you choose. For example, if you have a tall table in a contemporary kitchen area, you might prefer some tall bar stools, to give a breakfast bar look. Whereas, if your table is in an open-plan room, you'll want chairs that align with your sofa choice and other decorative touches!
One of the first things you will have to ask yourself is where you will be placing your dining table. A round table curiously seems to draw all elements that surround it towards it, thereby anchoring itself (and the chairs) visually more than a rectangular table would. It also takes up less space.
When there's barely enough room for even a very small dining table, a breakfast bar can be a more practical dining furniture option, which is why we are including bar stools in this guide. Chic, fun and a little less formal than regular 'sit down' chairs, stools put the glamour back into mealtimes and simply tuck away, under the counter, when not in use. They really are ideal for modest homes where every spare inch of space counts.
Dark wall, with dark wood furniture illuminated with warm lighting does not make the space seem narrow, as one would imagine, rather it makes the whole area appear quite warm and cozy. The black chairs complement the black wall, and the bench is definitely the center of attraction of this open dining space.
