Dining Room / January 17, 2018 / Kristina Blakely.
If you have one formal and one casual dining space, you can really go to town with different chair designs for both. A casual spot will do best with sociable, comfy seating that naturally leads to conversation, whereas a formal setting is where you can play around with luxury fabrics. If you only have one dining room, you're going to need to combine all of these elements in one set of chairs, if possible!
You may use it every day for every meal, or simply for elegant dinner parties when old friends and important business associates drop by – we are, of course, talking about the dining room. But regardless of how many times your dining room sees some action, it doesn’t excuse the fact that it needs to flaunt as much practicality and style as the rest of your home.So, with beauty in mind, let’s take a look at some tried-and-tested ways to add a touch of glamour to your dining space without breaking the bank…
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.
Dining tables and chairs absolutely need to be proportional with each other, as there's no use in having a low table and tall chairs! For a pared back, organic and very zen installation, Japanese designs can be looked to for inspiration, with tatami mats housing a low table and numerous floor-mounted seats. With back supports in place, comfort AND relaxation will be combined to perfection.
