We suspect that almost everybody has seen these dining chairs before, as the design has become nothing short of iconic. Structural wooden legs, connected with black metal struts and topped off with an ergonomic moulded plastic seat create a beautifully retro meets modern aesthetic and thanks to the popularity of the style, there's a version to suit all budgets. Even IKEA has a range of these, making them a cost-effective and practical investment.
It's a commonly accepted myth that dining table and chairs have to all match absolutely perfectly, but a little variation can work terrifically well. By selecting a few different shades for seat pads, a funky and modern look can be effortlessly created and against a neutral backdrop, such as a white wall, the visual impact will be utterly incredible. Different colour palettes could even be used, seasonally.
Round tables are an important aesthetic option, with some clear advantages. They are more welcoming, versatile, social and less annoying for diners: the legs are less uncomfortable and because there are no corners, we can avoid painful encounters. However, they require a very special space and are not suitable for crowded parties.
The Gray color gives a cool tone to the dining area, the neat and simple dining table with a bench and modern chairs are consistent with the simple charm of this cool dining area, that can easily double as study.
