Dining Room / January 22, 2018 / Eva Cardwell.
The plants on the window sill create a natural atmosphere in this otherwise straight and simple dining area that boasts of a simple and small table with straight chairs. The white round chandelier is a lovely detail in this dining area filled with freshness and natural light.
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.
For dining chairs that are built to last, there's no better material than oak. One of the strongest, prettiest and most accessible woods currently available, oak can be whittled by any master craftsman, into a fabulous set of dining chairs that will last a lifetime. Because oak is such a beautiful material, it can be turned to represent any design genre to an incredible standard. Contemporary, retro or traditional chairs will always look great in oak, not to mention bench seats.
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.
