When comfort and style need to go hand-in-hand, there are few options better than tub dining chairs. Designed with ergonomics firmly in mind, tub chairs gracefully sweep around the backs of diners, creating a cosy and enclosed form of support that leads to better posture and as a result, improved digestive health too! Being such a simplistic construction design, tub chairs naturally lend themselves to flamboyant fabric selections.
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.
Finally, we had to lavish some well deserved praise on farmhouse dining chairs, as they naturally exude a certain homely charm that is impossible to resist. Usually made from simple pine and with an unfussy design, a coat of shabby chic pastel paint and a coat of furniture wax can really make them come alive. Tie-on cushion pads complete the look and add an extra level of comfort as well.
In our article today we are going to focus on this last aspect: do we want a round dining table or do we prefer rectangular? Some people prefer round tables and some find them much less functional than rectangular or square ones. However, both have their own advantages and also some drawbacks. So, let’s get it started: round tables versus rectangular ones.
