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.
While upholstered seats might sound a little traditional or old fashioned, they are actually just exceptionally classic, elegant and beautiful. To modernise traditional dining chairs, grey fabric is a very on-trend choice that will never date or look anything other than sumptuous and stylish. For a really luxurious choice, deep velvets and stunning brocades should be at the top of the potential fabrics list.
