Dining Room / May 12, 2018 / Amelia Cao.
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.
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.
For a more interesting and unusual style of dining furniture, rustic bench seating should absolutely be considered, as it offers a beautifully unique aesthetic. Easy to combine with regular chairs, for a little diversity, bench seats are ideal for busy family homes, where the evening meal is considered to be a cherished moment of reflection and interaction. Children always enjoy a more fun style of furniture and with a bench seat, there's always room for one more guest.
When deciding on the type of table to pick, round tables offer another advantage that works in their favour: most of them have one, singular leg instead of four, conjuring up more legroom for diners.
