Dining Room / January 27, 2018 / Clara Mcclelland.
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.
You may use it every day for every meal, or simply for elegant dinner parties when old friends and important business associates drop by – we are, of course, talking about the dining room. But regardless of how many times your dining room sees some action, it doesn’t excuse the fact that it needs to flaunt as much practicality and style as the rest of your home.So, with beauty in mind, let’s take a look at some tried-and-tested ways to add a touch of glamour to your dining space without breaking the bank…
The style of table you have selected will directly impact on which chairs will work. For example, you'll often find that circular tables can accommodate far wider seats and even high backs will work well, wheres more angular designs often require compact chairs, as they'll have legs to contend with.
If you have one formal and one casual dining space, you can really go to town with different chair designs for both. A casual spot will do best with sociable, comfy seating that naturally leads to conversation, whereas a formal setting is where you can play around with luxury fabrics. If you only have one dining room, you're going to need to combine all of these elements in one set of chairs, if possible!
