Dining Room / January 23, 2018 / Crystal Lundy.
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.
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.
Another advantage of round tables is that they present no corners, meaning they are more comfortable (and less dangerous, when thinking about little toddlers manoeuvring around those sharp table edges).And let’s be honest: who hasn’t stumbled into a table’s edge and walked away with a sore or bruised hip?
It’s no secret that open-plan areas are a big hit these days, considering how much potential they add to a home in terms of space and socialising. But even though kitchens and living rooms are by far the most common spaces being designed in open-plan layouts, it’s not uncommon to see a dining area sneaking in here and there.Let’s take a peek examples of open-plan living- and dining rooms, just in case you require some inspiration for your own home.
