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.
We suspect that almost everybody has seen these dining chairs before, as the design has become nothing short of iconic. Structural wooden legs, connected with black metal struts and topped off with an ergonomic moulded plastic seat create a beautifully retro meets modern aesthetic and thanks to the popularity of the style, there's a version to suit all budgets. Even IKEA has a range of these, making them a cost-effective and practical investment.
