Unless you’re going to change your dining table, as well, you’re going to be choosing chairs that don’t necessarily pair with your existing table. Luckily for you, mixing and matching your furniture is a hot trend!
However, you’ll want to make sure your furniture choices look deliberate and carefully made. Feel inspired by the following examples:
Why Comfort Matters
Just because it’s a dining chair, it doesn’t mean it has to be any less comfortable than any of the other chairs you might have in your home.
Think about chairs with plenty of cushioning or springs, or opt for a chair with arms for an extra comfortable design, perfectly leaning back and relaxing after a particularly big meal.
NANOOK DINING CHAIR
Nanook is the master of bears, the one who decides the luck of the hunters in the Arctic regions. NANOOK Dining Chair blends the beauty and grandiosity of this animal. This dining room chair has a strong presence balanced with the elegance given by a golden nailhead trim and the button detailing on the inner back.
While it might be a touch more difficult to keep clean (especially if you have small children), go for fabric dining chairs, instead of leather, which can be irritating and uncomfortable to sit on for extended periods of time.
BOURBON DINING CHAIR
With origins in France, the House of Bourbon was a dynasty known for its class and luxury. BOURBON Dining Chair embodies this opulence through its button-tufted inner back, rich cotton velvet and ebony wood veneer legs. This fabric chair makes up any refined dining room design.
If you have chosen aesthetic demands like a leather or wooden chair, invest in some stylish and chunky seat cushions to give yourself an added boost of comfort. And when talking about leather chairs Poltrona Frau is the obvious choice!
Amelie designed by Claudio Bellini for Poltrona Frau is a simple, but precious dining chair. “A seat of lithe, natural elegance. Ideal for the scenography of contemporary living. It is beautifully finished in Pelle Frau® leather.”
