What’s in a Dining Chair?
How do you choose a dining chair that’s going to best suit your dining table?
A good rule: You want 12 inches between the top of the dining chair and the bottom of your table. When you're measuring a dining chair, make sure that you take into account the apron of your table. This is the wooden panel that connects the legs to the top. Make sure that each chair can be easily pushed under the table.
Do You Chairs Have to Match Your Table?
We believe that contrast can be a good thing. No, you don’t have to match your chairs to your dining table. We even have customers that mix different colours in the same chair (hyper link to dining chairs) design.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to furniture. What goes with what, and what doesn’t, is completely subjective. We always say ‘Go with your own taste and not what is in fashion, or what you think others will like. You’ll have to live with it after all.’
Comfort Over Design?
Again, it’s what works for you, but it’s a good idea to think about how often your new dining chairs are going to be used. For example; if you rarely eat at your dining table and prefer to eat in your living room in front of the TV, and you don’t do much entertaining, comfort is not going to be as important to you. However, if you spend a lot of time around your table, then comfort is important.
Covered dining chairs (hyper-link to one of the faux leather chairs) look smart and also provide comfort. Faux leather for example, is easy to keep clean, hard-wearing and modern.
Velvet Dining Chairs
Velvet diners make an impact. This rich and luxurious fabric can make an otherwise ordinary dining table stand-out. It’s easier to get rid of marks and spills from velvet than from fabric dining chairs. Some of our customer's mix and match velvet and faux leather by using two velvet designs at each end of the table and a faux leather design around it.
More Benefits of Faux Leather Dining Chairs
Faux leather is one of the most durable materials and it can be placed with either modern or traditional dining tables. Our faux leather designs come in a spectrum of colours. Faux leather, as well as real leather is easy to wipe down and keep clean and pairing these gorgeous looking chairs with a solid wood table makes a real statement.
So, to find the best dining chair for you, think about how you use your dining room. Will your new chairs match the existing colour scheme? With variety in mind, we have added lots more colours to our existing range. Browns and greys remain great sellers, but we are seeing increasing sales in our coloured chairs, with pink and teal blue becoming very popular.
