If you are thinking of doing the job yourself you need to have the know-how of the process to get it done as well as have the time to put into the project of taking apart the old chairs and replacing the cloth, and likely the padding underneath, with new materials. There are plenty of books out there on how to do this process and you may even be able to find a video or two online that will walk you through the process of reupholstering your dining chairs.
Your classic dining chair is usually a wood affair with an upholstered back. The mid-Georgian-style mahogany dining chair, with hand carved detail and fitted loose seat, is an example of this traditional style, offering both elegance and comfort when sharing a meal with good friends. Another way to go is a steel chair like the Robert Mallet Stevens iconic steel chair of 1928. This chair is extremely streamlined and sleek; it screams simple luxury. You can usually find brushed and polished finishes; powder coated chairs in a range of colors are also available. Of course, if you do opt for a designer chair, the price tag will run a tad higher than something you'd find at Ikea. Metal chairs go well with glass or metal dining tables and they also complement the Bauhaus style.
If you have a dining table and dining chairs set that have a very distinctive look, you may have realized you can change up the look of the dining table by adding a tablecloth, napkins and other accents, but the chairs still don't match. What if you have to replace your dining room table altogether? While you may be able to find the same wood color, if the accented look of the table clashes with the designs and upholstery on the chairs, it just won't work. So what's the solution? There are a few of them.
