The main choice for dining room chairs is wood, and you'll often find that this is the predominant choice of material for them. Oak is a very common one because it is a classic style of wood which is very easy to care for and is very durable and strong so that you can be confident your chair will last you as lifetime. This oak is often grown specifically for furniture making so is grown to be strong and top quality for an attractive finish. The same goes for other cuts of wood such as pine or mahogany. Pine is a very cheap kind of wood which can be great for dining rooms because the soft colour of pine is very attractive. Mahogany is at the other end of the scale and is very expensive and stylish, and if you have an old fashioned style dining room that is styled with a period look then the luscious dark wood of mahogany is definitely the thing you're looking for as your chairs will look very good in it.
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 high table, you can get bar stool chairs or bistro chairs that are available as both with back support or without back support. For traditional sitting arrangement, armchairs having head and foot support can be selected. The material of these chairs also make a big difference. Most affordable chairs are available in wood, metal, wood composite, acrylic and rattan.
