There are many things that we can't live without in our homes, and one of them is furniture. We always want the best things at home, which will last longer and pay off the money that we spend on them. Dining chairs are one of those things that add to the beauty of our homes, they attract our visitor's attention, and unite families together.
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.
For those looking for something a little more low key, there's always estate sales and yard sales. These are great places to find hidden treasures. Do some searching and you can find some classic fixeruppers. Many chairs can be sanded and painted over; you can add slips or reupholster the seat covers. Additionally, you could add throw pillows for a more cozy, comfortable look. Consider painting a set of similar chairs different colors for a more compelling look. Try sticking to primary colors for a Mondrian-inspired look; or if you prefer one color, try gradations, paint the chairs different shades to achieve a Pantone-ish gradient. Or, if you've found an assortment of mismatched chairs, paint them one uniform color to give the dining room a unified look; each chair retains its distinctive shape and personality, adding depth to the room. For an assortment of mix matched chairs, such as low lying stools, high back chairs etc, stick to a close range of shades. The hodge podge already makes your chairs stand out, so you want to keep things together by choosing one shade, for example, dark walnut or light blonde.
