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.
The main patterns in contemporary furniture design are: simplicity, minimalism and functionality. Modern chairs are to be most of all usable - understated, supportive and comfortable. On the other hand they need to compose harmoniously with the whole interior style. Thanks to designers ideas you can make chairs the focal items of the room. You just have to remember about the style accordance and proportions.
Another option is to keep the chairs you have, but change the way they look by putting a cover over them. Gone are the days of big bulky covers that look as if you have tossed a garbage bag over your chairs. Today's covers for dining room chairs have a much more sleek and refined look and many have adjustments and ties so they will look like they were custom made for your chair. If you have the time and are good at sewing, you can even make some that are customized to your dining chairs. By being able to work with a pattern at home, and with the chairs, you can create a perfect fit.
