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.
Exceptional chairs require the special table. Currently the most appreciated by designers are the glass dining tables, which are universal and style enhancing. While choosing an appropriate table to your chairs set take care of the finish material: legs (eventually edges too) should be made of the same material which is used in chairs. In case you would like to mix the materials of chairs and table, remember that wood works good with mat metal or brass but with chrome - not necessarily. You can also freely connect the bright wood with both aluminium and chrome.
