Dining room chairs: selection guide
The chairs for the dining room should not be considered simple chairs to eat at the table, but often represent a real furnishing accessories , as found in one of the rooms of the house lived.
In the open spaces
The dining room, very often, is located in the same environment as the kitchen (which perhaps is represented by a simple kitchenette): this happens in the open spaces of the most modern houses.
In this case we must pay a minimum attention to the furniture and also decide what material we want the chairs to be placed at our table.
If the corner that serves as a kitchen is entirely in wood, we will certainly find elements of the same material even in the adjacent space; at this point it hardly matters where the table is exactly because wood will certainly be the most versatile material to be matched to the rest.
You can choose upholstered chairs, especially if the furniture is elegant or even have antique furniture.
If instead your style is easier or even modern
you can play with different colors that recall your surroundings: there are very colorful modern dining chairs or whimsical backs with which you can pick.
In houses built in the 50s or 60s, however, it is easier to have divided rooms.
The dining room also serves as a living room and is often laid only on special occasions, while “normal” meals are consumed mainly in the kitchen.

In the presence of antique furniture, the upholstered chairs we talked about before are fine (in fact, they are almost a must) here too, but you can also use Vienna straw chairs.
If the decor is not very pretentious but wood elements are still present, the classic straw chairs are very versatile, in some cases they also blend with the modern style.
Alternatively, there are also models covered or other materials such as plastic or wicker. The latter are certainly more suited to an outdoor environment, but in some modern or minimal furnishings you can also venture combinations of this type.
No one knows your home better than you, and no matter how many tips you may have, the first glance for furniture is yours. There are no rules that are too rigid but you must also have a certain taste if you want to mix more styles, especially in a dining room that, as was said, is perhaps the most lived area in a house (especially in the case of open space where it is located often just entered).
Never forget practicality, not to sacrifice too much in the name of beauty!
in the dining room: a table of furniture and capacious containers
In an open space the table becomes a furnishing object: with its place of honor in the center of the room, it is the protagonist of the environment and around it are placed chairs and containers, like little spectators.
If you are a socialite like the young couple that owns the house of this project, the indispensable requirement for the dining room is an extendable table to accommodate all the friends you want.
In a small or narrow and long room
choose a transparent glass table that will give the illusion of taking up less space.
If you have a large and airy space, go ahead to tables in any material, from solid wood tables inspired by the Scandinavian style to design tables with sculptural central support that serves as a decorative element for the entire living room.
