Dining Room / March 3, 2018 / Jayda Hummel.
Don't forget to think about the height of your table, as well as the shape! If you have a surface which is more like a breakfast bar than a standard table, you'll need to look at taller seats and stools, for the sake of comfort, if nothing else! A cohesive aesthetic will depend on the right height as well!
If you’re in the market for a new dining set, resist the urge to grab the matching server and china cabinet. Instead, take a trip around the store and look for pieces that may highlight or even contrast your table and chairs. Two-toned pieces and painted finishes make it easy to create a great-looking combination.
Finally, how stringent are you about having a perfectly matching set of chairs? Maybe it would work a little better to give the kids a bench seat to enjoy, while you and the other adults all have proper chairs? Or maybe you all want a personalised vintage chair that you've painted yourself? Either way, get out of the mindset that each chair has to be exactly the same.
If your overall home decor follows a delicate and sophisticated route, a dining table with subtle silhouette can be ideal for you. Take a cue from the Nordic design here, with its slim lines and stylish cosiness. Grey and white pairs with light-hued wood and floral patterns for a visual impact that is endearing, and it complements the floor too.
