Dining Room / January 13, 2018 / Priscilla Douglass
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 you have one formal and one casual dining space, you can really go to town with different chair designs for both. A casual spot will do best with sociable, comfy seating that naturally leads to conversation, whereas a formal setting is where you can play around with luxury fabrics. If you only have one dining room, you're going to need to combine all of these elements in one set of chairs, if possible!
