Dining Room / February 9, 2018 / Priscilla Douglass.
Holiday season is already at the doorstep and all of us are busy in our preparations for a gala time with the near & dear ones. Cleaning up the home, updating the furniture, beautifying the home spaces, gifting one another and stocking up the pantry- the holiday spirit rings in ample festive mood, joyousness and a lot of work as well!
Finally, think about how many people you need to comfortably seat on a daily basis, then add a few extra, just in case you are ever hoping to have a fun dinner party. We always think that you should try to accommodate an extra four people and with that knowledge in mind, you can go to town choosing chairs that will easily squeeze into your space and around your table.
Wooden chairs, finished with a luxuriously quilted seat cushions, not only look pretty, they are fantastically comfortable as well, making them ideal for both formal and informal dining. The only aspect to be very careful about is the fabric covering the pads, as it will need to be washable. Nobody wants to deal with pesky pesto stains or tomato marks, long-term and family homes always seem to encounter spills.
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!
