Buyers Guide - The Dining Table

Buyers Guide - The Dining Chair

What makes a great dining chair? If you want your dinner guests to stay for the cheese course then having comfortable dining chairs is a must. Chairs that are ergonomically designed or that have soft upholstery are ideal for long lazy meals to ensure your guests do not get fidgety. Arms can be a nice addition but bear in mind that chairs with arms are usually wider so if you are limited on space this may not be an option. Be careful to choose chairs that complement your dining table and check how much space you have around your table to ensure you have plenty of room to pull chairs in and out. Whether you choose chairs that are upholstered or not is sometimes a practical issue as those with young children may worry about keeping upholstered chairs clean but with advances in nanotechnology some fabrics have been developed which protect the fabric from dust and repel stains. Silver-ion based treatments and Teflon protection are also used for stain protection and sanitizing fabrics. Dining chairs made from polypropylene or polycarbon are tough and durable and have the added benefit that they are easy to clean and some can be used outside too. If you only occasionally have extra guests chairs that stack or fold neatly away can be very useful. Of course style is as important as comfort and practicality. Choosing a dining chair that fits your way of living and personal style is important. Choosing classic designs which will look good in years to come and have a timeless feel can be a wise decision. We showcase here our favourite dining chairs from our large range which we think are worthy of being in our top 10, whether it be for style, function, practicality or all three! Of course we have many more chairs to choose from so what will your favourite be?
