When deciding on the dining chairs for our new home, the last thing I wanted was any regular and boring chair that you see in any home, not another Eames inspired dining chair, please. My partner highlighted the need for our dining chairs to come with cushioned seats and armrests so that they are comfortable to sit in. You may also want to think about the cleaning and maintenance of the dining chairs, where food and drinks spills are likely to occur.
As we loved the look and idea of having mismatched dining chairs that we can easily switch out when there is a need to freshen up our home, we had lots of fun shopping and we also took our time to put together our dining space. Having comfortable seating options enabled us to enjoy long hours of chatting and sitting at the dining table for food and heartfelt conversations.
