Sara Castell. Dining room. September 24th , 2017.
If you are a dinner party host or hostess extraordinaire, I expect you to find this ideabook to be absurd. [Insert eye-rolling here.] For others, it still may take some time getting used to thinking outside the box. In the end, a builders floor plan may designate the room for dining, but its up to you to assign a use for the space based on how your family lives.
The metal dining chair. Metal furniture is popular in more minimalist spaces. Extremely hard wearing and easy to keep clean, metal chairs are terrific dining chair solutions.
A round table usually has one pedestal leg, offering extra leg room. I like the timber footrest on the bottom of this pedestal, as those seated can raise their feet off the ground and get a little extra support.
Everyone’s personal taste differs on how the back height of a chair should look in relation to table height. More contemporary tables like this one cope well with a shorter back, while a classic design may require a taller back. For lumbar support, a back height between 12 and 16 inches is ideal.
Generally, the length of time any one person can sit comfortably on a dining chair is three to four hours less if the chair has no padding. Your chairs may already come with a fixed upholstered seat cushion; if not, having a detachable cushion made is not difficult. The insert should be firm and generous, as this not only will enhance the structure of the cushion but will keep your friends and family from visiting the chiropractor.
