Katherina Kolb. Dining room. September 24th , 2017.
If you are buying off the showroom floor, a good way to judge the quality of an upholstered chair is to feel under the seat. If it’s hollow, it may not be worth your money. Feel for tightly woven webbing, usually made of jute or nylon, as this is the strongest. The coil springs are held together by this webbing. Stretchy, elastic webbing is a cheaper version and won’t last as long. A quality hardwood chair frame that has been doweled small, round wooden pegs, glued and screwed into the timber joints will last a lifetime.
The round dining table. A more intimate space loves a round dining table. If you prefer to entertain small groups of friends and family, or you don’t have a dedicated dining room, round could be for you.
Let’s get warmed up to the idea of repurposing the dining room by removing the table setting and all but one chair. Now you have the home office you’ve been wanting. Use a couple of drawers in the adjacent buffet for file storage. Return chairs to table when company arrives. Easy. Done.
The most comfortable seat size is around 15 0,5 inches across the back and 18 inches across the front. The seat should be 15 to 18 inches deep. If it is too deep, it will press against the back of the legs and cause slouching.
Clear the table and chairs and find your center in a mediation room like this. A daily reminder to relax and meditate or perform a few yoga stretches will do wonders for renewing your mind after a stressful day.
