Julissa Xirah. Dining room. September 24th , 2017.
These fully upholstered dining chairs look incredibly comfortable. The seats are gently molded, and the backs are rounded for lumbar support, ensuring guests will enjoy their stay.
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.
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.
Growing up in the land of Southern Hospitality, I thought I would never in my life propose the idea of repurposing the dining room. Having an eat-in kitchen, I like many others can count on two hands the number of times we use the dining room each year. Why deem a room necessary when its only useful 10 days out of 365.
Many dining chair backs have a rake, also known as a slope. As on the metal chairs shown here, this slant can be from 5 to 8 degrees from the top. It stops people from sliding off when they get too relaxed.
