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.
Once you have chosen your table, you can choose your chairs. Scale is equal to comfort, and the wrong chair will be a cruel, daily reminder of that.
For a bookworm, turning the dining room into a library may prove to be a useful solution. And if you also have family members who treat your house like a hotel, install a Murphy bed within your built-ins. This also helps to alleviate the problem of finding somewhere to stuff that pesky air mattress each morning.
This stunning rosewood table is 54 inches square, which is a perfect size for six people. If you need to seat only four people, a table 36 to 44 inches square will suffice.
Just as with a rectangular or square table, measure your space and apply the same chair measurements. Allow 26 inches per person for elbow room on a three- to six-seater and 24 inches for six or more.
