Dining chair designs for your dining room

Up your dining room game with these expert-approved dining chair designs.

The living room often relishes in the spotlight of home interiors, while its poor cousin, the dining room serves just as a utility – basic, functional and largely ignored. The dining room fulfils expectations without usually receiving the attention it deserves. Move over accent walls and pendant lights – no, you don’t even have to splurge on expensive figurines or extravagant artworks to give your dining room the look it deserves. The new-age dining chair designs can entirely change the narrative of your dining space without denting your bank balance. It’s true! Check out our ideas for dining table chairs and find your match. 

Wooden Dining Chair Designs Are A Classic

No matter what the ongoing trends, wooden dining chair designs are always bestsellers. They are so versatile, you have countless options to experiment with material, form and design. Instead of regular hard-backed chairs, you could also check out other upholstered options. Bamboo and wicker dining chairs in sets of 4 or 6 lend a natural and classic vibe to your dining room without the chunkiness that teak or sheesham wood designs would bring.

Shake Things Up With Dining Chairs In Mixed Colours

Who is boring? Definitely not you. If you are finding it hard to settle on one colour for your dining table and chairs, why not find a palette of colours that complements or contrasts each other? This theme goes best with dining chair sets of 6 or 4. The usual choices are black and white, beige and black, and cream and yellow. If you have a rebellious streak, you could experiment with more bold colour combinations.
