One of the most controversial decisions arises when choosing dining chairs. The aesthetic impact of the dining table and chairs set, its harmony or contrast with the rest of the elements, is crucial. The color, design, materials, and comfort are also significant factors. These factors come into play depending on the specific expectations of use and current interior trends. We propose three possible paths to find the ideal combination of chairs for your dining room:
It involves choosing a dining table and chairs without extravagance or contrasts. We can opt for the classic style with a wooden table and chairs, but we can also consider other options such as a wooden or glass table with upholstered chairs in leather or fabric, adding color and texture. Although materials may vary, we keep the set of chairs in the same model and color, and with the same overall style.
The second path is that of measured contrast. We choose a classic wooden table model and complement it with the same model of Nordic-style chairs. We can vary their colors within the same range, seeking contrast between both elements but maintaining the coherence of both parts. It is about seeking contrast but following a pattern of harmony between the pieces, a recognizable common thread that structures the ensemble. With this typology, the goal is to achieve a circumstantial effect, almost accidental. It is suggested that the choice and arrangement of chairs respond to a collection and reuse of pieces within reach arbitrarily when, in reality, everything is perfectly planned.
Finally, we find the path of total contrast where a common thread is hardly observed. Models, colors, styles, and materials combine in a strange balance. There are no identical models; contrast or conjunction is sought with a differentiated range of colors and materials. Finding balance and making a good choice involves treating the ensemble like a patchwork. To do this, we must advance step by step, adding piece by piece to the ensemble and visualizing the final result concretely.
We propose a starting point: The table
Defining in advance the characteristics and materials of our dining table will serve as a support around which to arrange a set of dining chairs in a combination of models and colors.
