First things first - What type of dining chairs do you need?

Are you looking for dining chairs that would fit any informal event or meal, or do you need something more specialised for an elegant space or for formal dinner parties? Do you have young children? Do you have a large or growing family?

Once you have decided on your needs, it's time to look at the variety of colours, styles and materials available. At The Furniture Trader, you can find everything from elegant timber-based models with armrests to modern designs with woven linen or velvet materials that are ideal for contemporary homes.

When you've selected an ideal style, colour and material that suits your lifestyle and needs, it's time to get a little more personal with your selection process by taking into account factors like comfort level, size, price range, and durability.

Finding the right dining chair for your room

Make sure you choose the right style dining chair for your space. If you have a modern or contemporary home, then neutral coloured, streamlined and simple dining chair designs may be a good choice. On the other hand, if you have a more traditional or cottage-style home, then darker tones and natural materials like timber or leather may be what you're looking for. Something else to consider is that as styles and interior designs change over time, you may want to choose something that will suit a variety of settings as your tastes and preferences change.

Secondly, think about how comfortable your dining chairs will be. Some dining chairs are designed with padding and cushioning that can make them extremely comfortable to sit in for hours on end. Others are simple but sleek enough that they won't take up too much visual space and are understated. However, you need to make sure they are comfortable.

And finally - consider whether or not you want dining chairs that have armrests. These can add comfort when eating or sitting for lengthy periods, making them ideal for people who suffer from back pain or arthritis.

What type of dining chairs does The Furniture Trader have?

When it comes to choosing dining chairs for your home, we have different options ranging from traditional to modern.

Traditional dining chairs are often simple in design and usually rely on the use of padding and fabric to provide support and may come in earthy tones like brown and tan. They're typically made out of timber and may feature leather or faux leather upholstery.

Modern style dining chairs usually feature sleek designs that may incorporate some traditional or 'retro' design elements, but typically have muted colours like greys, blues and blacks.

When deciding which type of chair is right for you, it's important to consider your lifestyle and what style of furniture would work best in your home setting.

Additionally, make sure that the chair is comfortable enough so that you will be able to sit in it comfortably for extended periods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which type of chair is best for my dining room?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best chair for your dining room will vary depending on the style, size and type of table that you have and the size of the room and the interior design you have settled on.

However, some general tips that may be helpful include:

  • Select the right size of chair and number of chairs for your table and room
  • Ensure the materials are easy to clean and are suitable for your lifestyle
  • Choose a colour scheme that harmonises with other furniture pieces in your dining room and home
  • Choosing a style that suits your modern or traditional interior design
  • Making sure that the chair is comfortable enough to sit in for hours at a time
  • Choosing a chair with a high back, armrests and good spinal support

How can you tell if a dining chair is comfortable or not?

Dining tables are the centrepiece for many homes. It’s where family and guests gather to share meals and engage in conversations that shape our thoughts and lives.

When it comes to selecting your dining chairs, you should consider factors like your height, weight, and shape. It is also important to take into account the material and construction of the chair. For example, if you have young children who might spill food or drinks, or if you are prone to back pain or discomfort, choose dining chairs upholstered in leather for easy cleaning, or upholstered synthetic materials that don't cause heat build up that will make you uncomfortable, are important factors. 

If you suffer from a back condition, you’ll know it's also important to be able to sit down and stand up easily without assistance or the worry of exasperating your condition. Therefore, armrests may be an important consideration. Fortunately, we have stylish dining chair designs that will help you make a smart choice if this is the case - and you'll have a beautiful piece of furniture that you will be proud to display in your home whatever the case.

To test whether a particular chair is comfortable or not, come into one of our four showrooms and sit in a dining chair design of your liking for at least 10 minutes before making any decision. If you feel uncomfortable after sitting in it for this long, we encourage you to try another chair.

Remember, dining chairs are a long-term investment that will usually get a lot of use. We are here to help you make the right decision based on your comfort and lifestyle requirements.

How much does a good dining chair cost?

A quality dining chair from The Furniture Trader can cost anywhere from $149 to $399. But whatever the cost, you can be sure that you will go home with a dining chair that is well designed, stylish and durable. A full set of dining chairs can be a substantial investment, so whether you're looking for an everyday chair or something that will be used only occasionally, it is important to consider your needs when purchasing. Additionally, it is helpful to think about what kind of fabric the seat and back are made out of. Higher-quality chairs often use fabrics such as cotton, velvet, linen, or woollen cloths that are resistant to wear and tear.

When shopping for a dining chair, take the time to test it out by sitting in different positions and see how it feels – this will help you determine which one is best suited for your unique body type and lifestyle and that suits your budget and taste.

Do dining chairs have to match the table?

Is it okay to have different dining chairs? These days, modern interior designs are more often than not of an eclectic taste and style. This means that they derive from ideas, styles and tastes that are garnered from a broad and diverse range of sources. 

A quick browse through any home decor and interior design magazine will reveal that there's a contemporary trend of mixing furniture designs to come up with a unique style that suits your home and tastes. 

Therefore, your dining chairs don't need to be an exact match for your dining table. 

What you are looking for is a type of chair that compliments your dining table and dining room. Try to find something that may not be an exact style match but has complimentary colours. Perhaps you can find a plain tan velvet or brown leather dining chair that goes well with a raw timber table. What you are matching here is the natural tones of the wood and earth. 

If you have a glass topped dining table, you could try complimenting it with a chair that has woven grey upholstery that suits the lightness and openness of the room. All you have to do is let your imagination take you to where your personal style takes you.

However, if you are looking to perfectly match your dining chairs to a table, many of our dining chair designs have matching dining tables that are available from our showrooms and you can also browse them on our website.
