Dining Room Chair Trends

Mismatched Chairs

Mismatched chairs will be a popular trend today, as we saw it getting started over the past few years. These can look quite attractive if you have a good eye for style. The idea isn’t to throw just any chairs together but to find ones (usually two kinds) that look good together. They work best with long rectangular tables, though you can use them with any table, really. Most people put large chairs with more cushioning at the ends of the table. It makes it more comfortable to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while conversing with a loved one and is perfect for someone who likes to entertain. The side chairs are traditional-style table chairs that help ensure that you have the proper posture while eating. In a small household, you can eat in the side chairs and relax and talk in the end chairs, so the table basically becomes the home’s center point.

Green Materials

Another popular trend is having dining room table chairs that use environmentally friendly materials, primarily wood, in their construction. Wood is a replenishable resource, while plastics and metal are not. These other materials also go through more processing, which adds to their environmental impact. Wooden chairs biodegrade and are recyclable, so they help reduce the carbon footprint.

There are plenty of ways to change the appearance of your dining room while sticking with modern trends like mismatched chairs and wooden frames. If you choose a brand with a fabric covering, you get the added benefit of cushioning and various colors that will accent any room.
