Upholstered Dining Chairs

A dining room table is one of those places where family and friends gather for meals, but it’s even more than that. You’ll tell and hear stories, have lengthy conversations and entertain at times. Upholstered dining chairs from us at Pottery Barn make it a comfy, attractive place to sit and linger. Oftentimes the chairs will double for extra seating in other rooms when guests are over and you need extra seats. So, comfort is always a high priority.

Features to Consider

Tufted chairs and those with high backs provide a formal elegance to the room. Those with armchairs are ideal for spacious areas or for setting at the heads of a rectangular table. Or they can be used all the way around a round or square table. Chairs without arms take up less room and are suited to any sized table. They typically rest on the long stretches of a rectangular table for six or eight guests or more.

Skirts on chairs dangle from the seat to the floor. Soft cushions and a variety of custom patterns and prints make these chairs a great option for any dining or kitchen table. The designs in the chairs can make your room pop in an instant. You can coordinate window treatments and tabletop accessories to blend the motif. The chairs made with cloth upholstery without skirts have a more open appearance than the ones with skirts. You’ll be able to see under your table with these chairs. They come in a wide spectrum of color and pattern options. Stripes, florals and abstract designs allow you to customize the chairs to suit your tastes and to fit your room with personality.

Slipcovers are another option for dining chairs. The upholstered covers slide easily over chairs and make it easy to change the colors in the room without replacing the chairs you love.

Set the Tone

Classic leather chairs fit any decor depending on the construction of the chairs. Contemporary chairs have sleek, defined lines and legs. Tufted leather and curved legs exude a sophisticated tone all on their own. Eclectic leather chairs might have a funky arch on the back of the chair or retro legs reminiscent of the 1960s. Leather can be contemporary, formal or eclectic, and it comes in various hues. Either way, leather is always doable and durable. It’s been around for ages and it’s not going away anytime soon. Leather is also easy to maintain with just a quick wipe using a damp cloth.

Whether you use slipcovers or choose an upholstered chair collection, guests and family will relish the time they spend at your table. The conversations held and the meals that are eaten form the memories they carry with them long after the evening is over.
