If you are planning to give your dining room or kitchen a new look, you should not miss this blog. The 10 most beautiful design dining room chairs are set out below. Although there is no arguing about taste, it is almost inevitable that you will find your dream chairs here. It is of course important which dining table you are going to use. You can read more about this at the bottom of this page.
1. Tulip, Model No. 150
In 1955, Eero Saarinen designed this tulip model that is still immensely popular almost 70 years later. The base is made of aluminum and the shell with armrests is made of one piece of fiberglass. The seat is equipped with a latex foam cushion. These chairs are not only fantastic to look at, they are also extremely durable.
Verner Panton is regarded as one of the most influential designers of the last century. His furniture is striking and futuristic. The Panton is the first chair ever made from a single piece of plastic. Also known as the 'S-chair', this chair has also been available as a smaller version for children for several years.
3. Tulip, Model No. 151
Simultaneously with Tulip model No. 150 became model No. 151 designed without armrests. The base is identical, but the absence of the armrests accentuates the tulip-like shapes of this dining chair even more.
4. Artifort Beso
The Artifort Beso Chair was designed a few years ago by the Dutch designer Khodi Feiz. The chair was designed based on the idea that it is not necessary to move from the dining table to the sofa during long dinners. The name Beso means 'kiss' in Spanish.
5. Side Chair DSW
The Side Chair DSW was designed by Charles & Ray Eames and it is impossible to imagine the international furniture landscape without it. The organically shaped seat shell has four wooden legs. Today, this comfortable model is produced by Vitra.
6. Kartell AI chair
This chair has a unique story. The Kartell AI Chair is the first designer chair designed and created by artificial intelligence. The designer Philippe Starck commissioned the artificial intelligence (ai) system to create a chair that uses as little energy and material as possible. The result is a stunning dining chair made from recycled thermoplastic techno polymer. Big advantages: airy and open design, affordable and fully recyclable!
The DAR was also designed by Charles & Ray Eames. DAR stands for Dining Armchair Rod. The metal (rod) leg is inspired by the Eiffel Tower. A similar model is also available as RAR, Rocking Armchair Rod, the so-called 'rocking chair edition'.
8.Ant, Model No. 3100
This model with three legs was designed in 1951 by the Danish designer Arne Jacobsen. It is his most famous design which is also known as 'the ant chair'. It is one of the strongest dining room chairs made of plywood. The shape of the ant is therefore not only reflected in the design, but also in the durable and robust character of these chairs.
9.Louis Ghost Chair
This dining room chair with a nice wide seat was designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell. The chair is inspired by the late baroque style of the 18th century. Bizarre to see how this designer managed to turn a classic item into a modern piece of art. Despite their transparent appearance, the chairs are real eye-catchers. And because you can look 'through' it, your beautiful design dining table also comes into its own.
10. Welding Chair
The Lassen Chair is a tribute to the Danish architect brothers Mogens and Flemming Lassen. Magnus Sangild and Marianne Viktor combined organic shapes with a geometric style. The result is a truly balanced chair with a sturdy seat.
Matching dining table
You have now seen 10 beautiful dining room chairs, but how do you know which chair fits your dining table. This must be interpreted both literally and figuratively. Before you order your chairs, measure the free space from the floor to under the table top. Then subtract at least two centimeters from this. The result is the maximum height of the armrests of your dining room chairs. If you opt for dining room chairs without armrests, it is of course not necessary to measure.
The total width of the chair is also important. In addition to the width of the seat, take into account at least 20 centimeters of free space between the seats. If you have a table with two or four legs at the ends of the tabletop, keep at least 15 centimeters of free space next to the dining room chairs. With tables with a leg in the middle, such as the tulip table, you do not have to take this into account.
