Need dining chairs to match my table

December 31, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hey guys,
I bought this dining room table (black legs) (dimensions 1.80m x 1.07m x 0.77m) but I didn't buy any chairs.
My problem is I don't know what style chairs to get.
Also what color should they be?

Your table would go with almost any contemporary chair you might like. I like any of the chairs shown below, and there are many more I would also like.

Why not show us what you're contemplating and we can comment on that since there are so many that would work. Colorwise, you're only constricted by what other colors might be close by in your home.

I WAS thinking contemporary but thought it might not match

Your table looks quite contemporary to me and would go with any of the chairs above. How formal or casual you want the room to be would also affect your choice. Plastic chairs are more casual. There's also a comfort factor, so it's best to sit in a chair before buying it, if possible.

Questions for you:
* you want a formal or casual feel overall or in between the two?
* table will seat 4 or 6 people comfortably?
* will use table every day?
* will use table once in a while?
* there are young children sitting at table?
* there are adults sitting at table only?
* you will sit and "dine" for an hour to 2 hours possibly?
* you will sit and use table for other work or projects?
* table is visually part of a larger social space?
* would be good to bring in a feeling of relaxation and comfort to a larger surround?
* would be good to bring in a feeling of classiness and style to a larger surround?
* I think a good budget per chair is __________?

Well if I was selecting dining table chairs for myself for this table, I would go with a modern "bucket / pod" single pedestal chair design perhaps that feels safe and secure with a surround or arms. Arms or chair sides that act like arms work well for short spurts of dining or longer more drawn out meals with friends. Since I love modern, I might even vary the color to 4 white and 1 blue and 1 green or something fun like that depending on the design interest of the rest of the room and space.

If you're budget minded...this Tobias chair from ikea is only $80. I have tested this chair and it's quite comfortable! Not perfect if you'd like a more formal look.

I love the Kartell chair at the top left but can't quite picture it with your table (not to say it won't work). I like the Soho Concept armchair and it comes in a variety of colors.

I hit send too soon... the Thayer Coggins armless dining chair is pricey but including it as example of similar style to the above chair that may work well with your table

Omgosh thank you guys for all the help! These were all great ideas but my hubby wanted something more traditional (sigh). I ended up buying this since I picked out the table

At least it's a simple chair that should work well with your table. You found a wonderful chair that is a delightful compromise.

Nice chair you found! I also like that the fabric can easily be changed when you get a wild hair. :)

anneshen, your choice is such a good one with the table because of the linear aspect of the chairs with the legs of your table. I went through your ideabooks and am not at all surprised with your choice. :)
