This guide will provide an introduction to dining chairs, and will cover the following:

  1. Types Of Dining Chairs

First of all, we will cover the styles of dining chairs:

Dining chair shape:

If each specific shape is counted as a style, we have reason to believe that there will be more than 10,000 styles of dining chairs. These styles include the works of some very well-known dining chair designers in Europe and America, as well as similar models.

There are also new products by young designers in the new era, so the names of many chairs themselves are named after the designers.

dining chairs

If it is simple to divide, we can divide the styles into dining chairs with armrests and dining chairs without armrests. This division will be simpler.

If divided according to the size, we can divide it into two types: adults and children. According to the ease of installation, it can be divided into disassembly and assembly dining chairs and fully assembled dining chairs.

dining chairs

They can also be divided into rotating dining chairs and fixed dining chairs, dining chairs with wheels, and dining chairs without wheels according to whether they can be rotated.

Dining chair style:

People like to divide dining chairs into various styles. Of course, some furniture styles are also mixed temperaments. In order to facilitate a greater understanding, we have included pictures and texts to distinguish various styles as follows:

  1. Nordic minimalist style

It is said that about half of the designers in the world come from Northern Europe.

This ratio may be relatively exaggerated, but it is precisely this point that shows that the design of furniture or chairs originated in Europe.

The European style represents simplicity to a certain extent, and the concept of smooth minimalism has led to some minimalist works. Simplicity is not necessarily simple, not necessarily crude; many are all plastic.

The classic styles of Nordic chairs are made of materials or all solid wood, and some have been popular for more than a hundred years and have been enduring for a long time!

  1. American Retro Industrial Style

Whether it is American or European retro industrial style, it is basically the evolution of the TOLIX CHAIRS series.

There are original versions, reduced versions, enlarged versions, and other versions. Different sizes, through these seemingly cold metals, seem to tell the vicissitudes of the years.

These highly industrial dining chairs are blended into the corresponding environment by designers, and some regular tables or bar tables are intertwined and are widely used in cafes, bars, hotels, and other occasions.

In terms of colors and accessories, the colors are mostly rust, retro, caramel, dark, and matte. During the period, heightened bar chairs and bar stools were also derived.

  1. British Solid Wood Classic Style

For a long time, the style of British furniture has a different style and feel from the American style and other European countries.

On the whole, British furniture is more strictly prohibited, square, and more focused on security.

dining chairs

This includes a large number of dining chairs, and many styles of furniture have been popular for decades and are still popular, such as classic evergreen trees, one table, and four chairs, horn chairs, Windsor chairs, etc.

It has always been representative of the classic style of solid wood.

  1. Italian Minimalist Style

Italy is a place rich in European design.

Based on the simple European style, some Italian dining chairs have taken a more minimalist path.

Of course, this does not hinder the unique style and irreproducible style of these dining chairs, and more importantly, even if this furniture seems to use very few materials, it does not affect their sturdiness in the slightest.

This may be extremely simple. The style of furniture includes the unique charm of the chair.

  1. Chinese Rattan Weaving Cool Style

Although rattan furniture did not originate in China, and many rattan chairs originated from European designs, this does not affect the position and proportion of the Chinese rattan series in the furniture industry.

For example, in the Southern Hemisphere, many popular rattan dining chairs, including Australia and New Zealand, are designed and produced in China, not to mention, the domestic demand in China is even more amazing.
