WHAT STYLES OF DINING CHAIR ARE AVAILABLE?
When it comes to adorning yourwith chairs, Habitat has many options to offer; from variations on your typical chair, to atypical options you may have not yet considered. For example, chairs tend to be the go-to, but a dining bench will often work well instead. A little bit on the quirky side, they add a bold, slightly retro touch to any dining room - as long as you all agree when to make a move. Take a look at the many designs our experts have created: never mind sitting down to dinner, we’ll eat our hat if you don’t feel inspired.
If space is an issue, might we suggest that folding dining chairs are the way forward? If it’s a tight squeeze moving past the kitchen table, store chairs in a cupboard until meal times. This type of chair is also a fantastic idea if you tend to have guests over a lot, with the option to tuck away out of sight on days when it's just you and the family. Stackable styles, or a stacking dining chair, also work well to this end.
Habitat has a collection that caters to all tastes, from the incredibly modern to the quintessentially traditional; think everything from retro shapes to minimalistic lines. Which one will have you sitting comfortably?

WHAT MATERIALS AND COLOURS ARE HABITAT CHAIRS AVAILABLE IN?
At Habitat we house an extensive range of dining chairs and benches, all constructed in varied materials. In a nutshell, there’s something to suit every home. If you prefer your kitchen to play into the industrial trend, then our metal dining chairs will fit nicely. On the other hand, if you love the vintage look, our wooden designs come complete with traditional spindles - ideal for elevating your kitchen or dining room and adding a unique touch. If you want to ensure comfort, then go for upholstered - fabric dining chairs are perfect for those extra long sittings at dinner.
If your style tends to be on the quirky side, then chairs that blend textures will be right up your street; think leather dining chairs with wooden legs, or wooden chairs on metal legs. Both styles play into the vintage vibe, which will never go out of style. That’s not to say contemporary can’t be equally striking. At Habitat we recommend our plastic sculpted stools. So colourful, they’re practically works of art.
Speaking of colours, choose from white, black and green; all colours that work well if you are looking to evoke a Scandi vibe, while blue and red present bold, contemporary choices. Which will colour you happy?
HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR DINING ROOM LOOK
Dining tables are a standout piece in any dining room, yet that doesn’t mean they have to take all the attention. Mix and match your dining room chairs for a funkier take on an essential. When it comes to the rest of the room, we recommend selecting a chicfor your chairs to stand on. Here’s a tip: make sure it’s 24 inches either side of the table, otherwise you may trip when moving the chair in and out in order to get up. (This sounds like it could cause a lot of trouble, not to mention accidents.) Fancy another tip? Make sure you don’t buy anything too fluffy; such a rug will always be on hand to swallow up excess crumbs - and this isn’t a good thing.
Work with the walls too.or shelves can give the room a unique, library-style feel, or a statement piece of artwork could work well to stir up conversation at dinner parties. Finally, think about investing in a grand sideboard. All your favourite trinkets, posh crockery and fresh flowers will all be at home here, and in turn make your dining room - and chairs - truly feel like home.
