Yesterday on the airplane ride home I was feeling rested and inspired. Taking a vacation has that effect :) I came up with a long To Do list of things I want to accomplish around the house this fall. Funny how when you live with so little while traveling you realize you really don’t need so much stuff in your home, just a few favorite functional and pretty pieces to make it feel comfortable and happy.
Some of my rugs and furnishings are a little worn, so I’ll be replacing them with a few new things this season. My dining room chair slipcovers are the perfect example, I have four of the Ballard Designs parsons style chairs in my dining room. They’ve worked so well for our family for years I’m sticking with that style, just replacing the slipcovers with new fabric.
It brought to mind a few favorite styles of dining room chairs that always look chic in a space. Here are five no fail options for casual dining chairs that will always look great!
Simple and streamlined, a parsons style dining chair is a classic. Whether slipcovered or upholstered, the look is tailored and timeless.
I also have two wishbone chairs in my home, they live in corners as accents but come in handy when I need extra seating when people visit. Wishbone chairs have a unique look with their smooth rounded back support and rattan seat, they are simple and modern.
These all wood classics have long spindled backs, they can be stained or painted. Airy and elongated, they’re always a good looking choice.
Maybe I am under the influence of a recent trip to Paris, but this style has always been a favorite. The woven pattern coupled with the natural legs add oh so much charm to any dining space.
Known for their fretwork backs, these iconic chairs add geometric pattern and exotic flair. Find vintage pieces in natural rattan or more modern version lacquered in vivid hues.
Of course you never need to match all of your dining chairs, a mixed group always looks chic and inviting! What style of chair do you have in your dining room? Do you love the style, or would you trade them in for something different?
