Materials vs. Design

When thinking about dining chairs, most people immediately think of traditional wood designs, perhaps with an upholstered seat. Until the rise of mid-century modern design, this was generally the case. However, beginning with ground breaking designs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Ray and Charles Eames, and Harry Bertoia, new materials including plywood, plastic, fiberglass and metal began to be used in dining chair design. This was the dining chair revolution--new materials were used for their own distinct, even deliberately artificial qualities instead of copying traditional materials like wood or marble. By using combinations of materials and colors, they created tension and harmony without fuss or superfluous ornament.

Types of Styles

If you are looking for a traditional dining chair design, Smart Furniture offers chairs in all of the classical styles, including Windsor style chairs, characterized by several thin, vertical rods between the seat and rounded top of the chair. We also have queen Anne style characterized by a single ornate slate of wood installed vertically as the spine of the chair cushioned seats that often have a traditional fabric or pattern wood. Maybe you're more of a Chippendale type, a style of chair that was originally inspired in the 17th century by the slender legs and ornate carved seatbacks in Chinese furniture and are now characterized by a single center piece with delicate carving in the back. Smart Furniture offers a great selection of these traditional designs from great manufacturers including Lexington, Stanley, American Drew, Legacy Classic Home, Tommy Bahama, and Dovetail. For modern and contemporary dining chairs, Smart Furniture has an outstanding selection from such leading brands as Herman Miller, Knoll, Kartell, Gus, Blu Dot, Calligaris and many more.
