While choosing dining room chairs, it is important to consider the colors, designs, patterns, shape and fabrics. In the past, dining chairs were mostly made of wood, were straight-backed and sparse. These days, the best of modern dining chairs are made of rattan, wicker and metal. Modern dining chairs are generally high backed yet slim and easy to handle. Some of them are luxurious too. The egg chair is an example. The more sparse looking chairs are elegant, covered with delightful fabric and plumb cushions. Keep the fabric, color and pattern of dining chairs in line with the rest of the decor of the room.
Why "allowable"? Well throughout history chairs have reflected the status of the person sitting on them. The size, decoration and sheer ornateness of the chair saying a lot about the person sitting in it. Indeed in classical times to the time of the pharaohs, the chair was reserved for the high and mighty, only kings, lords and bishops were allowed chairs at all, the rest of the populace had to do with sitting on chests, benches or stools.
In the past, a chair was just that - a place where you would rest your aching back. Designs were straightforward and simple and you would be foolish to expect anything more from chairs. These days, however, chairs have become art in themselves. Some pieces are so cleverly made that they look like objects of art but double up as comfortable chairs too.
