Upholstered Dining Chairs

Upholstered dining chairs are one of your best options if comfort is your primary requirement from these seating furniture pieces. More than just to give your family comfortable seating during dinner, the upholstery likewise provides you with a host of fabric options that make it easier for you to complement the existing decor in your dining room. Whether you are looking to match your existing furniture or to highlight your dining room theme further, dining chairs are important elements for these projects. Williams-Sonoma offers a wide selection of upholstered dining chairs in different styles, sizes and materials to suit your taste.

Apart from the upholstery, other factors also affect the comfort that the dining chairs can provide you. For instance, you are likely to be more comfortable sitting in a wooden chair with ample backrest for two hours than on an upholstered chair with a small backrest. In other words, size also matters when it comes to comfort, which means that you should not settle for an upholstered that measures smaller than 17 inches by 20 inches. For optimum comfort, choose upholstered dining chairs that measure 22 inches by 24 inches. If you want chairs with arms, always factor in an additional 6 inches when measuring for space and for compatibility with the dining table.

When measuring for size compatibility with the dining table, the upholstered dining chairs should be able to slide easily under the table. Allow for at least 12 inches distance between the height of the table and the chair to have more leg room and for a more relaxed seating. While upholstered dining chairs without arms and dining stools make it easier for you to get in and out of them, consider having dining chairs with arms. These types of dining chairs are especially helpful if you have toddlers, elderly persons or pregnant members of the family or guests as the arms provide both protection and support.

Once you have determined the size that you want for your upholstered dining chairs, you should then choose the type of design that you want, and the type of upholstery cover should figure prominently in this decision. In some of our offerings, you have more than 80 types of upholstery covers to choose from. Our other dining chairs, on the other hand, have only one choice for upholstery cover. Styles also vary when it comes to backrests, seats, legs and arm rests, which gives you more design inspirations to fiddle around with in your mind. Consider too, the durability of the build, the type of materials in the chair and how light or heavy you want your upholstered dining chairs.
