The first thing is to keep in mind that the chairs do not have to match the table. They don't even have to match each other, as long as they're comfortably under the dining table. One of the most common questions we get asked is if dining tables and chairs have to match and the answer is absolutely no. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to selecting dining chairs, it all depends on personal preferences.
An important factor when deciding which dining chairs to choose is based on the style you're trying to achieve in your dining space. Is it an informal and relaxed space or a more formal dining room? If it's the former, mismatched chairs are a great way to inject your personality and create a custom look tailored to you. For those who want a more formal dining space, matching chairs are a great way to bring a touch of luxury and opulence to their interiors. For example, an oak dining table with oak dining chairs or a metal dining table with metal dining chairs.
A glass dining table like the Olsen de Brosa dining table above works wonders with the six chair options below. Then consider using armless chairs around the rest of the table or even a bench to help maximize the amount of space around the table for guests. In the upstairs dining room, a hanging lamp from RLM Lighting hangs above a table that combines the legs of the Cherner table with a new white laminate surface. Once you've selected the right table for the style you're trying to achieve, you can work around that to decide which chairs will best suit the table and the space.
